Want to work alongside Happy Mag’s team in Sydney? We’re hiring a new intern in our Newtown office – it could be you!

We are looking for writers and music lovers to join our team of contributors once a week in our Newtown based studio. So if you’re gifted with a pen (or keyboard) and you’re always plugged in, with a passion for Aussie music, arts and culture then we’d love to hear from you!

This is an in-house role, and the experience could be accredited with relevant media and journalism qualifications, and a letter of reference can be provided.

The role is initially unpaid, however as we expand our editorial output we hope to develop a full time in-house role for the right candidate.

We wouldn’t expect any work-related or out of pocket costs to arise, however these would of course be covered if necessary.

Some skills and specifications that would be highly regarded include:

  • Experience in a writing role in the arts, publishing or entertainment industry
  • Knowledge of the music and arts scene in Sydney and beyond
  • Excellent verbal communication skills
  • Excellent written skills including editing, spelling, and grammar
  • Excellent organisational and interpersonal skills

The job specification looks something like this:

  • Researching relevant and interesting news stories
  • Write highly compelling articles to strict deadlines
  • Develop high-quality features and conduct compelling interviews
