Work with us
Life In…Magazines takes pride in producing monthly magazines for the community, by the community. Yes, we’re local residents too, meaning that we really care about helping make our borough as great as it can be – and this includes hiring local help where possible. We have a number of opportunities to work with us – either as a volunteer or in paid roles.
When you volunteer, you automatically become a ‘Friend of Life In…Magazines’. Our friends are listed on page 3 in every issue.
Distribution: We make sure our magazines get seen – both in paper form and digitally. We are always seeking help from enthusiastic volunteer distributors. Perhaps you’re retired and want to get out and about amongst your local community. Or maybe you just need an excuse to fit in more exercise. Or it might be that you’re just as passionate about the magazines as we are and simply want to spread the word about them. To be a volunteer distributor we ask that you are fit and healthy and take a minimum of 100 magazines to distribute each month.
Become our eyes & ears: We like to keep our ear to the ground when it comes to all things local, reporting on positive, inspiring and ‘feel-good’ news amongst our pages. But we can’t see or hear everything. That’s where you come in. We’re looking for eagle-eyed ‘reporters’ to share community stories – whether you’ve met someone who you think needs to be recognised or you spot a story on social media.
Work experience: We occasionally take on work experience for editorial opportunities. This includes researching and sourcing material and images, coming up with editorial ideas, social media planning and promotion and editing and copywriting. It’s a great opportunity to get some real experience if journalism is something you’re looking to get into.
Occasionally we have opportunities for you to join the team on a paid basis. These include:
We like to have ‘back-up’ distributors for the magazines, as well as people to help distribute leaflets when requested. If you’re keen on joining our reserve list, please contact us with your full name, address, telephone number and availability.
We’re a little different here at Life In…Magazines and like to think that the magazines speak for themselves. But we do need people to make potential customers aware of the advertising and sponsorship opportunities. If you have had previous sales or telesales experience and would like the opportunity to get involved in working with us, please send us your details in the first instance.
For more information about any of the above opportunities email firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re big supporters of working with local businesses and enjoy exploring creative ideas when it comes to helping one another. If you’ve got an idea for a mutually-beneficial collaboration, then we’d love to hear from you. Email email@example.com
Become a friend
Do you have some extra time on your hands? Would you like to help your favourite magazine out? If you can spare an hour or two each month, become a Friend of Life in… Magazines.
As a volunteer Friend, you can help us deliver the magazines within your local community. Or, if you have your ear to the ground and can sniff out what’s going on, we’d love you to send us interesting stuff that we might want to include in the magazine.
In return, you’ll get a mention in the magazine each month you help us. And an occasional treat for helping us too.
