Thank Folk For That are branching out…and are looking for new writers, editors and promoters!
Are you a budding writer, a music fanatic, a folking great person!? Well we’d love to hear from you!
Below is a list of positions that we are looking to fill in the next couple of weeks…
We are searching for a new Sub-Editor; to work alongside Dom (chief editor) with responding to emails, keeping a healthy relationship with our lovely PR contacts, organising TFFT writers, proof-reading and publishing final drafts and keeping up to date with music news stories of the day.
For this role, you must be able to spare several hours each day, (so 9-5 workers may want to apply for our other positions), have great organisational skills, be polite and articulate, and be highly responsible and reliable. And of course be a big music lover!
We are also looking for a Reviews Editor; to help organise our review writers, work alongside Dom and our sub-editor in responding to emails and keeping a healthy relationship with our lovely PR contacts, and work with our Interviews Editor with organising live reviews and interviews.
For this role, you must be free for a couple of hours each day/evening, and again have great organisational skills, be a seasoned writer, be polite and articulate, and be highly responsible and reliable.
And finally, we are looking for gig promoters to help spread the Thank Folk For That Live Nights into further cities in the UK!
Having begun in Manchester back in March, we are now looking at taking TFFT Live to the likes of London, Glasgow, Leeds, Newcastle, etc. If you live in a big city, think there’s room for a TFFT Live night, and are willing to help promote the shows each month, then please get in touch.
Ideally, we would like you to have some experience in promoting already, an interest in local bands and local music scenes, an idea of great local gig venues and great organisational skills, with a friendly and fun attitude.
If you are interested in any of the above positions, (all unpaid), please do not hesitate to get in touch with editor Dom…editor[at] thankfolkforthat [dot] com. When getting in contact, we’d also like some information about yourself, along with any examples of previous writing/promoting.
We look forward to hearing from you!
