YFM is recruiting | Calling all writers.

YFM are on the lookout for a small crew of energetic writers/content curators who love all things food and are keen to volunteer their time.

If you love to write, can sniff out a succulent lead, know the texture of a good story, and have the editing skills needed to slice and dice-up online content, we want to hear from you.  If you’re excited about enhancing the food knowledge and skills of young Australians, even better. You need not have worked as a writer but we’re looking for people with confidence and a clear voice.

YFM National is growing a communications project team and there are currently three Sydney-based* positions up for grabs:

  • Content Curator – create an engaging, varied content calendar drawing on Australian and global food/agri themes that are relevant and accessible to our audience. You should feel comfortable creating and meeting deadlines, and be both a doer and delegator. Approx. time required for role: 4-6 h/wk
  • Writer I – You can dive in and out of food-related topics with ease. You are passionate about writing, learning, and translating that knowledge into clear action-based blog posts. Approx. time needed for 2 blog posts per month
  • Writer II – You are equally as passionate about writing, learning and translating knowledge into clear calls-to-action but might have a little less time than Writer I. Approx time needed for 1 blog post per month.

If one of these positions is calling your name, and you can commit to being involved for a minimum of 6 months, get in contact and lettuce know.

To Apply: Send us your CV, your answers to the following 3 questions (listed below) and  2 x 300 word (max.) blog posts on a food topic of your choice to sydney@youthfoodmovement.org.au. Applications due by midnight Friday 30th January.

1) Why YFM? Why are you keen to get involved?

2) What appeals to you about creating online content?

3) List 5 words to describe your writing style

* Although there aren’t any voluntary positions available for this project outside of Sydney, don’t throw your peas in. Watch this space. We’ll be looking to source content from around the country soon.
