About the Role
Politics is an insanely complex, gritty, global construct challenging societies the world over. To help our community understand the who, what, how, when and why so they can take action and affect change in the world, we are seeking well-informed critical thinkers, skilled in making the complex accessible without stripping back critical information, to contribute political essays on our digital publishing platform.
Our dream political writers will have an innate understanding of UK, US, European and / or African history, culture and political affairs, with a passion for galvanising the masses through unbiased, three-dimensional political analyses.
We especially encourage applications from writers from minority ethnic backgrounds and the LGBT+ community, as well as those based outside London, to reflect the diversity of our global community.
