Casual Vacancy: Art Editor

ANU Student Media is looking for an ANU student to fill a casual vacancy on our Board of Editors.

The successful applicant will take on the role of Art Editor, which includes, but is not limited to, laying out the ANUSM publications, overseeing the design and branding of ANUSM and managing a team of design sub-editors.

The successful applicant will be expected to put in around 20-30 hours a week on average and will be paid an honorarium to compensate for their time. The position will commence on Saturday 23 June and conclude on the last day of the semester one examination period.  The role requires close collaboration with the seven other Board members, so an ability to work in a team is a must.

There will be a short turn around between the commencement of this role and the first edition of Woroni for 2018. As such, applicants should have a working knowledge of Adobe Indesign. They should also be familiar with, or be willing to learn, the remainder of the Adobe Suite, particularly Photoshop and Illustrator.

The successful applicant can expect to begin the role from Saturday 23 June and will join the ANUSM Board on their editor’s retreat from 23-25 June. There will be an adequate handover period with the outgoing Art Editor and the current Executive with substantial training.

If you are at all interested we invite you to send your application to with the subject line ‘ANUSM Board Casual Vacancy Application’.

Your application must include;

  • your name;
  • student number;
  • year of study;
  • 300 words or less on your relevant experience;
  • 300 words or less on why you want to be art editor at ANUSM;
  • 300 words or less about your vision for the art portfolio; and
  • one example of any written, photographic, videographic or multimedia work.

Applications will close on Friday 22 June, at 5pm.
