Become a student blogger

Do you enjoy writing, making videos and using social media? Would you like to gain work experience that's flexible and manageable alongside your studies?

We're looking for student bloggers to produce content about student life at York.

You'll be working with the Marketing team, helping us to create all kinds of content for different purposes - this could include writing blogs, making vlogs, photography, social media takeovers, and providing quotes for printed materials.

What we're looking for

We want students who are:

  • interested in helping prospective students by sharing their experience of living and studying in York
  • creative and good at generating ideas
  • skilled in producing written or video content
  • able to work both independently
  • reliable and able to manage their time effectively to meet deadlines
  • happy to test out new ideas and try new ways of doing things

What's involved?

We'll email you during the year with opportunities to produce content about different aspects of student life. For example, we might be looking for two blogs about Freshers' Week or five blogs about societies. You can then express your interest in different topics and can organise the work around your studies. Check out our student blog and YouTube channel to get an idea of the kind of content you might produce.

You'll be paid £8.72 an hour (plus holiday pay) for creating content - you'll need to be registered as a casual worker on the University's Dashboard system. If you are not registered already you can do this at a later date before any content jobs are agreed.

If you have any questions, just drop us an email at
