We want to find more of you to create content for us. In order to ensure we can do this, we are only recruiting TWO content creators in summer 2016. The money we normally use for the third content creator will, instead, be used to fund some specific content that we’ll be advertising shortly.

Yes. Freelancers can now get paid to work on specific content.

If you’re still interested in working with us for six months, see below…

Come work for Rife Magazine as a paid content creator for six months.

Sometimes it must feel like there are no paid jobs in the creative industries. Especially when you’re young.


Well, you should apply to be one of Rife magazine’s PAID content creators. We are Bristol’s digital platform for young people to create content and have their say.

If you’re 18-24 and want a job making videos, writing articles, taking photos of things you care about, from skating to music to politics to sex to comedy, and so on and so on, then this is the job for you.

We want two young content creators to come join us for six months in a paid role where you make content for Rife magazine, blogs, articles, videos, photos.

No qualifications necessary; just good ideas, enthusiasm and a desire to develop your skills.
