Histon & Impington Communications CIC wishes to engage a Community Journalist to support the further development of HI HUB, the online publication serving the community of Histon & Impington.
HI HUB delivers regular news and information about issues of local interest and the many and various opportunities, facilities and services available in the village. Since its launch in February 2020, the website has become a go-to resource for a wide range of content that is relevant to local residents, businesses and community organisations, and a weekly email newsletter provides regular notifications of new content on the website.
HI HUB is currently run by volunteers through the company Histon & Impington Communications CIC. The board now wishes to appoint a journalist to work with a team of volunteers to create weekly content that will be valued and appreciated by readers, 95% of whom either live or work in the village.
Preferably connected to or familiar with Cambridgeshire in general, and the Histon & Impington community in particular, the successful candidate will be competent at sourcing material and writing content for online publication. The role will suit a trained journalist with experience of news writing, feature writing and editing. Working collaboratively with the existing team of volunteer writers, who have varying levels of writing experience, will be a key part of the role.
This role is initially for 6 months from October to March 2022 (start date TBA) but is likely to be extended and potentially expanded into 2023. The salary being offered is in line with the community focus of the organisation and its limited resources, but does not reflect the importance of the role, which is seen as key to HI HUB’s further development.
