- Starting Out
UnHerd is one of the fastest-growing new media outlets in the UK. Covering politics, philosophy and culture from an “away-from-the-herd” angle, it publishes well-known and esteemed writers alongside entirely new voices.
The editorial traineeship is a six-month programme which entails a wide variety of tasks that will give the successful candidate fantastic experience in a successful editorial operation.

- Good writing skills
- Organisational skills (familiarity with publishing software a bonus)

- Idea generation
- Forward planning
- Production of podcasts and video
