Do you fancy yourself an expressive and interesting writer?


Want to get paid to produce awesome content while you study?


Yeah… We thought so…

For nearly the last decade The Inside Word has been a home for future University of Auckland students to get the inside word (get it…?!) on what life is like as a first year uni student.

The Inside Word has gone from strength to strength and is now no longer the humble blog it once was but now a home for thousands of readers a month to see what first year at Auckland is all about.

The Inside Word will is an exciting platform where students from a range of different backgrounds and study choices upload content about anything to do with their university experience for future students to see.

First years, second years, third years, med students, law students, future teachers and just good old fashioned social media influencers contribute to The Inside Word…

And we want YOU to be a part of it.

So, what’s the gig?

The Inside Word for 2020 and onwards will be a hub for student generated content that will be seen and interacted with by everyone from students thinking about coming to study at the University of Auckland, to students who are already here and wanting to check out what other students are up to.

But this content won’t generate itself!

We need a dedicated team of people who are prepared to vlog, blog, and create their way to pseudo internet fame as an Inside Word blogger.

You will get to work with a team from the University of Auckland’s central communications and marketing team, be paid for the content you produce and get to have a real influence on both future and current students.

What kind of people are we looking for…?

Do you know how to take a good photo? You’re a bit of a foodie? Fancy yourself an expert on studying? Always wanted to inspire others? Know how to use iMovie? Write a mean essay?

If you possess the skill and passion to turn your experience into content for The Inside Word then this is the gig for you.

We are looking for creative, abstract, interesting and passionate people to join The Inside Word team.

You need to be hard working and be able to meet deadlines.

You will be asked to produce content regularly so you need to be consistent. Not the kind of person to start something then not finish. (You know who you are…)

It doesn’t matter what you are studying. People are out there wanting to hear about it so apply to be an Inside Word Content Creator!

Sounds great! How do I apply?!

Head to the link below and submit a piece of demo content.

Write a blog, record a vlog, send in your podcast, show us some snaps. WHATEVER!

If it’s creative, interesting and informative, we want to see it.

For some ideas have a good read through some of the previous blogs from 2019 and 2020. Check out the videos and have a look at the University of Auckland Instagram as well. This is the kind of content we are wanting to see.

Make sure you STAND OUT! We usually get over a hundred applications each year so if you want to be chosen, make sure your submission is going to set you apart.
