Are you interested in joining our team?

We have two unpaid remote roles up for grabs, currently our entire team work voluntarily but we are hoping to start monetising in the next quarter so in time this should change. We are looking for an editor and a secretary. Although we can't pay you in money, we can pay you in great chat, an opportunity to read/view a lot of wonderful art and your name on a monthly published professional zine which can go straight into the experience sector of your CV!


If you are interested then please email a cover letter and your CV to continuethevoice@gmail.com by March 22nd at midnight (GMT) and read on to read the job descriptors you can indicate which one you are applying for in the subject of your email but you may also apply for both.
