Would you like to join the New Nature team?

New Nature remains the only natural history magazine written, edited and produced entirely by young people: by young ecologists, conservationists, communicators, nature writers and wildlife photographers each boasting an undying passion for the natural world. It is intended, foremost, as a celebration of nature, but also of the young people giving their time, freely, to protect it. The magazine is released online each month and can be downloaded free of charge at the click of a button; with subscribers receiving it directly via email.


We're currently recruiting for three key positions within the New Nature team and welcome individuals under 30 to join us as we attempt to bring the thoughts, views and incredible work of young naturalists to as many people as possible. Information on all three roles can be found below. Applications should be sent to editorial.newnature@gmail.com stating clearly the position in question.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to a vibrant publication that champions the natural world and the younger generation who are doing their best to conserve and protect it.


Key responsibilities:


 Communicating with, and consulting regularly with the Editor in Chief and other members of the New Nature team.


 Sourcing and liaising with potential contributors to the magazine making sure they fit the content and theme of the publication.

You will ensure New Nature Magazine is jampacked with the best content courtesy of young writers across the country. You will seek out and commission articles, respond to pitches, edit and source images. All editors are welcome to submit their own writing to the magazine on a regular basis and are encouraged to input when it comes to design, theme and content-type.
