Join our Community


At the University of Essex, there is an incredible creative community. From Filmmakers, Writers, Photographers, illustrators, and so on, students are producing all kinds of innovative works. Rebel exists to provide a platform for this community, give support to those who need it, and connect them to an audience of 14 000 students.

Below are some of our open roles, because we’re always looking for new creators to make content and find innovative ways to create new media. These opportunities are also low commitment roles, meaning that YOU shape tasks and projects around your own schedule. These volunteer roles are a great way to get the most out of your Rebel membership.

Think the bigger conversation is missing your take on things? Whether it’s a one-off album review, or a weekly advice column, our Editorial team is always looking for fresh perspectives and new voices.
