I suppose you could say that I'm talking from experience, but as Kirsty also says, if you can include examples of your relevant work it makes for a better application. It's even better if you can produce something entirely original just for your application, as it will demonstrate how you can apply your skills to TowersTimes, as well as show your eagerness to contribute to the site.

News Reporter was never a position that was advertised. Ideally we're looking for people to fulfill the positions that Rob posted earlier, these being:

Web designer
Wordpress expert
Adobe Flash designer

Ah, I was just wondering from this post:

But I guess the opportunity has passed?

So when do we find out if we have got the job? Or do we assume that if we haven't heard that we haven't got?

We currently don't have a closing date, however if you are interested I would strongly advise you to get your application in early as we potentially could close applications at any time.

Good luck!

We don't currently have a closing date for applications. I would imagine a week or two maximum.
