Assistant Editor

  • Help the editors with outreach, training, social media and content creation!

  • Expected time commitment: 1-2 hours a week


  • Drive the content of Unimelb Adventures!
  • We’re generally into more light-hearted pieces! Know your audience, as they say, and not everyone is an Arts student, so…

  • Expected time commitment: 1-2 hours a week

Social media manager/team

  • Post new articles and other engaging content onto our Facebook, and keep our Insta feed lit!
  • The manager oversees the flow of content; the team will post to either platform.
