Editorial Elections 2013

There has been no better time to become a member of the InQuire team.


With the newspaper being at its highest quality to date, and with a brand new revitalised website with constantly updated content, why not get involved and continue the hard work of our current editors? We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic and dedicated individuals committed to the future of the University of Kent’s ‘student voice’. The important things to remember are that no experience is necessary. We give full training, so even if you haven’t been heavily involved in the society at all up until now, that shouldn’t be a reason to put you off from nominating yourself! InQuire is a fantastic opportunity to develop both technical and communication skills, whilst working alongside a group of hugely talented (and fun!) people; particularly with the recently cemented collaborations with KTV and CSR. As long as you have a genuine interest in the role to which you apply, you can be a successful member of the InQuire committee. It’s a great way to volunteer, as well as develop your own skills and get valuable journalistic and media experience.
