Nerve Online, the youngest platform of the Nerve family, is going into its third year, growing bigger and better every time. With a site redesign and record number of content and articles last year, Nerve Online is looking for a team of enthusiastic writers to contribute to one of three sub-sections: Entertainment, Fashion or Features.

In the upcoming months, Online is planning to expand even more, producing more video and interactive content whilst also looking forward to exciting interview and review opportunities. We’re looking for people who want to produce content about anything and everything, from a gig review to talking about something you’re passionate about, Nerve Online is the place you can showcase just that, and all from the comfort from your own bedroom!

The Magazine team are looking for some talented writers, illustrators, photographers and designers to carry Nerve Magazine into the new academic year.


Head of Nerve News: Sarah Tijou (

Last year, Nerve News became a bigger and more fluent platform to broadcast and publish output.

It also saw the birth of two completely new news radio shows, which have excelled in audience reach and journalistic ability. We also produced a record number of news bulletins over our FM period, all with originally sourced audio. Our video and online platforms have grown and made unbelievable progress since last year’s team and we are looking to expand on this further.

So if you are media savvy, a budding journalist or film maker or have an exciting idea to expand News further, then take a look at what’s on offer and apply!
