Nerve is YOUR student media and is run entirely by students, for students.

Check out the positions available below, download the job profiles and get applications sent off by midnight Sunday 22nd May. Your applications should convey why you think you’re right for the role (and any supporting work you think we should see). We’ll email you back after the deadline, and the best candidates will be chosen for an interview at Nerve, with the successful candidates for each role announced soon after. You can send applications for as many roles that you feel are relevant to you.

Nerve Online is looking for a new dedicated team to develop the website further into its fifth year. Nerve Online is the online hub for Nerve Media, working with Nerve Radio, Magazine and News to provide daily content ranging from gig reviews to comment articles. After a redesign last year, this year Nerve Online has continued to provide a record amount of content, including interviews with bands The Hoosiers, Enter Shikari and Peace as well as exclusive reviews for a number of games and music albums. Nerve Online also got its own social media channels this year, live blogging events like the SUBU Elections through Twitter and Facebook.

The best part of Nerve Online is that you can work wherever you are, either at home in your pyjamas, between lectures or even in another country! You don’t have to have written for Nerve before and you do not have to be doing a media related degree (one of our current editors does Events Management!).


Nerve Magazine is Bournemouth University’s student magazine, read by thousands of students on campus and even more internationally online. Comprised of features, entertainment, fashion, comment and sport, the magazine publishes a variety of content on a monthly basis.

There are more roles up for grabs than ever before as Nerve Magazine continues to evolve and grow, and we’re looking for a bright and enthusiastic team to take us into the future. All of the roles are below, so if you’re interested – click on the job profiles below for more information about how to apply.


Nerve News works with Radio and Online to produce daily bulletins and news articles about news locally, nationally and internationally. This year, we’re reported on the Paris and Brussels attacks, David Bowie and Terry Wogan’s deaths as well as varsity results and fixtures within Bournemouth University.

All Nerve News committee roles are available to those who are currently in the news team as well as those who haven’t been involved yet but have new and exciting ideas to progress this ever growing and expanding arm of Nerve Media.

So if you are media savvy, a budding journalist  or just interested in a leadership role, then take a look at what’s on offer and apply!


Nerve Radio is Bournemouth University’s very own Student Radio Station based in the heart of the Student Centre. Supported by SUBU, Nerve Radio broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, online on Nerve Media!

This year, we updated our radio player to a new, swanky design. We also had a successful two weeks in March broadcasting on FM radio across the Dorset region. We’re looking for a new committee, so take a look at these roles! It could be you!
