Press Team Recruitment


Press Team Recruitment

The Secretariat of the Sub Saharan International Model United Nations is seeking to recruit enthusiastic media and journalism-oriented persons to join its 2017 Press Team.

As a valued member of the Press Team, you will tour the conference venues as a photographer, cameraman, interviewer and/or blogger to keep track of what happens in and out of events and committee sessions. You will help us compile pictures, videos and stories of the conference for delegates to view during and after, and to advertise future editions of SAIMUN.

Among other things, this will include observing conference proceedings to photograph, film or write about, speaking with chairs and delegates to get their views about their debates, committees and the wider conference, and interviewing our keynote speakers and diplomatic guests.

This is a great opportunity to get journalistic and media experience while contributing to the work of an ambitious charity.
