With over 2 Million hits across our platforms so far this year, we’ve shown that it's possible to enter a highly saturated market and become a global competitor whilst sticking to our independent roots.
Our dominant audience is in the USA, accounting for over 40% of our audience share with countries such as the United Kingdom, German, Sweden and Canada following closely behind.
Founded in 2018 and becoming a full-time project in September 2019, we’re growing, fast! We’re looking for passionate and experienced writers to join us.
PositionsWe are currently looking for experienced Music Journalists and other roles will be available in the future.
Music Journalist (Freelance Position)We believe there is still a market for written album reviews, features, and in-depth interviews. We have a number of globally recognised labels and PR companies already working with us so we have access to great artists.
As a freelance Music Journalist working for RAWMUSICTV, we’ll expect you to deliver interesting opinions on the latest albums, which you will have early access to. We’ll also be looking for great interviews, unique questions and intriguing headlines. We’re NOT looking for “Slipknot - Album Review” or “Papa Roach - Interview”. We want the inside scoop, you need to find the angle and the story and deliver this to our readers.
Anyone can write an album review, we want storytellers. People know what the album sounds like, they can listen to it for free on Spotify, so we ‘re not looking for: “and the drums come in after a guitar riff”, we want the story behind the album. It’s your job as a journalist to find that story.
You’ll receive full support and development.
Here’s an example of a simple album review
PayAlbum reviews and interviews pay £25 per article with a minimum 700 word count for album reviews and a minimum number of questions for interviews. It’s important to understand that whilst we’re growing fast, we still need to be fiscally conscious. One thing to keep in mind, the more we grow, the more we pay. The people that have been with us the longest will be first in-line to receive higher pay. Payment for features will be discussed on an individual basis.
LanguageWe expect you to speak fluent English. English as a second language is absolutely fine as long as you are fluent.
Can I apply if I live outside of the UK?YES! You just need a paypal account or bank account that accepts SEPA or IBAN transfers. UK payments will ALWAYS be paid via BACS.
ApplyBEFORE YOU APPLY
You MUST have knowledge of the artists we cover, we’re looking for people passionate about the artists we love, not someone looking for a bit of extra cash anywhere they can find it.
