Get Involved

Freelancer

Want to work with Changing Ireland? We’re always on the lookout for talented freelance writers, so send us your CV, a brief note telling us about yourself, and a few writing samples. If it’s a good fit, we’ll get in touch to discuss rates and how you could help. (A background in, or knowledge of, community development and the community and voluntary sector would be useful, but is not a requirement.)

Internships

Maybe freelancing isn’t right for you, or maybe you’re interested in helping out in some other way… We’ve brought on paid apprentices and created work placements in the past. If you’d like to do something like that, send editor Allen Meagher a brief note explaining what you had in mind and the area you’d like experience in, and he’ll let you know if it could work.

Pitch

Have a specific story idea you’d like to write for us? We love getting pitches for relevant content, so don’t be afraid to reach out. Pull together a pitch telling us about your idea, how you plan to approach it and who you’re thinking of interviewing, and we’ll let you know if we like it and go from there.

SUGGEST A TOPIC

Think we’re missing out on a big story, or think we’re not giving something enough attention? Let us know! Get in touch to tell us what you’re interested in hearing more about and why you think it’s important for us to write about, and we’ll see what we can do.

Nominate

Know someone working in the community and voluntary sector who you think might have a lot to share or who maybe deserves a big ol’ clap on the back? Nominate someone for one of our profiles [LIST OF Q&As] by sending us an email explaining why you think we should talk to them, giving us some examples of what they’ve done, and sharing their contact information.

Volunteering And Jobs

Want to get involved in the community and voluntary sector without having to work for
Changing Ireland? We’re offended, but we get it. For volunteering opportunities, you can use the Find a Volunteer Role tool on Volunteer Ireland. Want to get paid for your community work? Activelink lists plenty of job vacancies in the sector, and sends out weekly mailers listing new opportunities.
