Job Fairy: CollegeTimes.com Are Looking To Make Hires

We've got some openings!

College Times is an Irish website which was taken over by Balls Media in late 2016. Since then it has undergone a dramatic overhaul in the design, content and overall mission of the site. We are a website for young people in Ireland and further afield, whether they are current, prospective or past students. The site offers a mixture of advice, entertainment and the news that's most important to our audience.

We've got two positions going, suited to different levels of experience, so take a look below!

Deputy Editor

We are looking for a deputy editor with prior experience working for an online media company to join our staff. The successful candidate will be heavily involved in the day-to-day operations of the website and our social media channels, including coming up with ideas, creating and scheduling content and working with the editor to help manage a day and aid of the College Times staff.

This is a really exciting position for an ambitious young journalist looking to make a splash with a company that has built a reputation as one of the most intriguing independent voices in Irish digital media.
