In addition to our core staff team, we employ several students on a casual basis as part of our student team.

We are currently recruiting for two roles: social media content and print distribution. If you are interested in either of these role and would like to find out more then please email Nick Slater at n.slater@lboro.ac.uk. 

We have two other opportunities to earn money and gain experience:

Creative skill share

Would you like to run an arts workshop? Do you have a creative skill you could teach others? We are always looking to add students to our pool of arts workers. We will give you training in how to run a workshop (including online workshops) and then pay you for any workshops we book you for. Find out more about our creative skill share.

The Limit

We pay students to write articles and/or produce video content for our online magazine, which celebrates the creative community at Loughborough. Find out more about The Limit.

Our 2020/21 student team members are:

Student Team Ben Heslop

Ben Heslop

Technical support

I am a third year Mechanical Engineering student, who has just got back from a work placement year within the heavylift and transport industry. I have arts background within theatre lighting and sound and have pursued this throughout university working for both LSU Crew at major events within the Students Union and occasional shows with Stage Society.

Outside of work, I’m normally found rock climbing, mountaineering or adventuring in the most remote part of the country I can find!

Corinne Bills

Technical support

I'm a creative writing MA student, I write poetry about the chaotic confusion of being alive and plays that force you to confront the chaos head on. I love anything hard-hitting, experimental and vulnerable. I have a lot of experience running lights and sound for all kinds of creative events, but in my spare time I run a student focused alternative theatre company called Beacon Productions. We focus on experimenting with as many forms of mixed mediums to create performance pieces that discuss the things in life that can both connect and alienate us all.

Jodie Middleton

Photographer

I am a second-year student studying Biological Sciences. I've been a photographer for six years now and help run the photography society here at Loughborough as the media secretary. I have explored many different types of photography over the years and have worked for companies taking photos at equestrian competitions, as I am a horse rider myself. I've also covered family events such as christenings and parties.

When I haven't got a camera in my hand, I also love to keep my creative side in touch with painting and drawing.

Andrew Antwi

Speech Bubble Co-ordinator

I am an MSc student at Loughborough University London studying Risk, Governance & International Management. Having learnt the piano from a young age, I soon grew a significant interest in artistic performance. During my teens, this interest grew, and I immersed myself in spoken word and poetry. I have experience in events management during my time as an undergraduate, and I am now in the works of setting up a music production company with two friends.

Megan Constable

Speech Bubble Co-ordinator

I am a doctoral researcher at Loughborough University, conducting a practice-led PhD in creative writing as Other. I began studying creative writing forms during my Media and Communications BA at Goldsmiths University of London, where I specialised in Script and Prose. I also hold an MA from the University of Leeds in Writing for Performance and Publication. 

My interest in spoken word began when I attended a performance poetry night hosted by poetry collective Bang Said the Gun, whom I have remained in contact with.

I’m passionate about all forms of creative writing from page to stage and I’m looking forward to working closely with LU Arts this year.
