Become a Student Content Creator

What does a Student Content Creator do?

Student Content Creators (SCCs) are current students at UWE Bristol who are employed as casual workers to assist our marketing and social media teams. As an SCC, you’ll create content that paints a picture of what it’s like to be a student here to prospective students.

If you’re wondering how the role works, it’s simple. We email our team of SCCs to let them know when a piece of content is needed. It’s up to you whether you put yourself forward to create that piece of content. You’ll be paid for all the content you produce for us, which you can fit flexibly around your studies.

Get paid to give us your take on the things that matter to you, learn new skills, boost your CV, and have fun along the way. Whichever course you're studying, or your interests, we'd love to hear from you. We'll provide full training on what you need to do.

You could get involved in:

  • vlogging and blogging
  • TikTok videos and social media takeovers
  • case study creation
  • filming and photoshoots
  • generating creative ideas.
