Spaceport Launch Crew 2022

Spaceport Cornwall

Volunteer Role 1 month Cornwall, UK

Uploaded 20 Dec 2021

Job Description

Are you a young video editor, podcaster, social media expert, reporter or print journalist?

We’re looking for a budding new 2022 media crew (aged 11-16) based in Cornwall to help tell the story of the first ever space launch from the UK – taking place at Spaceport Cornwall next year.

We want you to document this historic moment and share the lead up to launch with the rest of the world: the behind the scenes action, exclusive interviews with the team and our partners and be in attendance at the first launch festival.

If selected, you’ll be given training and equipment needed to get these stories out there. We’ll give you a timeline of events happening in the lead up to launch and we’ll be there to help every step of the way; teaching you how to edit footage, film content, record podcasts and post stories – all to be hosted on the Spaceport Cornwall channels.

Through this competition you’ll be given the chance to work with local and national media partners – taking a great first step in your career, practicing the skills you want to develop and learning more about the opportunities in the growing UK Space Industry.
