Contributions!

The ÒRÉ Brand is the ‘Girlfriends Guide’ to fashion, healthy living and exploring.
Although based in London, we welcome contributors from all over the world with obvious interests in diverse style and content relatable to women of colour living in the U.K!

Moving away from solely mainstream content, the ÒRÉ blog is particularly keen on showcasing practical and realistic tips for young women, stripping away idealistic and unattainable barriers, and relating to everyday women with everyday challenges and dreams!

We’re looking to expand our blogging team and in need of volunteer bloggers to provide informative and creative insight on fashion, beauty, home inspiration, travel, living, and health.

If you’d like to join our Edit team, please read the available roles (click to expand) and send your application using the form below.

Before you apply for any role, please ensure you’ve read and understood our conservative blogging culture, and the importance of keeping personal, political and religious opinions away from blog content. Our Editor in Chief reserves the right to review posts and will reject content that doesn’t comply with our blogging culture!

(Please note: Hello ÒRÉ is not an employer and does not currently offer paid roles or formal work experience for uni students who need to complete their creative course. But we do offer the satisfaction of seeing your work published online and the opportunity to grow with a start-up publishing brand for women! 😉 If you are asked to attend a show or cover an event, expenses will be paid. If you have any questions on possible renumeration, please enquire in your application.)

Volunteer period: Autumn-Winter 2019 (minimum 3 months) varied hours + 2 submissions per week


Fashion & Lifestyle Writers:

Writing is all about engaging your readers from start to finish; grammar, syntax and general flow of creative and unique content is imperative.
Our Writers are free to write about anything within the themes/identity of ÒRÉ – they have direct access to the blog so it’s important we have confidence in their ability to write and stay relevant to our readers.
Themes include: Fashion & Beauty, Home & Lifestyle, Food & Healthy Living
As a Writer for ÒRÉ you can build your own portfolio and readership through the Blog; create new ways to keep your followers coming back!

Social Media/Online Visual Editors:

Do you have a passion for creative and inspiring images?
Do you keep updated with diverse fashion news?

  • Must have a Tumblr or Instagram account

If you’re applying to join the Online Visual Team, please make it clear in the application form which of the ÒRÉ themes you are most interested in: also add a link to your current Instagram or Tumblr page so we can see your style of imagery content.
Please note: you will need to be active on at least one of the visual social media accounts to apply for this position.

Please ensure you have read and understood our Blogging Culture before applying to join the ÒRÉ Edit team. We take our culture very seriously and will not hesitate to terminate the volunteer period if any rule is broken.
