Join our team!

We are looking for passionate, motivated, and talented individuals to join the Spheres of Influence team! If you have writing, editorial, marketing, social media, or web design skills, we would love to have you. 

Joining our non-profit entails connecting with young professionals and students across the world, the expansion of soft skills, and furthering global connectivity and awareness. While Spheres of Influence is entirely volunteer-based, we aim to make this experience as reciprocal as possible by providing opportunities for professional growth and capacity building.

We deeply value having input from a diverse range of individuals. In addition to making international relations more accessible, we strive for inclusivity on our platform and especially encourage contributions from people who are Black, Indigenous, of colour, living with disabilities, of different religions and cultural backgrounds, and identify within the LGBTQ2+ community.

Staff Writer (Volunteer)

We are looking to hire dedicated, passionate, and talented writers to join our team. As part of the Spheres of Influence staff, you will contribute two articles per month to be published on our website. Your work will become part of our initiative to spread awareness about international relations and current events, and you will have the freedom to write about topics you’re knowledgeable and passionate about.

This is an ideal opportunity for students, recent graduates, and young professionals to have your work published and build your portfolio while playing a key role in the growth of our website. You will have the freedom to choose what you want to write about, as long as it fits into one of our series.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and we typically review them at the end of each month. 

Guest submissions

We are also happy to receive and publish one-off submissions from guest contributors who are unable to commit to becoming a staff writer. If you wish to submit an article, please email it directly to editor@spheresofinfluence.ca

Please carefully read through our submission criteria.

Editor (Volunteer)

We are looking for a team of attentive and detail-oriented individuals to join the Spheres of Influence editorial board. Our editors play a crucial role in ensuring the articles we publish are high quality and factual. Also, the editors will ensure each of the articles fit the conversational and jargon-free writing style that is central to our mission of making important information related to international relations accessible. This is an ideal opportunity for students, recent graduates, and young professionals to gain editorial experience in the field of international relations and journalism.

This is a volunteer position that requires around 5 hours per week. Each week, you will edit 2-3 articles while working closely with a team of writers and fellow editors. 

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and we typically review them at the end of each month.
