We are also always looking for people with skills such as video editing, experience with design, social media, research, and fundraising to help us with our day-to-day tasks, too. If you feel that you have anything else to offer to our organisation, then we’d also love to hear from you.

Corporate giving

Work towards your own goals to improve diversity and inclusion within the workplace, by partnering with the PressPad Charitable Foundation and supporting young people of diverse backgrounds gain entry into the journalism industry.

  • Core costs – Running a charity requires funds, even before we can start running programmes. We are a lean organisation and plan to stay this way. Our core costs cover staff, accounting, IT, reserves, and communication.
  • Grants and bursaries – By helping to fund a PressPad Bursary, you will make a transformative impact at a pivotal time for a person from a lower socioeconomic background. Bursaries could:
    • Support aspiring journalists in their cost of living (rent, transportation)
    • Help people get the often vital NCTJ media law modules (and exams) by sitting individual modules alongside a part-time job.
    • Be used to gain access to mental health support
