Ideal profile for our team

The Uppsala Association of International Affairs recruits Uttryck trustees at the start of each operational year (around August/September) for an array of different tasks. The Uttryck trustees work closely with the Editors-in-Chief to organize the events, which requires a lot of creativity, dedication and drive to be part of the team. If you want to take the biggest role, by May every year the Association elects the board for the nearest upcoming operational year, there you can become the next Editor-in-Chief.

The positions requires a responsible, independent, and passionate person with good organizational and social skills.

These are the positions that are often open for Uttryck magazine:



As editor, your main focus will be on the printed magazine, working closely with the editors-in-chief. The editors’ workload will increase as the printing date approaches. Your main responsibilities will include keeping in contact with our writers, arranging activities, planning the editorial work, proofreading, and, of course, editing articles. If you wish, you will also get the chance to help with layout, illustrations, and to write yourself. The editorial team of Uttryck Magazine always work closely together!

We look for editors who:

  • Are creative and innovative
  • Have a passion for writing and an interest in foreign affairs
  • Work well in groups
  • Have organisational skills

No previous editorial experience is needed – Uttryck is a place to learn. Previous editorial or writing experience will, however, be to your advantage.


Layout editors

As layout editor, your most important responsibilities will be to put together the layout for each and every one of the printed editions of Uttryck, mainly using Adobe InDesign. You will be working with the layout for the magazine together with one of our editors-in-chief, but you will also be working in close collaboration with the rest of the editorial team, as well as with the writers that are contributing to each issue. An important part in your role as layout editor will be to recruit and coordinate the illustrators for each issue and make sure that the magazine is full of art and illustration. The assignment is rewarding and offers a lot of creative freedom, but also a lot of work, especially during the weeks leading up to the printing of each issue. No previous experience working with layout is required, but it is of course beneficial to be familiar with working in Adobe InDesign. 

We look for layout editors who: 

  • Has an interest in graphic design and layout
  • Is creative, innovative and comfortable with taking a lot of responsibility 
  • Likes working together with other people and contributes to a great group dynamic 


Video Producer

Our goal with this is to increase Uttryck’s presence by creating video and audio content that complements the wide variety of articles supplied by our writers. As a trustee, your main responsibilities would include getting in touch with potential partners and organizing their contributions and work as well as plan, create and format the digital content of the channel.

We look for producers who:

● Innovative, ambitious and hardworking
● Passionate about picture and motion media
● Good at communicating in a group setting
● Able to plan short-term projects and successfully transform ideas into practice
● Have an interest in foreign affairs
