January is over so it might be time to poke your nose out and try something new.
Mumsnet Local was revamped last year and we have 180+ local sites across the UK. We aim to have up-to-date info on what's happening where you are, like lots of great ideas for activities to amuse the kids in Half Term. Please do have a look and sign-up to your local site. Where we already have Local Editors, we are now sending out monthly newsletters full of great suggestions of things to do, exclusive local offers for Mumsnetters and lots else besides.
We need your help to make this as good as it can be
Please pop over and upload a listing, review a local service or have a chat to folks in your local area. Or, if you have more time and are looking to make a little money, you could take on a local site as a Mumsnet Local Editor?
We are looking for Editors in:
Anglesey Belfast Blackburn Blackpool Blaenau Gwent & Torfaen Bradford Carmarthenshire Ceredigion Channel Islands Cheltenham & Gloucester Cheshire (specifically, West Cheshire ? sharing with existing Editor) Conwy & Denbighshire County Londonderry/Derry County Antrim County Armagh County Down County Fermanagh County Tyrone Coventry Derby Dudley Dumfries & Galloway East Ayrshire East Riding of Yorkshire Glasgow Gloucestershire Gwynedd Ipswich Isle of Wight Kingston Upon Hull Kirklees Leicestershire (sharing with existing Editor) Luton London: Barking & Dagenham London: Brent London: Hackney London: Hillingdon London: Redbridge London: Sutton Monmouthshire & Newport Moray Munster Neath Port Talbot & Bridgend North Ayrshire & Inverclyde Northampton Northamptonshire Norwich Nottinghamshire Oldham & Rochdale Perth & Kinross Powys Reading Renfrewshire Rotherham Rutland Scottish Borders Slough Solihull South and North Lanarkshire Southampton Southend South Yorkshire Stirling & Clackmannanshire North Staffordshire Swindon Teeside Warrington Wakefield York
Mumsnet Local Editors manage their Mumsnet Local site, keeping it clean, tidy and up-to-date. They write newsletters and work with local ambassadors (voluntary) to hold meet-ups locally.
Local Editors can make money by contacting businesses local to them and asking them to advertise on their local sites. If you become a Local Editor, you will keep the revenue from the local advertising and offers that you book.
If this sounds of interest to you, then please do send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org with 'interested in becoming a Local Editor' in the subject field. It helps if you tell us a bit about yourself in the email.
Local is still in its infancy but it's growing all of the time: In the last year we have seen some local editors who have been working hard to build local contacts and communities really starting to see dividends, with several seeing monthly earnings topping £1,000. It is slow and steady but the potential is great for the right people.
We very much look forward to hearing from you if you are interested or have any questions.
Happy New Year
PS, we are still processing emails from the last recruitment thread, as we've been spring cleaning our set-up process, so don't worry, you will hear from us in the next few days.
Hi Emma, I would be really interested in becoming local editor for Warrington. There is so much going on around here that isn't on your site. I sent you a PM a few weeks ago. Are you still looking for someone in my area? Thanks Kerry
I'd be interested in rotherham, my only concern would be that I am a Carer for my mil and am claiming carers allowance so I can only officially work a few hours a week. Would it be likely to affect that at all? I have spare time and ds starts nursery soon.
