After eight phenomenal weeks of movie trivia and pictures of Monet, the reign of Shivani and Katie has finally come to a close.

But, as our tragic break-up article should have informed you, all good things must come to an end, and this cloud has a definite silver lining for all you film fanatics out there, as it is officially time for two of you to step up to the challenge, and steal our jobs.

You heard correctly, Cherwell is recruiting, and we need two of you to take over our legacy. Applications must be in by Monday 6 March at 8pm and no prior experience is needed—both of us were freshers when we began our reign of power, and enthusiasm is the most important thing.

So if you’re a budding student journalist, a fan of film and TV, or just generally think you could do a better job than us, get your film finesse on and apply now! Check out cherwell.org/recruitment for more details.


For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
