Online Writer

I think the role has taught me to address the student audience, and adapt my style of writing to the tone of The Daily Touch.

Your first year


Onwards to our company and culture…

We are The Daily Touch

As the UK’s most-shared, youth-led media organisation, we're the lively entertainment website appearing on every student’s newsfeed.

Our Culture - What we do

We've grown rapidly in the last few years, transforming from a small student blog to a nationwide viral sensation. Our swanky new website contains everything from video features to full-length news articles and quizzes. 

The future is looking very exciting. Our readership is ever-increasing, with over half a million visitors to our site every month, and we have big plans to continue this trend.

Nothing will have more clout on your CV than a portfolio of highly-shared articles - and we're talking in the thousands here. 

Our Future - Where we're going

Why Graduates Are Key to Our Future


Sally Bracegirdle, Editor of The Daily Touch

Our mission at The Daily Touch is simple: we create lists and digestible news for the student and graduate generation, and we produce content they want to read and want to engage with.

Our site is an open and accessible platform for students and graduates to gain journalism experience writing about the things that matter to them the most.

It's a very exciting time to be a part of the Daily Touch. Our website update has brought a host of enhanced features, including interactive quizzes and a chance for us to make fools of ourselves through new DT Original video shorts.

We have exciting plans to continue to expand our reach across the UK: if you are interested in getting involved then apply today.
