Writer (Blog)

I run a vintage clothing website called Garm Shack and I am on the hunt for anyone who would be interested in writing a blog/blogs for us. I am struggling to find ways of people who would be interested in this so thought maybe this is a good start. So like I say I am looking for anyone who can write blogs on the following topics:

  • Fashion – Mainly 90s fashion, but can be on any fashion really as we want to cover all angles.
  • Music
  • Popular culture/ anything relevant currently

After years of hard work, we have a decent sized following for an SME. I am approaching 30k followers on Instagram and we get most of our traffic through Instagram and obviously our website. So whoever is willing to work with us, will get credit where ever we post the blogs, and could potentially be good work experience for anyone to say they worked with a local SME externally.

Look forward to hearing from you,

Kind Regards,

Lyle Cross (info@garmshack.com)

Andriod App and Website Developer

This is a freelance role that can be performed from home.

I am looking for a creative and technically minded group or individual to create an app for Android and a desktop website.

I want to bring forums into a more modern format – therefore I need things like user registrations created, a trending page, a user to be able to set up discussions, share discussions on other platforms, receive notifications, user profile feature and I will need back-end administration and for somebody to show me how to use it. Examples of similar formats are 9gag and Reddit – (due to scale it may be more suitable for the group than an individual)

I have been an entrepreneur from a very young age and “Just Express Yourself Ltd” is my latest Start-Up Venture. I have run some of the worlds largest forums as a hobby in the past but they are outdated concepts now so I want to bring a modern version of them with my own USP for it which I can discuss in greater detail if you are interested. I have the business acumen and marketing skills but I lack the technical skills to make this a success and that is where you will come in and I truly believe this will be an exciting project for whoever gets involved.

A basic pay for the work can be discussed with anyone interested but incentives/additional payments will also be made based on member registration levels so somebody with knowledge on things like SEO would be preferred.

Music journalist and Videographer needed

LMSUKmedia a music events & promotion business has two job opportunities available. We are looking to expand our team with a music journalist and videographer who can edit interviews. These roles would be volunteered during a trial period which would then be turned into a paid role if we are satisfied with the job.

LMS started out as a blog back in March 2o16. We felt as if no else was helping out talent, upcoming artists or providing the exposure necessary to encourage the public to listen to them.

As all young adults, we wanted to earn a living doing what we love and that involved being a part of the music industry. We recruited an entire team, each member bringing a different skill-set and all sharing the same aspiration of making LMS a household name across the UK.

Our first real venture was with LMS Promotions. We recruited graphic designers, journalists,  photographers and begun by offering promotional services at reasonable price. After gaining a significant social following, we started to put on our own music events including live sessions and gigs. It wasn’t long before we were achieving success across all fields and were meeting and interviewing bands who had great talent! After a long discussion, LMS decided to offer ‘The full package’ –  every aspect of the music industry organised by one organisation. LMS Records produces the music and distributes it, whilst our promotional team spreads the word far and wide.

This is just the start for LMS. In the past year we’ve had the pleasure of meeting music legends such as Alex Turner and Van McCann, as well as interviewing Blossoms, Little Comets, The Hunna, The Amazons and Craig David!

The LMS team have a real passion to give talented artists the kick-start they need in their music careers whilst keeping it affordable. We will always keep the core values of Local Music Scene the same but will continue our desire to push the boundaries within in the music industry.
