Play A Key Role In Shaping Our Next Chapter

Bido Lito! is a monthly magazine for and about Merseyside’s thriving creative community. We’re all about the here and now – the musicians, artists, makers and creative minds that make the region’s independent scene stronger than it’s ever been.

At the centre of Liverpool’s independent creative scene since 2010, Bido Lito! provides Merseyside with news, reviews, features and comment on the region’s vibrant cultural landscape. Bido Lito! print magazine arrives on the streets of our beloved city each month, while our digital home at bidolito.co.uk is constantly updated with new multimedia content. We love the physical nature of our magazine, and its inky feel reflects our origins in the DIY zine culture that has always flourished in the region; but we’re also fascinated about the intersection of print and digital platforms, especially in today’s digitally dominated landscape. We feel that there’s a balance to be found between the two in a way that suits the fast-paced and more considered needs of the modern world.

We believe that a strong do-it-together attitude is at the heart of all of this great creativity that we celebrate. Our aim is to highlight and encourage this as much as possible. Alongside Bido Lito! we also run a successful creative agency, working with a variety of partners on a diverse mix of creative projects.

We are looking for three new members of staff to join the team, as we continue to develop and grow.

Application deadline for all posts is 5pm, Monday 28th May. Interviews will take place on 7th and/or 8th June. Anticipated start date is 2nd July (flexible).
