Description

Staff​ ​writer,​ ​talkSPORT​ ​(Freelance​ ​position)

talkSPORT​ ​has​ ​a​ ​rare​ ​vacancy​ ​for​ ​a​ ​permanent​ ​staff​ ​writer.

You’ll​ ​need​ ​excellent​ ​all-round​ ​sporting​ ​knowledge​ ​(especially​ ​football).​ ​You’ll​ ​be​ ​called​ ​upon​ ​to​ ​work​ ​on​ ​all aspects​ ​of​ ​this​ ​highly​ ​successful​ ​site,​ ​but​ ​mainly​ ​in​ ​news​ ​and​ ​features​ ​–​ ​taking​ ​the​ ​sporting​ ​events​ ​of​ ​the​ ​day​ ​and giving​ ​them​ ​a​ ​unique​ ​talkSPORT​ ​twist.

Based​ ​in​ ​the​ ​talkSPORT​ ​offices​ ​near​ ​London’s​ ​South​ ​Bank,​ ​you’ll​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​identify​ ​what​ ​makes​ ​a​ ​brilliant​ ​story for​ ​talksport.com​ ​and​ ​why​ ​it’s​ ​different​ ​to​ ​other​ ​sites.​ ​You’ll​ ​write​ ​clean​ ​and​ ​original​ ​copy​ ​to​ ​tight​ ​deadlines.​ ​The hours​ ​aren’t​ ​always​ ​sociable,​ ​but​ ​this​ ​is​ ​a​ ​fantastic​ ​opportunity.

Experience​ ​of​ ​filming​ ​interviews​ ​and​ ​events​ ​using​ ​medium​ ​sized​ ​pro​ ​camcorders,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​the​ ​Sony​ ​HXR-NX5E, and​ ​knowledge​ ​of​ ​Final​ ​Cut​ ​Pro​ ​editing​ ​software​ ​would​ ​be​ ​useful,​ ​as​ ​would​ ​Adobe​ ​Photoshop​ ​skills. To apply for this role, please​ ​send​ us ​a​ ​covering​ ​letter, ​CV,​ ​three​ ​examples​ ​of​ ​work,​ ​and​ ​three​ ​feature​ ​ideas​ ​you’d​ ​like​ ​to​ ​see​ ​on talksport.com to careers@news.co.uk
