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 firstname.lastname@example.org
