Job Description

We are looking for an experienced sports reporter to join the ever-growing ranks of award-winning national press agency Sportsbeat based in our London office in Wimbledon.

We are primarily looking for a reporter with an encyclopedic knowledge of rugby union, football and cricket, particularly the English Premiership and Celtic League (the National League system would be a bonus), as well as the Premier League and Football League, plus the County Championship but ideally who also has an interest and strong understanding of Olympic sports.

You'll have to love sport, be a team player and a great all-rounder, with the ability to use Quark XPress, edit content to tight deadlines and have a strong knowledge of various content management systems.

As well as being a talented sub-editor and writer, we are looking for a reporter with a minimum of three years’ experience in a newsroom and knowledge of social media platforms – this is not a position for a journalism starter.

Candidates will need to have a full NCTJ diploma in journalism, including 100-words per-minute shorthand and should possess a full clean driving licence.

Enthusiasm and a love of digital media and a track record in print is essential, as well as a flexible approach to working hours are a necessity. We are looking to fill the role promptly.

Contact Details

All applications should be submitted to Sportsbeat editor-in-chief David Parsons via email - - by no later than Friday April 7.


Please mention HoldtheFrontPage when applying for this role. This advert will expire on Friday 7th April 2017.
