Ready to make the next step in your journalism career?
Do you want to work for some of the biggest names in sport, covering some of the biggest events in the world?
Can you be at the heart of content innovation for audiences at home and internationally?
Could you see yourself as a star player in an award-winning team with a reputation for editorial excellence?
Sportsbeat, part of Beat Media Group, is a full-service content and communications agency, and we are looking for a talented journalist to join our Twickenham-based team.
You'd be finding your name in the pages of national and regional media titles and working alongside some of our blue-chip clients, including Team GB, Six Nations Rugby, Football Association, The Open, Champions Cup Rugby, Premiership Rugby, and British Athletics.
You'll need to know your up-and-under from your triple salchow, your LBW from your VAR and appreciate the difference between a hurdle and chase.
Football is important but if it’s your first, last and everything this role is not for you – we covered nearly 50 different sports in 2021.
With a 50-strong team of specialists – from strategists to journalists, videographers to graphic designers, social media producers to broadcast consultants – we offer a complete omnichannel solution to teams, brands, leagues, events, and media rights holders.
Ideal candidates will have at least two years newsroom experience and background in creating content in a variety of forms, including interviews, reports, and features.
You must be able to produce well-written and absorbing sports content, ensuring copy is clean, clear, accurate and informative.
We are looking for a reporter with a wide sporting knowledge (an interest and knowledge of horse racing would be a bonus!).
You'll have to love sport, be a team player and a great all-rounder, with the ability to write and edit content to tight deadlines and have a strong knowledge of various content management systems.
The ideal candidate will have experience working online and knowledge of SEO best practice, while understanding the role social media plays in selling and presenting content.
This is not a position for a journalism starter – you must be unflappable under pressure and deliver work at a consistently high standard, taking initiative and willingness to adapt, with the experience of working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams.
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 working across social media accounts, as well as a track record in print is essential, plus have a flexible approach to working hours and weekends are a necessity. We are looking to fill the role promptly.
All applications should be submitted to Sportsbeat editor-in-chief David Parsons via email – email@example.com
