Job Description

We are looking for a talented and experienced sports reporter to join award-winning national press agency Sportsbeat based in our London office in Wimbledon.

We are primarily looking for a reporter with a good knowledge of rugby union and cricket, but ideally who also has an interest and strong understanding of football and 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 two 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 working across social media accounts, as well as a track record in print is essential, plus have a flexible approach to working hours are a necessity. We are looking to fill the role promptly.
