A French speaking rugby journalist is needed to join the award-winning team at Sportsbeat, where they will be working with some the biggest organisations in sport.

You will be expected to produce engaging and effective copy in French and English across client platforms and social media (Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn and beyond).

Working with some of the biggest national governing bodies, major event organisers, sponsors, and brands in European sport, namely the FA, RFU and the Olympics (to name a few), Sportsbeat are renowned for delivering outstanding sports sponsorship, PR, and marketing campaigns.

You will be tasked with creating leading digital content. Whether you are composing a snappy tweet; writing clever, attention-grabbing headlines; working closely with the wider team or constantly learning and developing your skills, it will be your love of writing superb copy that delivers fantastic results for some of the biggest brands in sport.

To qualify, you should be a French-speaking rugby or sports journalist or similar with a CV that demonstrates:

  • Experience in a relevant role.

  • You are fluent in French and English.
  • Exceptional writing, editing, and grammar skills.
  • You’re a natural self-starter.
  • You have the ability and eagerness to develop industry knowledge.
  • An interest in sport – you will ideally have a love of rugby.
  • The willingness to occasionally work outside of normal office hours and attend sporting events on evenings and weekends.
  • A strong background working in social media

In return you can expect a rare opportunity to work with some of the biggest sporting brands, attend major sporting events and a benefits package that include 23 days holiday, training and development opportunities and great social events.
