Deadline: 14 August 2017
The Manchester Evening News is seeking to recruit a digital football journalist to join the team to create United and City content and video that fans want to devour. This exciting opportunity is an excellent platform to display your work for a website which has in excess of 70 million pages view a month. Everyone covers United and City but not to the brilliant extent we do at the Manchester Evening News.
Reporting to the Football Editor, you will create compelling content and video on the clubs – and promote it and engage with fans on social media. You’ll be bursting with ideas which embrace the best of digital journalistic practice. And you’ll know where to dig out the stories that matter to the fans by being all over the social channels and forums that live and breathe Old Trafford and the Etihad.
The role will offer flexibility and you’ll effectively be given a blank canvas – to shape the role into what you want it to be. If you prove yourself on the desk you’ll be rewarded – with the chance to cover games and join the match rota, as well as attend press conferences. If you have a feature idea or a story tip from a contact, you’ll be given the time to work on it. We want unique content that chimes with fans and you’ll be given the freedom to experiment in all areas. If you’ve got something you’d like to try for United or City, we want you to try it!
We will give you a platform to shine digitally, grow your ‘brand’, express your opinion to a global audience and cover two of the most exciting clubs in Europe. We want you to innovate and take our coverage to the next level.
