SpursWeb is one of the longest-established, independent Tottenham websites on the internet and is looking to overhaul its content strategy.
We are looking for a talented and committed Tottenham Hotspur fan to create and publish daily content for our website.
This post will be suitable for a budding sports journalist/student who has the time to dedicate to covering the latest Tottenham related activities on a daily basis and able to watch all Tottenham matches, preferably on tv to allow for prompt coverage following the final whistle. The role won’t suit someone who has a typical 9-5 commitment and isn’t able to provide content during the day.
The applicant will have a focus on creating content which isn’t a “copy and paste” of other website stories and instead, deliver relevant and interesting web content for the Spurs fanbase in a timely manner.
We don’t want football writers who simply report the news. We don’t want boring match reports, long articles that no-one has time to consume, or data-rich content that our readers do not value.
We’re looking for writers who can demonstrate that they have the ability to produce creative, added-value content that moves the Spurs-related story on. We are interested in writers who understand what fans are thinking and saying, and are able to comment objectively on the issues that really matter to them.
Please note that this is a freelance position, the applicant will be compensated in line with the current size of the site for their time with potential for further benefit as the audience of the site grows in popularity with the Spurs fanbase.
Many previous SpursWeb writers have gone on to have careers within the the journalism industry and this is the ideal opportunity for someone starting their career.
