Hard work has enabled us to build Sport Witness to a level where we can take on paid writers on a freelance basis and help them get on a ladder of paid work. We need you to have experience and articles we can read to judge if your work is right for this section. This doesn't have to be paid experience and can even simply be a blog you've been keeping updated.
We want eye catching as well as interesting articles and these are usually more popular when they relate to top Premier League clubs and players. Match reports and previews aren't really our thing, there are enough of those out there already.
It's always informative to tell people something they don't already know and if you have specific expertise on players in a certain league then that's always going to be helpful.
If you feel your work could help Sport Witness continue to grow then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a bit about yourself. Link articles you have recently written and give us some ideas of what you think you could do for us.
All positions are freelance and this isn't ever going to be a full time job. Would best suit those who write about football anyway and think it's about time they got a little money for it. There are no commitments and no pressure to file work other than when you want to, we don't want forced writing.
We have over 500,000 unique visitors every month and are growing at a rate of 10-15% per month. We already attract top level advertising and sponsorship and we think Sport Witness is a good opportunity for many writers out there.
It's impossible to take everyone on so don't be disappointed if we turn you down, your work may simply suit other outlets better.
These are our main current opportunities:
We currently have access to people who speak French, Spanish, Italian, German and Dutch and this helps us bring articles in regarding rumours from the foreign media. We're often ahead of the game by several days and want to expand that area and as such have the following openings:
German Speaking Bundesliga Expert
You need to know the league very well and the players within it, not just those who play for the big clubs. A knowledge of youngsters coming through would help you as you try to make sense of transfer rumours relating to them. A good knowledge of the German media and ability to speak the language will certainly help.
Portuguese Speaking South American Expert
We want to be ahead of the game on what is happening in South America and the best talent there being linked with top English teams. You'll watch these players and be able to explain to readers how they'll fit in, or not, at a football club. Being the first to report news from South America will help you gain a following.
French Speaking Ligue 1 Expert
As Ligue 1 grows in popularity we've found there's a need for knowledge on the players in it, and especially those interesting Premier League clubs. You'll know the players to look out for from all the clubs, not simply the ones we hear the most about.
We are always happy to consider giving opportunities to those outside of these current vacancies, get in touch for a chat.
