SportsPro is hiring - sub editor/staff writer

SportsPro is looking to recruit a full-time sub editor and staff writer to join the team in its London office.

This is a rare opportunity to work for an industry-leading sports business media company active across print, digital and events.

The role would suit someone with at least two years' experience in journalism.

The role

The dual role would involve sub-editing all of SportsPro's print publications, as well as contributing written pieces across the company's various platforms.

Working principally on SportsPro's flagship product – SportsPro magazine, published 11 times a year – the sub editor will act as the link between the editor and the designer, and will be responsible for ensuring editorial standards are maintained and that style and production guidelines are adhered to.

The role will be office-based with regular office hours, although very occasional evening or weekend work may be required.

Skills and experience required

- Strong writing skills across a variety of styles – from pithy news pieces to feature-length interviews

- A broad knowledge of international sport and the politics and commercial mechanics behind it, and an interest in business and current affairs

- A demonstrable understanding of proofing, production and sub-editing processes in a print media environment

- An impeccable eye for detail

- Ability to work effectively and enthusiastically as part of a small team working on several concurrent projects

- Effective time management skills to juggle multiple and frequent deadlines

- Adaptability; the confidence to take responsibility and to instil more efficent, effective working systems

- Willingness to travel

- A working knowledge of InDesign is preferable, but not essential

Please send a current CV and covering letter explaining why you are the right fit for this role, and what you could offer a company like SportsPro. Applications should be sent to editor@sportspromedia.com with the subject line ‘sub editor staff writer application’.

Applications are due by Thursday 23rd April.
