Football Reporter / Text commentator

Major sports website seeking freelance football (soccer) journalists for match coverage

We seek motivated individuals with excellent English skills, a keen eye for football, and a desire to work in a high-pressure, rewarding environment to produce live text commentary and match reports for global football matches.

Live match coverage consists of evocative, detailed description of the game in text form for display on website and occasionally via SMS. Work will generally be conducted online but stadium assignments are also possible. Updates are required no more than 3 minutes apart – this is not a job for those who cannot work quickly.

Match reports will be published within minutes of the game’s completion and will require analytical skill, the ability to work to deadlines, and basic HTML ability.

All successful applicants will be paid on a per-match basis at negotiable rates: none of this work is voluntary. Applicants who proceed to impress at this task may be able to step up to player ratings, news coverage, and even full time positions in future if they are thus inclined.

Please send a CV, a sample of a football match report and brief covering information explaining how and why you are suitable for the live commentary aspect of the role
