Description:

GiveMeSport is a top 5 sports site in the UK, officially partnered with the NBA and NFL and has over 30 million visits monthly. We have the biggest sports media page on Facebook with over 25m fans, followed by ESPN with 13m. We have huge growth plans globally and the US/North America is a huge priority within that.

We are building a new team and looking for people with huge passion and knowledge across a range of sports, as well as bringing great, fresh ideas to the table and a track record of success on social media.

We are looking for those with senior leadership and editor experience, as well as writers. All candidates must have experience of promoting content to Facebook and must have experience working in the sports media industry.

Candidates would preferably be in New York or Toronto, but we are flexible and will have several virtual contributors working remotely in any case.

ESSENTIAL SKILLS
Experience of sourcing and researching your own stories via social and digital media sources.
Sports knowledge - breadth across sports being valued more than depth in particular sports but both are valuable.
Sub editing skills.
Strong communication and team working skills.
Ability to work evenings and weekends.
A track record of writing headlines - particularly those that drive traffic from social media.

PLUS...
Contacts within the sports and media industries are an advantage.
A flair for analysis, research and great ideas.
Photoshop skills.
Journalism qualifications are preferred but not mandatory if writing standards are professional.
Experience running/managing social media channels

More senior candidates should have demonstrable team, budget and organisational experience, as well as experience of working with analytics and a good network of contacts within the industry.

If interested, please contact editor@givemesport.com  with a cover letter and copy of your CV.
