GRV Media is looking for football writers to join its Football Academy. 

We are looking for six trainee writers to cover Liverpool, Rangers, Celtic, West Ham, Newcastle United and Wolves. To be a candidate for one of these roles you will need to be a genuine fan of one of the clubs mentioned, and be able to demonstrate the ability to write accurate, creative and shareable content.

The Academy will run for an initial one-month period, with writers who demonstrate that they can add value being offered further writing, community engagement or social media opportunities within the GRV network.

This is a genuine opportunity for recent graduates and those looking for their first job in the industry. The main thing we are looking for are writers with fresh and engaging content ideas, in-depth knowledge about their club, and a passion for writing about football.

Writers will be expected to produce post-match coverage, so some evening hours may be necessary.

Founded in 2002, GRV Media is one of the UK's largest independent media companies with a network of sites focused mainly on sport, gaming and entertainment. GRV employs 120 staff and content producers. GRV and partner sites achieved 475 million page views in Q3 of 2021 from 305 million users.

GRV’s football sites include 67 Hail Hail, Rangers News, Hammers News, Rousing The Kop, Geordie Boot Boys and Molineux News.

Applicants should send their CV, a 250 word sample article and a cover letter to paul.watson@grv.media.
