Sporting Eric is a content marketing agency focused on health, fitness and sport. We tell stories that make people listen, in the format that meets the audience needs, whether it’s written, video, animation or audio. Our clients span the world of healthcare, golf, rugby and cricket.
About the role
We’re looking for someone with at least three years’ experience in an editorial role with a focus on health, fitness and sport.
You will be working primarily on our health care account, creating content – from long-form thought leadership to articles and listicles to video and animation storyboards – around health and well-being, aimed at both a B2B and B2C audience.
As part of Sporting Eric, you’ll also be involved in other projects including new business pitches and writing for our other golf, cricket and rugby platforms, including Rugby Journal.
- You must have excellent writing skills, an ability to turn around quality copy quickly and on brief, and also be able to switch between topics quickly.
- A good knowledge of health and fitness and related topics is essential, including the areas that relate to workplace wellness.
- Social media experience is also key. Not only will you be creating content for various social platforms, you’ll also be managing some of Sporting Eric’s owned channels.
- Client experience is preferred, but not essential as our primary role will be working on our global healthcare account, writing about mental and physical health and well-being across multiple platforms.
- Bursting with ideas. You’ll be expected to generate ideas, write and commission content, as well as contribute to new business pitches.
- Good working knowledge of InDesign.
- A passion for and knowledge of the sport industry – in particular golf, rugby and cricket – and the brands associated to it.
