Reporting to our Entertainment Editor, we’re looking for a standout candidate who can focus on the biggest sporting personalities, rather than covering specific games themselves. 

The ideal candidate will have detailed knowledge of writing about major sports stars for an American audience, from Steph Curry to Simone Biles, Patrick Mahomes to Megan Rapinoe.

The candidate will be responsible for ensuring high-quality coverage that is accurate, fair, and conforms to accepted standards of journalism.

Our office is based in London but we are definitely open to the potential of working from home.

Key Responsibilities

  • Scour multiple social media for stories and emerging trends
  • Pitch and write several news stories each day
