Hi, we need a writer for our upcoming application about football statistics of the major football leagues around the world. We are looking for real football fans who can handle social media pages (mainly) with short, incisive and engaging posts. Occasionally, we will ask you to write short blogs.
1- Manage the football blog and make posts about the hot football news. In particular, we would like the candidate to analyze different kinds of statistics (which will be provided).
2- Manage Facebook and Twitter pages and make short and incisive posts to get the audience interested.
Please go through the following requirements very carefully. In your application, you must demonstrate how you meet these requirements, otherwise your application won't be entertained:
1- Command over English language - You must be able to freely express your ideas and thoughts in English without any grammatical, structural or lexical errors. If you have written in the past, please let us know what it was about and how did you approach that kind of writing in particular.
2- Football Knowledge - No matter how good you are in requirement 1, if you don't have a craze for football, you will not make an ideal candidate. We need someone who loves what he is doing. In particular, we need the ideal candidate to have the knowledge about the top 5 European leagues of the world. In your application, please mention who your favorite teams and players are and why.
These requirements are not must-haves. However, they will provide you an edge over other candidates:
1- Sense of humor - We all like to have a good laugh at times. Statistics can be pretty boring, so we would like you to add a good touch of humor.
2- Creativity - This is not a routine job. We would not give you any topic to write on. You will have to come up with your own topics which you think are worth igniting a discussion about. The more creative you are, the better candidate you will make
Nature of Work:
This would all be on-line work. You will have to be online on Saturday and Sunday evenings to manage both the blog and social media pages. Other than that you will have to be online on weekdays if there are relevant matches going on (such as Champions League).
Apart from that you will be responsible for make occasional posts on the blog and keep it live.
Thank you for your interest!
