News Editor - Eurosport

London, UK

We are looking for a sports news editor to join Eurosport UK’s digital team on a fixed term contract for 12 months.

Reporting into the head of digital for Eurosport UK, this role will help drive Eurosport’s editorial coverage of a range of sports across its digital platforms. The news editor will create content and manage the site on some evenings as part of the rotation within the team. This is intended as a written content role although some basic video editing will be required on occasions.

The successful candidate will have a strong working knowledge of football and be able to demonstrate a track record in creating impactful content during their journalistic career. Knowledge of tennis, cycling, Olympic sports and snooker is also desirable in line with some of Eurosport’s key rights and editorial offerings.

We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about sport, confident managing freelancers, knows how to spot, cover and develop a story, and has strong awareness of digital trends and the sporting landscape. This opportunity is also a fantastic chance to join the Eurosport team and be a key player in our coverage of the Tokyo Olympics, as official broadcasters.

Under normal circumstances this position would be part of the Eurosport UK digital team at our company headquarters in Chiswick, West London. But it can be performed remotely. Evening and weekend work is to be expected as part of a team which covers sport seven days a week, across 16 hours each day.
