Here at The Tilehurst End, we’re into our eighth year of providing as well-rounded a coverage of all things Reading FC as we can possibly muster. To continue growing and offering a fans’ view on all things Royals, we’re advertising a variety of ways for you to get involved.
Who should apply?
Are you a Reading fan? Then you’re qualified. For budding journalists in college or university looking to fill free periods and learn the trade, helping edit the website is right up your street. You’ll be working alongside experienced journalists who can help you kickstart a great career, with our team having contributed to Sky Sports, FourFourTwo, The Sun, FIFA.com, Football.London, La Gazzetta dello Sport and more.
If you’re a fan who’s a bit older or works 9-5, has always fancied themselves as a creative type or has never even logged onto the internet before (in which case well done on finding this article) - then there’s absolutely a place for you as well!
What’s on offer?
We are looking for Reading supporters who are committed and creative. There are three different roles on offer (don’t worry, you can apply for more than one!).
Website assistant editor: Our website is the focal point of TTE and we are looking to fill senior position(s) on the editing team. This will involve writing news and feature articles, coming up with ideas for stories, editing and publishing copy from our writing team, and posting to our social media pages.
Video producer: TTE’s YouTube channel has been up and running for a number of years and has a healthy audience primed for game reaction, analysis and any kind of Reading related video you can think of. We want someone to make it their own and provide regular content under our banner.
Writer: We’re always on the lookout for ideas on how to cover Reading. Any feature or opinion article you have in mind, get in touch. We’ve never turned down a good piece of writing that is well-argued and thoughtful. In addition to one-offs, we have plenty of weekly and monthly articles ready for someone to take charge of.
How do I apply?
Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org, putting the role you are interested in in the subject line. If you are keen on website editing or writing, please write a couple of paragraphs about yourself and why you’re interested. For video producers, include a 20-30 second piece to camera of yourself talking literally anything about Reading.
We look forward to hearing from you!
