About the job


Want to help shape the next generation of football reporting? Read on…

Who are we?

We’re global football, we’re culture, we’re the record-breaking transfer, we’re that stunning new kit launch. We’re the chat with your mates down the pub, the rant about that shocking decision (seriously… what were they thinking?!) and that shoulder to cry on.

We know what our users want, and we know before they even realise they need it in their lives. We’re emotion, we’re passion. We’re fun, we’re edgy. We feel. We care. We’re GOAL.

Okay, great, so what don’t we want?

We’re not just the 90 minutes. That tedious match report you read on those other sites? That’s not us. We’re not that dull main image you can barely see. We’re not clickbait, we’re not boring send-you-to-sleep stories that waffle on and on and never seem to end.

We’re not exclusion, we’re not sexist or discriminatory. To put it simply: Football is for everyone and if you don’t agree, this isn’t the role for you.

What would we need from you?

  • Write engaging copy for publication on GOAL
  • Sub-edit content to the highest possible standard

What about skills required?

  • Expert knowledge of football & Europe’s big-five leagues in particular
  • Ability to write emotive copy that makes our readers feel something
  • Proactively seek out & source the stories that matter
  • Determination to make a difference & attack each day with meaningful contributions
  • Creative eye for imagery (Photoshop desirable)

I’m in: What’s next? 🤗
