Can you create a range of content that fans want to read, debate, watch and share?

Our audiences are growing rapidly online and we are investing in our teams to develop our top brands across the North West, including The Lancashire Post, Burnley Express, Blackpool Gazette and Wigan Post.

We are now looking to expand our sports team with passionate journalists that have an encyclopedic knowledge of sport. Based in our Preston office, you will support coverage on our core clubs such as Preston North End, Burnley, Blackpool, Fleetwood Town and Wigan Athletic - as well as helping us reach new audiences.

You'll need to create high-quality copy, write compelling headlines that work for social or search and use different article formats to make the most of the stories you're working on.

But the most important thing you will be doing is connecting with our audiences through subjects that they can't help but want to read.

What we are looking for:
- Passionate and committed to serve our audience
- Hungry to learn and be successful
- Open to new ideas and change
- Demonstrable, in-depth knowledge of sport
- Understand the importance of meeting audience needs, wishes and aspirations
- Able to work cooperatively with others in order to achieve objectives
- Enthusiastic about online news, sport and social media
- Flexible, personable, and solutions oriented attitude
- Demonstrable copywriting experience with attention to detail and accuracy
- Ability to use analytics tools to inform content decisions
- Ability to respond well under pressure and working to targets
