JRFC seek media intern23/07/2013
Jersey Rugby Football Club is seeking a Media Intern for the
2013/14 season as the club looks to flourish off the field as well
as on it. The role will give the successful applicant the
opportunity to work within the professional sporting environment of
a Greene King IPA Championship Club for an eight to twelve month
The position will give the chosen intern an opportunity to experience life in a fast-moving industry and would ideally suit a student looking to fill a long-term work placement, or a recent graduate looking to break into sports journalism.
Duties will include:
* Writing copy and helping to produce the new Jersey RFC match day programme, official website and all commercial and marketing literature
* Assisting the Communications Department with the external press and co-ordinating press conferences/days
* Assisting the Commercial and Media Managers during the week and on match days
* General PR and Marketing administration
The suitable candidate will possess excellent writing skills, strong IT competencies, a good eye for detail and have the ability to work under pressure to meet tight deadlines. Experience in journalism and/or producing publications would be beneficial, and knowledge of Jersey Rugby Football Club and rugby union in general is preferable, but by no means essential.
The role will involve working at weekends and some unsocial hours.
This is an excellent opportunity to build a significant portfolio in journalism, as well as working in a quickly growing and ambitious professional sporting club looking to raise its profile.
Applicants must have a five-year Jersey residential qualification. To apply, send a covering letter and CV to Commercial & Marketing Manager Gareth Alred at the address or email below (closing date Friday 09/08/13):
