Hiring: Sports Writers

We’re looking for writers who are passionate about raising the profile of university sport. Sound like you?


Are you passionate about raising the profile of sport at Bristol University? Feel the university teams aren’t getting enough recognition?

We’re hoping to vastly expand our Sports section this year with more match reports, game previews, team profiles and player interviews than any other student publication. Bristol has a fantastic sporting pedigree which is often overlooked. We want to change that.

To do all this, we need more dedicated writers for the Sports section. If you’re an aspiring sports journalist, or a team captain who’d like to help promote their club, we want to hear from you.

Writing for the Tab not only looks great on your CV but allows you access to resources other student papers just don’t have. If that’s not enough, we also have a strong working relationship with UBTV Sport, allowing our writers to gain experience both in front and behind of the camera should they wish to.

Interested applicants should email [email protected] with the subject line Sports Writer. In your application please answer the following questions:

  • What aspects of university sport would you like to cover?
  • What would you improve about the coverage of university sport?

Deadline for applications is the 31st January.
