‘That was liquid football!’: sports editor wanted

We’re looking to expand our sports coverage next year. Think you can help?


Do you want to give sport at Bristol the high profile it deserves?

We’re looking for a sports editor to join our team.

Bristol is fortunate enough to have some of the most successful sports teams in the country. From Team GB athletes to rugby World Cup winners, our university has been a stepping stone on the way to success for many athletes. However, not a lot of students are aware of this.

It’s our job to highlight the massive achievements of our sportsmen and women. It could be yours too.

You might be a sports team captain, social secretary, or just an avid sports fan. Whoever you are, we want to hear your ideas on how we can give Bristol the sports coverage it deserves.

If you’re interested, email [email protected] and say hi. We’ll get back in touch.

What The Tab can do for you

“The Tab was an excellent springboard to get into journalism professionally. It gave me a foundation of training, improved my news sense and sparked my enthusiasm for journalism in general. It gave me the initial experience I needed to get local work experience, which led to national work experience. I would not have got my place on the Journalism course at City if it was not for my involvement with The Tab” 

Sanya Burgess, The Daily Mail and The Sunday Times and former Tab News Editor

“Putting The Tab on my CV instantly made me stand out from the masses of other wannabe journalists – it has a profile and people know that Tab writers have a spark to them. Editors at national newspapers are intrigued by its slightly anarchic spirit – no one in the real media cares about pieces regurgitating student union motions, but they care about Tab investigations and its get-out-there-and-do-something journalism.”

Phoebe Luckhurst, Features Writer, Evening Standard and former Tab Editor
