Work Experience

Fancy having your writing seen by the masses! Our sports news has been seen daily on google news, the BBC network and numerous newspapers. See here!

Footybunker is expanding it’s work experience program to include more sports writers and not just based on Football!

Whilst primarily based on football, we also provide news and opinion on Cricket, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Athletics, Formula One, Tennis, Snooker, Darts and Golf. On top of these popular sports we have also looked to branch out to the United States, opening sections on the NHL, NFL, NBA, MLB and the MLS.

Those wishing to experience online journalism will be provided feedback on each article submitted and shall learn the basics regarding structure, timing, headlining, as well as the development of column and feature style articles. Not only will the student find this experience beneficial and enjoyable but we have found that previous students have improved dramatically over the period which culminates in a written reference to be added to their curriculum vitae.

The experience period could cover your summer holidays or perhaps during term time where you are able to produce something in your free time.

Being an online based news site, you are able to carry out the work experience from the comfort of your own home or surroundings with each story submitted via e-mail where we then proof read and provide feedback prior to publishing. This method not only saves on travel expenses but also helps the student improve on a “per article” basis.

Another great benefit for the schools or colleges involved is that we also publish local match reports or stories on school events. Should the First XI cricket team make it to the county finals then why not write about it and have it published to the thousands of our readers? Has one of your students made superb progress on the athletics track that is worth telling the world about? Budding young journalists may even wish to provide a weekly match report of the school team and how they got on, or perhaps an injury to one of the main players has affected the season?

If the stories completed are accurate, not plagiarised, and score top marks in grammar and punctuation we very much guarantee to publish them – each story published will have the authors name or alias above the article.

Each work experience program lasts three months.

Should you wish to take a step into the world of sports journalism then we really do look forward to hearing from you and ask that you provide the following information when using our contact page.

1) Your name and contact details.
2) A brief description about yourself and your favourite sport.
3) An example of your work.
4) Your CV.

*Please note you will require a Skype account which is totally free. This helps with regards to training and communication.

Once we hear back from you we shall give you some pointers regarding your first article and will provide you with helpful feedback after each submission.

Please note that we can only provide full written references for those who provide at least ten articles during the experience. Reference’s are normally sent via e-mail in a pdf format so they can be printed however should you wish for us to send a hard copy via the post this can be arranged.

We look forward to hearing from you! Should you have any questions please do not hesitate in contacting us via the contact page.
