The Port Melbourne Football Club is currently on the hunt for a Media Officer to provide social media content for their women’s team.
Established in 1874, the Port Melbourne Football Club is one of the oldest, proudest and most successful clubs in Australia who are currently on the hunt for a Media Officer to provide social media content for our women’s team.
By way of introduction, our women’s team are about to enter their second season participating in the AFL South-Eastern Division 1 competition, with an open intention to hopefully progress to obtaining a VFL Women’s licence in the future.
A vacancy has recently opened up for an enthusiastic, committed and self-driven individual looking to gain a head start on their career in the sports media industry by providing game day and in-week online content specifically for our women’s team.
Specific duties required in this role would be as follows:
– Provide regular and informative Facebook and Twitter coverage on our women’s match days throughout season 2019.
– Write articles on the personnel of our women’s team, such as player/coach/staff profiles and any other relevant stories that arise during the season.
– Assist the Administration and Digital Media Coordinator with any video/audio/written content the club is producing for their online platforms.
This role would primarily involve weekend work (i.e. women’s match days) and significant travel during the football season, with a small amount of commitment possibly also required on training nights if the opportunity arose.
Ideally, this would suit a current or recently-graduated tertiary student looking to gain valuable experience in the industry. All written work will be credited on the Port Melbourne FC website and social media platforms, providing a huge amount of external exposure for outstanding work.
A very small remuneration to cover travel costs may be provided to the successful candidate, but the club is placing a greater emphasis on enthusiasm and passion for the role in searching for a suitable employee.
To apply, please address a resume and covering letter to Sam Wharton via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Given the high expected volume of applications, only those successful for reaching the interview stage will be contacted.
