Write for COS

We are not currently hiring due to the current climate, but we welcome speculative applications and will review all applicants once we are in a position to expand the team.

To write for us you must:

  • Be a good wordsmith with high editorial standards.
  • Live and breathe football.
  • Have the creativity to make a story bang by digging out the juiciest details and writing an original, eye-popping headline.

Writers may also be asked to occasionally operate our social media channels (training will be given).

Because the internet is full of the same old stories repeated over and over, we need yours to be different.

Can you make the web a more fun and interesting place for football fans?

Are you a talented and passionate writer who is keen to forge a career as a football journalist?

Do you have the ambition to learn and develop online techniques to maximise the reach of your work and get it viewed by millions worldwide?

If you are coming up with three fat yeses then we want to hear from YOU!

To apply, send your CV to rob@caughtoffside.com with the subject line: “Write for COS”.

As part of your application, please send us three headlines and three opening sentences (no need to write the whole article, but you must grab our attention!) for stories you think would work well on CaughtOffside, including:

  • One short piece based on an Instagram post (include link to Instagram post).
  • A transfer-related news article based on a report from another website or newspaper (include link to original report).
  • An original feature article, list or opinion piece.

Roles are home-based with shifts generally ranging between four and eight hours in length.
