Network N

Location: Bath, UK

Application deadline: 8th June, 2018

Network N are looking for a Staff Writer to join their flagship website, PCGamesN. You will be part of a dynamic, rapidly-growing media team based in Bath.

You’ll be able to turn out exceptional copy to tight deadlines, turn your hand to various styles of writing – including news, features, guides, and scripts – you will have at least some experience working in a busy office environment, and you will have no qualms about using Oxford commas. 

You’ll be passionate about videogames and the videogame industry, and you’ll have plenty to say about both – whether that’s in a rapidly-produced op-ed in response to an event that day, or an in-depth, well-researched feature. This role will offer you the chance to join a talented, dedicated team, and work with some of the best content producers in the business.

Responsibilities include:

  • News, feature, and review writing
  • Conducting interviews
  • Building and maintaining industry relationships
  • Representing PCGamesN at events
  • YouTube scripting, gameplay capture, and presenting
  • CMS work, transcription, and lots of other fun things

Required skills and experience:

  • The ability to write brilliantly, quickly, and to task across a range of disciplines
  • A keen interest in videogames and a good knowledge of them
  • Experience writing and pitching articles
  • Proficiency with basic working tools: docs, sheets, PCs, that kind of thing
  • Proactivity, attention to detail, and excellent organisation
  • Previous CMS experience
  • If you haven’t got a Steam account, you should probably forget it

Desirable skills and experience:

  • Published work somewhere or other, ideally online
  • Basic image and/or video editing skills
  • Previous work on a magazine or website, your own blog, or you’re an insanely busy commenter
  • Understanding of SEO best practices

To apply please send a CV and covering letter to editor Ben Maxwell ([email protected]), using the subject line “Staff Writer application”. We’d also like to see previous examples of your written work.
