Programme Editor Vacancy at Blyth Spartans

Following Craig Dobson’s departure at the end of the recent campaign, Blyth Spartans are looking for a new voluntary programme editor for next season.

Craig enjoyed a successful season producing last year’s official matchday magazine and even continued his role despite moving to Manchester back in January, but he has stepped down from his role in order to focus on his marketing job at the National Football Museum.

The out-going programme editor – who also worked on Radio Blyth Live prior to Christmas – is the latest member of the club’s award-winning media team that have gone on to enjoy accomplished careers in the media industry, so the successful applicant will be joining a thriving and supportive setup. Therefore, this is the perfect position for someone who is looking to get into a media career and/or has a keen interest in football.

This role requires excellent writing and proofreading skills, good attention to detail and the ability to hit deadlines. While there are compulsory aspects that have to be included, there is the scope to include anything else Spartans-related that you feel would help build up your portfolio – as the club makes a return to the Vanarama National League North next season.

Should you wish to apply for the role, please send a CV and cover letter – as well as any written/publishing work that you have been responsible for – to general manager Ian Evans at
