  • Analyse various pieces of content regularly and provide informative analysis on articles to optimise the editorial strategy.
  • Build a dynamic editorial team to drive the editorial strategy.
  • Keep up to date with the rapidly evolving landscape in Esports.
  • Plan and assist in execution of event coverage production teams and bespoke content.

  • Excellent communication, oral and written skills.
  • A general knowledge of the Esports media publishing rules and regulations.
  • Strong passion for Esports and gaming in general.
  • Ability to work independently with minimum supervision, but also able to work well within a team and to continuously optimise the editorial strategy.

  • Openly able to travel, such as attending events for the business.
  • Be flexible with working hours and potentially to provide coverage on weekends and evenings whenever the Esports calendar requires.
