Work For Us

News Writer

Role title:
Stagedoor FM news writer

Role type:
Freelance [Paid]

Location:
National (work-from-home role)

Role description:
With a wealth of news stories, alongside new music, happening daily, we’re struggling to keep up with the demand of pushing new, relevant content to our readers. With that in mind, we’re looking for new contributors to our team who are proficient in reporting the latest in new specialist music (house, electronica, lo-fi, future-garage, bass, grime, soul, funk and global urban). You do not need to have a passion for all the aforementioned genres, however at least one or two are necessary.

Our readers tend to visit Stagedoor FM for new music and video content, versus purely news articles, so sourcing these stories must be essential.

Experience requirements:

  • At least 2+ years experience in writing for the online community
  • Strong contacts with labels, management and PR agencies
  • Ability to source and push exclusive content and new-music premieres
  • A personable approach to your writing style, and an ability to make readers feel welcomed into the article
  • Ability to keep to quick deadlines.
  • Understanding of the music scene – knowledge of the UK specialist/emerging scene and/or the global urban sphere
  • Proven experience in using WordPress/HTML for creating/editing content pieces
  • A self-starter with strong communication skills.
  • A strong social-media following is highly-preferred, however not essential

To apply:
Please email us with your CV, examples of previous work, rate expectations, your Twitter & Instagram profiles alongside a covering letter to newswriters@stagedoor.fm. Please include Stagedoor FM News Writer Role in the subject header.
