Reading City Football Club is currently seeking keen photographers to provide coverage of both our First Team and Under-23s on matchdays as well as covering club events.
The role involves: -
Attending matches home and away
Capturing the atmosphere on match days.
Taking photos of the team for our publications.
Getting shots for social media use.
This is an unpaid, part-time role within our busy award-winning media department and therefore we have a requirement of some flexibility to work regular evenings and weekends, plus travel to away matches we appreciate that not everyone can commit to every game taking place on weekends/weeknights so we would welcome people to join us on an ad-hoc basis and attend games when available and/or when needed.
Travel can be provided therefore having a driving licence is not essential but would be beneficial.
Whilst it's a volunteer role it can potentially be a route into non-league [at a higher level] and possibly league clubs.
Your photographs will be used throughout our award-winning social media accounts and website but may also find their way into the local papers, other regional publications and various non-league football blogs.
This role would suit a recent school leaver and/or graduate looking to get into the world of football. It will also suit a keen photographer wanting to learn what it takes to be a club photographer and could lead to a wider career in action/agency photography.
No qualifications are required for this role but would be beneficial.
Photography experience is essential.
The successful applicant/s must have access to a camera of their own.
Successful applicants will need to demonstrate excellent communication skills, a confident manner, enthusiasm, organisation & professionalism and the ability to work independently.
Reading City Football Club is an equal opportunities employer and all applicants for employment will be regarded equally and will be given equal opportunities irrespective of sex, age, race, religion or belief, marriage or civil partnership, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity, ethnic or national origin.
These duties and responsibilities should be regarded as neither exclusive nor exhaustive and the post holder may be required to undertake other reasonably determined duties and responsibilities within Reading City Football Club, commensurate with the post without changing the character of the post.
If you’d like to discuss the role in more detail before applying please email our Media & Communications Manager, Ryan Sheehan at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have.
