The Peoples Person is always looking to bring on more Manchester United fans who want to get involved. Here are the latest opportunities.
Freelance writers – CURRENTLY HIRING.
We are looking for two writers to join our news and transfers writing team. This will involve training for one week while you get used to the style and rhythm of the website and it will then be a paid position for both candidates. Start date will be immediate for training.
A successful candidate will be…
- Able to write accurate content to tight deadlines using The Peoples Person’s style guide as a template
- A Manchester United fan. We’re a fan website and we want to keep it that way
- Passionate about Manchester United
- Trained in journalism or have a background in writing
- Reliable and consistent with your work.
- Able to source and create content yourself
- Somebody who is keen to learn
Feature writers – CURRENTLY OPEN.
We love to hear what you have to say on current issues and topics which Manchester United fans are talking about right now. Do you want to write a piece on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer or a player we should be signing like Jadon Sancho?
So long as your content is well researched and well written, we welcome any contributions and will be happy to publish them to give your work a platform.
This is currently an unpaid position. This is more an opportunity for you to publish your own opinions.
Social media roles – NOT CURRENTLY HIRING.
With a Facebook page that has 2.2 million likes and a combined following of 75,000 followers on Twitter, plenty of reds follow The Peoples Person’s social accounts to keep up-to-date on everything Manchester United. We’re looking for somebody to help us take our social activity up to the next level with engaging content on Facebook and Twitter. From videos and pictures to stats, quotes and polls, there are lots of different ways of informing and engaging fans and we’d love to find somebody to help us provide that. This is currently an unpaid position but there is potential for it to turn into a paid role in the future.
