You’ll be a one-person sports team, among an editorial team of experienced journalists, covering everything from representative rugby and netball, right down to primary school’s football and hockey.

The Guardian is a progressive, six-day a week newspaper in the heart of a sporting strong hold.

Our sports coverage is one of the cornerstones of the business.
