Accrington Stanley are looking for aspiring sports journalists, students and graduates to volunteer in the club’s media department for 2015/16.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to the club’s various media platforms including programme, website and social media as well as build up a portfolio of work and all important contacts within the industry.

The volunteers will need to be available for the new Football League season from August 2015.

Previous beneficiaries of this scheme have gone on to work in football club press offices as well as for local and national media covering football, making this a great stepping stone for those looking for a career in sports journalism.

We are looking for a range of people across a broad spectrum of skill sets, including to work with video, pictures, audio and the written word.

If you are based a long way from Accrington this is not necessarily a stumbling block; in the past volunteers based away from Lancashire have been invaluable in contributing to publications and covering matches.
