Do you want to work for the Back Post?

We’re about to head into the inaugural Victory League season and given the Statewide nature of the competition we would like to be able to cover all games live, staying true to what we have been able to provide in the past.

We see this as the vital service we provide the footballing community and as such we are seeking a reporter in Launceston to cover the games in that area of Tasmania.

Let me be up front in saying that we can’t offer you any compensation for your time and effort.

What we can offer is a good training ground for online journalism. Hopefully you will already be skilled in multi-tasking as you’ll be covering games on a live blog, Twitter and Facebook and you will also have a general level of video editing skill so as to record and edit post-match interviews. You may also like chargrilled chicken burgers and cold cans of Coke (we certainly do).

We’re willing to help train you up with all of the above.

We can offer interview opportunities with some of the big names in Australian football. In the past we have interviewed Graham Arnold, Les Murray, Kevin Muscat, Archie Thompson and Ange Postecoglou to name just a few.

We’ve covered A-League pre-season friendlies, A-League fixtures in Tasmania and every other major milestone in the past couple of years.

I am sure Julius Ross would certainly credit the Back Post as being a phenomenal way to train for the step up to providing online coverage for his current job with Melbourne Heart.

Who knows, there may even be a chance to cover a Melbourne Heart game in press box in Melbourne in the near future?

So if you are interested and serious about committing for the 2013 season please send us an email to or message us on Facebook or Twitter.

It is a big time commitment but if you’re an avid football fan and a budding journalist it might just be the perfect thing for your CV.
