Similar to Wolves, we’re on the lookout for new and exciting talent to be part of The Fancast.
Like many football clubs this summer, we’re looking for those certain people who have the characteristics needed to make our award winning production even better. Alongside our podcasts, we are looking to raise the profile of our blog and video content on Youtube.
Writing and creating videos for Wolves Fancast can give you the opportunity to learn and gain experience in blogging/online journalism and video production, or simply a creative outlet for your thoughts on Wolves. If you’re at school, college or University, contributing to Wolves Fancast can be a good addition on your CV and give you a chance to build a portfolio of work which you can provide to future employers.
Interested in Writing about Wolves?
Those who currently or have previously written for Wolves Fancast have gone on to write for the Birmingham Mail, Express and Star and Four Four Two Magazine to name but a few. So if you like putting pen to paper or keyboard to Microsoft Word in this case, then this might be right up your street.
You don’t need experience to write for us. However the first piece you write might need to be a sample if you don’t have a background in writing (such as studying at university or working in PR/marketing), but we’ll always try and give feedback where possible.
We would always welcome your ideas, but we are always on hand for content suggestions, providing a different take in a post match analysis or looking back at past moments in the clubs history.
Interest in Producing Videos about Wolves?
We’ve really enjoyed putting together videos in the first half of the season but we want to do more!
We are looking for people who can edit videos as well as people with content ideas they are happy to present. We will provide feedback and production ideas/tips to keep the tone of Wolves Fancast consistent across content and platforms.
You will have to provide your own equipment at least at first, however we always look to invest in our team when we can.
Similar to writing, you don’t need experience but it is more preferential for being part of our Youtube team.
Do I get paid?
This is voluntary. You do it for the love of Wolves!
What is it like being part of Wolves Fancast?
Just take a read from some of our current and former participants…
Richard Hobbs – Fancast Pundit and writer:
“I joined the Fancast bus this summer after finishing University. I really enjoy it. Everyone was welcoming. Following some blogs I wrote for the website that got a lot of attention, Fancast suggested that I go for the ‘Best New Blogger Award’ in the Football Blogging Awards 2014. I’m fairly modest when it comes to my writing, so when I made it onto the final shortlist, you can imagine how thrilled I was. On top of my award, writing for the Fancast has also lead on to me writing a column in print on the Monday after a Wolves game for the Express and Star. What started as a hobby after finishing my degree has turned into something I’m truly passionate about and the Fancast has been a catalyst for it. I’d thoroughly recommend anyone taking part in the Fancast, whether it’s on the show or online as everyone has the aim; to promote our passion for the boys in Gold and Black.”
Charlie Meyler – Former Fancast Pundit and writer:
“Being a part of the Fancast has quite simply given me the passion and drive to become a journalist. It gave me an idea of what I wanted to do as a career. The opportunities I have had have been unforgettable – meeting journalists, having work you wrote looked at by people in the footballing world, being in regular contact with FourFourTwo magazine and most importantly, making some great friends along the way. The Fancast is unique and to be a part of it was something I consider to be very special. I would urge you to get involved, even if journalism isn’t a career you don’t want to go down but just want a platform to express your opinion about the club we all love so dearly then the Fancast is unequivocally the place to be.”
