Network N announces its New Journalist Intake Scheme: we're hiring for SIX staff writers across our owned sites

By Admin 06 Jul 2020 0

Network N is pleased to announce the creation of six new vacancies within its publishing division. We’re looking to hire writers who want to make a start within games media, and who are excited to work across the Network N brands. Applications for the scheme are open from today - see below for how to apply.

Our editorial sites include PCGamesN, The Loadout, Pocket Tactics, Strategy Gamer, and Wargamer, and reach over 12 million people each month. We’re seeking gaming enthusiasts and talented writers who are going to be able to make them all bigger and better.

Arriving as a cohort, successful applicants will receive on the job training from our existing editorial teams, and will be able to rapidly develop their knowledge and abilities. During your first three months you’ll do placements across various brands and departments, allowing you to understand the different aspects of what we do, and giving you a wide range of skills to help you progress. Upon successful completion of the probationary period, we’ll look to place you full-time into one of our teams.

These are remote working roles - you can be based anywhere in the UK and you will be asked to work our standard hours: 9:30am-5:30pm (GMT/BST).

We strongly encourage a diverse range of applicants, and no previous experience is necessary - although ideally you’ll have some existing writing you can show us, even if it’s just on your own blog.

You do need to know videogames, though. If you’re interested in applying, please send the following to

  • Your CV
  • A short covering letter explaining why you’d be a great fit
  • A 400-500 word news story that would suit one of our sites (and ideally let us know which one!)

Applications will close on the 31st July 2020. Interviews will be conducted during August, and we’re looking to have everyone in place in early September, so please make sure you’re available to start then.

As well as the chance to get into games media and work on one of our brands, Network N also offers:

  • £20,000 starting salary
  • 28 days holiday
  • Auto-enrolment pension
  • Profit share scheme for all
  • EMI scheme (after one year of service)
  • Perkbox subscription
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Techscheme
  • Cyclescheme
  • Staff social events, including Christmas & summer parties (COVID-permitting)

Network N is also committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.

Good luck!
