When not leading tabletop campaigns or directing digital divisions, are you often to be found tapping away at your latest mobile game obsession, or maximising those gaming hours with mammoth Switch sessions? If so, then do we have an opportunity for you: our sister website Pocket Tactics – the world’s number one mobile games site – is seeking two new staff writers!

Since relaunching in March 2020, Pocket Tactics has grown massively and they’re only getting bigger. As such, they’re looking to grow the editorial team by bringing on talented new writers, capable of turning out top-quality guides, news, reviews, and other tailored content for their mobile and Switch gaming audience, to tight deadlines.

These are entry-level positions, but it’s still vital to know your writing skills are up to the task – so it’s essential you have some published work to show (even if it’s just on your personal blog). The most important requirement is that you know, and can write about videogames – from the latest premium or triple-A title, to the giants of the free-to-play mobile world.
