Scotzine: We are expanding! Scottish Football needs you!


Whether you are looking for a career in football/sports journalism or just want a chance to share your thoughts about your favourite team, a league or the game in general, there are plenty of opportunities available with Scotzine.com.

We are an equal opportunity employer, we do not care about your religion, race or sexuality. As long as you as passionate about the game as we are then you have a great chance to become part of our team.

Prospective candidates will have to provide sample material so that we can check out what you can do and what you can bring to the team. We will also expect to see that you can demonstrate and also share our passion for the work that we do whether it is the men’s game or the women’s game in Scotland.

After six years of hard slog and obsessive-filled days, Scotzine is now slowly but surely becoming seen as a recognised media outlet in the Scottish game. We have secured media access to SPL league matches, SFL league and cup matches, Junior games, plus we are working in partnership with Scottish Women’s Football and the Scottish FA in promoting the women’s game.

Our photographers and match reporters come from places all over Scotland and travel to games from the top flight to the lower leagues. It doesn’t matter where you are based, we are looking for contributors from all across Scotland.

If you are interested in any of the positions below then get in touch by emailing us at editor@scotzine.com. Don’t forget to send samples of your work. No emails of interest will be replied too if samples are not included.

Match reporters

We are looking for contributors to attend games each week providing Scotzine with match reports and interviewing players & managers post-match.

As a Scotzine match reporter, you could be covering SPL games or SFL games. Junior games or even Women’s football games.

Feature Writers

Scotzine Feature writers are those who will tackle any subject within Football with no ties to any specific league. But are opinionated and have something to say.

All Writers will be required to contribute at least ONE article to our monthly magazine. On their specific subjects.


At present we have a small pool of dedicated match photographer. Because of the number of games that are on a weekly basis, they cannot cover them all, so we are looking for Photographers who are looking to build up their portfolio by covering games up and down the country.

The position is voluntary only, however we can provide access to football grounds across the country for you to build your portfolio with and to provide Scotzine.com with Match Photos. The images would stay copyrighted to yourself, however Scotzine can use said images for any aspect of our website.

We do not provide the necessary equipment needed to do this role, so you must have the appropriate professional equipment. Along with your email you must tell us the type of equipment you have, so that we can verify that it’s not run of the mill digital cameras that folk take out on a night out.


ScotzineTV as it sounds is our very own TV Channel. We are looking for Video crews along with two individuals to present/interview for our Channel online. This is a voluntary position, and may be best suited to students or those just graduated [interested in Football]looking to gain valuable experience for their CV & Portfolio.

This role would involve interviewing players, managers & fans as well as producing highlights of games we attend, and a Vidcast show we are planning also.

The Video crew will need to have the relevant video equipment and software at their disposal – we cannot provide this currently.

  • Video crews we will need some sample work.
  • For Presenters/Interviewers positions we will need not only a CV, but also some headshots as well as ‘on screen tests’. These tests will be arranged at a later date.

The Final Whistle

Scotzine produce The Final Whistle Scottish football show in conjunction with PULSE 98.4FM in Barrhead. We are on the look out for new members to join our team regularly and of course those interested in coming along as guests.

The show is one hour long and is aired on both the Scotzine website, but also on PULSE 98.4FM. We are looking into the new schedule of when we can record the show, however we will kick it off again before the new season starts.
