UPDATE: We have now stopped accepting applications, thank you for your interest in becoming part of this community.

Do you have a burning passion for Football Manager, are you a tactical whizzkid or do you just desperately want to share your knowledge with a community that cares? If you want to do all this, for a friendly, supportive website, with an average audience of around 50,000 page views per day and also get paid for your efforts, then read on!

Football Manager Story was established back in 2008 and we have grown year on year. We have bigger and better plans for the future, including the recruitment of specialist writers. Myself and Johnny can’t keep up with the continued growth unless we get help, so we need you. Below are the job vacancies available, amount of staff required and what we’ll expect.

As mentioned these positions are paid, but we will discuss those details only with the successful applicants. We want serious writers, dependable folks that will stick around.

We would like to fill all the positions below for FM15, but anyone wanting to try their hand in writing about FM14 is more than welcome.

Tactics Expert(s)

Number of vacancies: 3

Description: You’ll be responsible for writing tactical posts. These can vary from tactical guides, to analysis of a tactic or creation of a tactic for the community to download.

Requirements: Each author would be expected to write at least two posts per month. These posts would need to be high quality, whether that is a tactic download that the community can enjoy (these must be presented well, not just a download link) or a thought provoking piece of analysis.

Community Reporter

Number of vacancies: 1

Description: This role requires you to write a monthly round up of the FM scene, highlighting the best posts from other sites, blogs and forums. We would also require download posts, so posts sharing links for logo packs, kits and databases etc from around the scene.

Requirements: One monthly community report and posts whenever necessary sharing downloads from the scene (most likely one or two a month depending.)

Team Guide Creator(s)

Number of vacancies: 3

Description: The title says it all, you should write high quality and detailed guides for specific clubs, countries and leagues. You are not restricted to that though if you want to expand past those boundaries to another form of guide.

Requirements: Each author should write at least two posts per month. Again we do look for high quality content.

How To Apply

Simply send us an email to and (please email both if possible) with the following:

  • Your name and any relevant details.
  • A bit about yourself.
  • Attach a word document stating your ideas, basically your letter of intent.
  • If you have written online before, even if just in a forum, links would help with your application.

There is no real cut off point, but beware this is a first come first serve basis. We will continue to look to fill these positions until the right applicant comes along, but once they are gone they are gone. Look forward to hearing from you all soon and remember, anyone can apply.

Paid positions eh? Maybe time for a comeback on FMS :)

Johnny Karp

Why not? You’d surely be one of the top candidates :)

John Gallagher

I would be interested in the team guide creator post, but I’m not going to waste tour time applying as I doubt I would have the long term commitment. But its great to see the site taking this leap and and continuing to improve what is already a great site and my first stop for anything FM related.

Johnny Karp

Thanks John, we hope this move will eventually produce better content for our readers.

Chai Chien Liang

Good to see the site making the effort to get more content on board!

Just remembered that I use to write team guides for at fmformation for fun, but they’re no longer up now (it was for FM2011), I like their format for team guides!

Conor Donovan

The team guide one would suit me, I think.

Ronan Donovan

I’d definitely be interested in this. The team guide one really appeals to me too

Gaurav Chaddah

I like a lot of others fancy the team guide one too, seems like a lot of competition for that role ;)


When can we expect decisions to be made about the roles?

John Martin

Well I really wanted to apply but time constrates meant otherwise but good luck to everyone that applies! Anyways just wondering when the applicants will be announced? Maybe you could do a introductory post introducing all the new writers, just a idea

Ollie Poole-Cowley

Hi there John, I’m one of the new writers here. I’ll be filling the role of tactical expert. I’m not sure if there are plans for an introductory post, but so far me and and Rhys, a team guide specialist, have written our first posts and introduced ourselves a little in them.

Johnny Karp

We’ll have a page with all the authors in the team, we still haven’t filled all the seven positions yet.
