CIoJ student members can develop their portfolios by taking up an unpaid – but with expenses – media internship kindly offered by Swindon Rugby Football Club.

The Club is offering the opportunity to write press releases for local and national media, web and social media sites; write articles for match programmes and provide match reports for local and national press. There is also a chance to write and offer articles on the clubs community work and youth successes.

The Club operates as a not for profit community sports organisation which fields three senior squads. Its first team is currently in the Dorset & Wiltshire South West League – South West East and it would be a great opportunity to build contacts for anyone locally who wants to work in sport journalism or simply looking to build up their CV.

If you are interested in finding out more details please contact Rob Duggan on 01793 734 101 or mail for more information.
