What is Fresh Press Media?

We’re an online content publishing house. We produce a large variety of unique, professional content across our online platforms daily, distributing it to readers within our own internal website networks, Read Everything and Grid, as well as providing it for use to other companies.

Our Alumni

For those looking to get into the sports media industry, university is great for learning the basics and meeting likeminded people - I think it's an important experience, but the future is in digital and social, and that's not something that a sports journalism course will prepare you for. Fresh Press will. As soon as I became en editor of one of the sites, I began to understand what content truly works on a social web, and how to manage a team of people. Those two skills are now crucial in my job as Sport Campaign Lead at The Goat Agency, a job I landed thanks to the contacts and expertise I gained at Fresh Press. I'm now leading social campaigns for the likes of Chelsea FC, Unibet and lots more.

Ben Smith - Sport Campaign Lead at The GOAT Agency

Without working for Fresh Press, there's no way I'd be in the position I am now as part of the social media team at Squawka. The fact that Fresh Press is now a recognised name in the sports journalism world gave me a head start and the added responsibility of immediately being in charge of the social media channels enabled me to quickly learn best practises in terms of understanding not only how to conduct yourself and grow the channels, but also how to engage with the existing audience. Fresh Press also provide an incredible team of experienced people who will help you to understand the targets and strategy along the way.

Adam Hamdani - Social Media Content Producer at Squawka

Fresh Press provided me with a platform to showcase my work to a larger audience, and I credit a large proportion of the paid opportunities that I've had since to that initial work experience. The excellent support network provided, together with some slick website features and access to Getty Images make it a smart first step for any budding journalist looking to get noticed.

Patrick Boyland - Freelance Journalist and Radio Broadcaster

Fresh Press helped me out tremendously. They helped me get my work out there to a large audience of people, learn key skills in the industry, and allow me a whole host of opportunities such as appearing on Ball Street, that helped stand me in good stead for a full-time paid writing role without going to University. Fresh Press is the perfect platform for anyone aspiring to get into journalism.

Josh Lawless - Writer at Sport Bible

Fresh Press has provided me with a fantastic platform to not only express my views and opinions as a journalist but has also allowed me to network and create professional relationships with others in the industry. They have been a key part of my development as a journalist as well as handing me a fantastic base to kick start my career from.

Ryan Darby - Content Executive at Fresh Press Media

Starting out as a simple blogger, Fresh Press gave me the opportunity to spearhead a brand new project with The Irons Circle (which later became Read West Ham) which gave me an opportunity to really curate and mould something of my own and grow it into something substantial. Within a year, it had became the most-read West Ham fan site on the internet. Clearly, this made a lasting impression as I was brought on board as a full-time member of staff as the network began to grow. In the two and a half years I've spent as part of the community here at Fresh Press, I've learned to tailor my writing specifically to how the audience wants it, while also being able to shape my work to make it the most appealing on social media. Fresh Press have provided me with opportunities to attend VIP events with West Ham and work closely with the club on a number of promotions which have given me experiences I'll never forget.

Michael Oliver - Senior Content Executive at Fresh Press Media

Working at Fresh Press gave me a great understanding of how to use social media as a promotion tool and I’ve taken that understanding into my current role. I learned a lot on how to engage with users as well as some useful tips in terms of what and what not to do on social media. I now use all of the things I learned at Fresh Press in my daily work, so I am thankful for the time and effort the team there put in to help me.

Ashley Thornton-Jones - Social Media Manager at Ten10 Talent

Since writing for Fresh Press, I've developed my writing skills and have refined my ability as a budding sports journalist. The help I've received regarding how to improve the way I write and the people I have worked with have been fantastic for me and I'd recommend Fresh Press to anyone who is hoping to get their name out there and push into the industry. It's the best platform and working environment you could wish for. The fact that I went from a blogger to a paid position just shows the development opportunities that are on offer.
