Brick Fanatics is looking for a new writer

Brick Fanatics is looking to boost its writing team with a new addition in a part-time, paid role, for someone based in the UK or US.

As we continue to expand our audience and content, we’re also expanding our writing team with a newly-created paid position. The role will consist of working several shifts across each week. For a UK-based writer, this would total eight hours per week across four evenings, but for a US-based writer, this would begin at 20 hours per week across five days. Salary is competitive and disclosed upon point of application.

You’ll ideally have qualifications and/or experience in journalism, writing or similar, alongside a deep passion for all things LEGO. You don’t need a huge collection, but you do need some knowledge of both the LEGO Group and its products. You will predominantly be writing news and feature coverage across all aspects of LEGO and the LEGO Group, so a good news sense is key.

Brick Fanatics has established itself as one of the leading providers of news, reviews and feature coverage on all things LEGO, with high editorial standards and a reputation for accuracy and insight. A passion for this, a love of the English language, a professional drive, an ambition to develop new and potentially cross-platform skills, and a flair for creativity are things we’d love to see.

Reliability and professionalism are also important, because even though it seems like we’re a group of adults who sit around all day playing with LEGO, we’re actually a group of adults who sit around all day playing with LEGO, reliably and professionally. It’s a fun job, but it’s still a job that requires dedication, passion and efficiency.

Given the hours required, this would be an ideal role for someone looking to initially boost their income with part-time work, but you will need full availability for the hours requested of you, and these will include working weekends. For a US-based writer, the role has the potential to expand.

UPDATE: Applications for this position are now closed. We will be replying to every candidate who applied in due course – thank you all for the interest in the role!

You would be working alongside Chris, Jack and Rob in the role. Applications will close February 22 (extended to give prospective candidates fair time to apply) – any that come in after this date won’t be considered.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
