Ummmm, no. How about you're flexible so your employees can live their lives and not be slaves to a corporation. This is the first thing I ask about in any interview. Don't respect a good work/life balance, then go suck an egg.

yet...: "1- 3 years experience working for a team, league or related company"

The old "can't get experience without experience" conundrum
Yeah that sucks, so I guess they will get someone under 30. But the other good thing I hope the means s we are getting our own press group.

You work hard, you get promoted and you make more money. You get out of this life, work included, what you put into it.

I'd love to apply (and actually would be a fantastic fit for it).

But I'm pretty sure after my commentary on the club's connection with Manchester both here and on Twitter, that'd get a solid:

If the guys in Manchester are anything to go after it´s very much about live updating on twitter and club sites during games and handling club related websites.
No reason not to apply Dr Hoosier :cool:

I think it's half that and half doing things like City Today, so not just sitting in front of a laptop all day.

They may ask you to do some unusual hours but they won't ask you to do it on top of your usual shift. If they have you staying up until midnight one night, you can expect that they'll allow you to casually roll in at 2pm the next day. Honestly, I'd quite enjoy a job with irregular hours like that, especially since you'll spend so much of your time in the company of the actual players and management.

You are overreacting, that's a pretty generic note on a job listing. You are not going to have a normal 9-5 working for a sports team.
