The SEPP Code
Self-Directed. Given initial instructions, can you complete a task on your own? Are you capable of taking the initiative to identify opportunities and take advantage of them, as well as solving problems when they appear? Are you a self-starter?
Exceptional. What you write / create for NewSigning.co.uk – is it the best it can be? Is it uniquely better than anything out there? Our goal is to provide high quality writing and resources to our readers, never to compromise on quality for profitability and to always ensure that we put in our best efforts when working on SoccerTransfers.net
Passionate / Professional. Yes, we’re football fans and we’re passionate about the game, but we’re also accountable to hundreds of thousands of football fans who read the site for the latest football news. That requires us to a) put personal preferences / biases aside and b) develop more balanced, rational opinions instead of giving in to our primal / tribal tendencies of defending our team against the rest of the world (or kicking Liverpool when they’re down, which is easier done then said – see what I did there? That’s not on).
Being professional is as important as being passionate about the game.
What Should You Write About?
Write about what moves you, what stirs your passion, what you feel deserves to be written about and given attention.
If you wish topics to be assigned to you, that can be done as well, just get in touch and we’ll take it from there!
