Looking for something in the CQ? Creative Quarter?


Personal Financial Copywriter

This is an exciting opportunity to work for a sector-leading agency. If you’re a talented writer, and you've got experience in writing about personal finance or have an interest in the subject, we want to hear from you.

On any given day, you’ll be:

Crafting beautifully written and engaging pieces of content (both short and long)

Understanding complex financial subjects and explaining them clearly and simply

Selecting relevant issues to write about through research and awareness of topical financial matters

Managing a newsletter schedule so you deliver work on time
Following style guides to ensure that content matches a client’s professional tone of voice

Editing and proofing content to ensure everything is consistently great

Helping us become the ‘go-to’ financial services marketing agency by exceeding expectations and embracing innovation

We don’t want you to create boring, mediocre content that no one will read. We also don’t expect you to make loads of cups of tea (at least no more than you will drink yourself). We’re looking for someone with an enthusiastic attitude and a passion for personal finance. You’ll also be expected to deliver projects on time, and to the highest quality. We want someone who isn’t afraid of being held to high standards.

As Steve Jobs said: “Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”

Now you know how we got our name!

If you’re the person we’re looking for, we need you to be able to demonstrate:

Proficiency in writing engaging content (please include examples of your work with your application. If this isn’t included, we won’t be able to consider your application, and you don’t want that)

A keen eye for detail and consistency

A good grasp of all things personal finance (or at least a willingness to learn)

That you can offer and accept constructive feedback to constantly improve the quality of your work.

If you already have personal finance experience and know an ISA from a pension or a SIPP from a SSAS, we definitely want to hear from you.

However, we also want to hear from experienced copywriters who might have a passion for personal finance, if not the experience.
