MoneyMagpie is a personal finance site that’s been running since 2008. We’re growing – and that means we need someone fabulous to be our Content Editor. You will have great planning, editing and writing skills, with experience in investing and personal finance writing, and you can live anywhere in the world to do the job. 

We need a self-starter who loves working with people (and spreadsheets). Someone who can research current trends and create content plans around what’s in the financial news as well as evergreen personal finance and investing content. Experience in writing investment and general personal finance articles is essential, as is an ability to manage people, work with both freelancers and in-house staff, and have great project management skills.

In return, you’ll get a new role to shape as your own within a loyal, fun, and hardworking team. We aim to make finance fun – and that’s reflected in the people we hire. The position is – and always will be – entirely remote. Since 2013, we’ve operated as a remote company with people based across the UK and beyond – so it’s second nature to us.
