MoneyMagpie: content editor, full-time position, but can be part-time. Also open to freelance applicants on a pro-rata basis.

MoneyMagpie is a personal finance site that has been running since 2008. We are 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 is 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 will get a new role to shape as your own within a loyal, fun, and hardworking team. We aim to make finance fun – and that is reflected in the people we hire. The position is – and always will be – entirely remote. Since 2013, we hve operated as a remote company with people based across the UK and beyond – so it is second nature to us.

A content editor will have:

  • Three to five years’ experience in writing and editing investment and personal finance articles
  • Strong project management skills
  • An understanding of different media channels in content plans (social, PR, web content etc)
  • A proven ability to create content schedules
  • Strong research skills
  • Confidence with multitasking
  • Experience running cross-platform campaigns
  • Attention to detail
  • Great interpersonal skills

Our content editor would ideally have:

  • An understanding of SEO
  • Experience with Google Analytics
