About the position:

We are looking for a content writer to help define and execute the content strategy for in-house and external websites. This is a role for someone who thrives in a fast-paced, growing organisation and enjoys the challenges of working across several brands at the same time. This is not an agency, but it feels like one at times. You will be joining a young team, working among ambitious, honest, and result-driven individuals in a progressive working environment.

What you'll be doing:

  • Work with the SEO Manager to develop the content calendar for internal and external brands
  • Be comfortable creating content within the insurance/finance industry, sustainable business solutions, as well as for various e-commerce sites (both short and long form)
  • Help grow organic traffic and revenue for our in-house & other external sites
  • Produce engaging copy across multiple media. Online, email, social and more
  • Write, edit and proofread outbound content. On brand and on time.
  • Collaborate with all members of the team to produce creative, persuasive, innovative content for online, email, and social channels
  • Embrace the ethos of the company, implementing brand guidelines and company standards across all communications
  • Always ensure the highest ethical and editorial standards


What we're looking for:

  • A genuine passion for writing is essential
  • Relevant experience as a content writer - being able to provide examples of short and form content is a huge bonus
  • Self-motivated individual that does not require or expect micromanagement to maintain consistent productivity
  • Be able to produce strong, relevant content satisfying search intent by being given an article title. But also, be able to follow content outlines as needed
  • Experience working to, and achieving, deadlines when necessary
  • Flexible, adaptable, and comfortable managing workloads
  • Well organised and meticulous, with an outstanding eye for detail
  • Ambitious. Committed. Creative.


Your skills, knowledge and experience:
  • 1-2 years' experience in content writing or another digital marketing role with a focus on content
  • Comfortable writing on any given subject in a relevant, engaging, and informative style, following the brand's tone of voice
  • Understand basic SEO concepts and be able to implement them in your writing
  • Extremely flexible, with experience of handling multiple projects to tight deadlines
  • A positive, can-do attitude, and a true team player
  • Experience researching for interesting stories and articles
  • Experience in writing for various digital platforms, blog articles and content for websites


Location: Mostly remote, but ideally within commutable distance to the Coventry office

About the Package:
  • £23-30K salary, depending on experience
  • Training and learning resources to enable your professional development
  • Private pension after 3 months
  • Private medical insurance after 6 months
