Skint Media is a growing online publisher, specialising in money related topics.
Working from an office in central Tunbridge Wells, within walking distance to the town centre and mainline station, we are a friendly bunch who are open to any and all ideas (we really are – we’ve managed to flog loo roll!).
We are keen to grow, so we want people to join us who will enjoy being part of that journey and growth.
We are looking for a junior content writer to join us in creating fun, engaging articles and blog posts with a focus on money for our award-winning site Skint Dad.
This is not a traditional personal finance writing position and we are looking for someone who can see finance from a different angle.
As part of our content team, you will be responsible for producing high-quality content, writing everything from guides to news and blog posts.
You will be writing new, original content for the site and will need pitch, research and edit blog posts, ensuring content is light-hearted, free from jargon and easy to understand.
If you have a passion for writing, as well as a passion for saving money, we will be keen to hear from you.
- Good written skills for online platforms
- Be creative, imaginative and let personality shine in your writing
- Ability to work to tight deadlines
- Attention to detail
- Passion for money and enjoy finding a new angle on a story
- Love a deal (and can find them better than your mates)
- Experience in blogging and using WordPress (CMS)
- Basic understanding of SEO
- Interest in social media
What’s in it for you?
We are a small, family focussed, growing company and there will be opportunities to develop if you’re happy to grow with us.
This role is initially on a freelance basis, working 15 hours over 3 days (we can be flexible on this). This is a contract for three months, with the view to become permanent after this time.
We have a non-stop supply of tea, coffee and biscuits on offer, as well as occasional treats (all related to food!)
To apply, please send your CV with links/examples of a couple of pieces of written work or send us an example of how you would write for us.
Please send your covering letter and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will aim to respond to applications within two weeks.
