As part of the editorial team, you will research, write and publish new product reviews and finance news articles to improve and expand our websites.

As our new writer, you will conduct research for product reviews, proofread articles before publication, publish your writing on WordPress, and write relevant finance articles for publication on news sites. Your task will be to deliver high-quality pieces that appeal to our audience, attract customers and boost brand awareness. And we hope that you have fun doing it.

You must retain a keen interest to learn as this is a very dynamic online industry that changes with the times.

We all work remotely from home, so you need to be a self-starter and keep to deadlines – often self-imposed.
