From time to time, jobs and internships are available at MoneySavingExpert.com, and we like it when they go to site users. Most jobs are advertised first in the free weekly email.
This page has details of all current job opportunities (if any are available), based in London. Salaries for permanent roles are never listed, as that would mean future team members' incomes would be permanently recorded, but they tend to fit with experience.
A confident, skilled sub editor is required to work on the website and weekly newsletter.
As well as the basics of subbing (ie, ensuring copy is polished, maintains house style and is correctly spelt and punctuated) there is another key element to this role.
This person must be confident enough to challenge existing wisdom and challenge experienced journalists to ensure their copy is absolutely spot-on, contains precisely the correct information to help users and is always in line with the website's campaigning and consumer-first principles. This is not a proof-reading job, this is a role for a hard-nosed sub.
The successful candidate will be responsible for subbing MoneySaving guides, the weekly newsletter, product write-ups, news, blogs and other content such as on our many tools.
Candidates must have:
- The confidence to challenge experienced journalists and existing ways of working.
- Excellent sub-editing and proof-reading skills.
- Meticulous attention to detail.
- The ability to communicate effectively with writers and editors, and confidence to ask all necessary questions.
- Strong knowledge of personal finance and consumer issues.
- Online experience
- Familiarity with HTML
To apply, please email your CV, covering letter, salary expectation or any enquiries about the role to Johanna Gornitzki to email@example.com.
Money team analyst (six-month contract)
We have a vacancy for a researcher to join our editorial team in London on an initial six-month fixed contract.
Your main responsibility will be helping the team to keep the financial products on our site up to date.
As part of this, the role will involve updating existing product-based money guides with accurate information and new best buy products and helping the team research financial issues and products for new guides. This is to maintain our journalistic excellence so the information on the site is always up to date. You’ll also research the latest developments in the personal finance market, helping to feed in ideas for new areas for the team to focus on.
We’re looking for someone with very high levels of accuracy, organisation skills and attention to detail. You should have an interest in the personal finance sphere, and an ability to keep up to date with developments and spot future areas of interest. In addition, an understanding of personal finance products – credit cards, loans, savings – would be beneficial.
This role could suit a bright, motivated & numerate recent graduate, although people from all backgrounds with the relevant skills will be considered.
For more on main activities, skills required and responsibilities, see the full job description.
To apply, please email your CV and covering letter, along with your salary expectations, to Helen Saxon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Internships (none currently open)
MSE occasionally runs a rolling series of internships for MoneySavers looking to develop their careers and get relevant experience. These may be suitable for students able to work in the holidays, recent graduates or career changers.
It's important to understand these internships are not a prelude to a full-time job with MSE. They last for 12 weeks only, and we aim to provide appropriate experience to boost your chosen career. In return, we expect some hard work and a real contribution to the team.
To help with expenses for the intern period, MSE will pay the London Living Wage. Unfortunately, we currently have no internships open. Sign up to our weekly email to be alerted when they become available.
