Jobs & internships – MoneySavingExpert


When jobs and internships are available at MoneySavingExpert.com, we like it when they go to site users. Most jobs are advertised first in our free weekly email.
 

This page lists all of our current job opportunities, which are based in London unless stated. Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the MoneySavingExpert team have been working from home and this continues to be the case. The images that appear on this page were taken before the pandemic and social-distancing measures came into force.

We don't show salaries on our website, as this would mean future and existing team members' incomes being publicly recorded. But we encourage potential applicants to contact us to ask questions about this or any other aspect of the jobs we advertise – contact details for each role are included in our ads.

MoneySavingExpert is a part of the MoneySupermarket Group, but is entirely editorially independent. Its stance of putting consumers first is protected and enshrined in the legally binding MSE Editorial Code.

Why work for MoneySavingExpert?

About us

As we say at the top of every page, everything we do at MSE is about helping our users cut their costs, and fighting their corner. We do this through a huge and varied range of output – from exclusive news stories on consumer topics, to our detailed and constantly updated product guides; from daily deals that give our readers the best value for money, to determined campaigning that goes to the heart of Government and effects policy changes. And that's not to mention our MoneySaving tools such as Cheap Energy Club and Broadband Unbundled, and our massively popular weekly Money Tips email.

To do this, we need a brilliant team of journalists, analysts and campaigners, and also press officers, social media executives, designers, developers, product managers and more. We're proud of the way everyone at MSE works collaboratively and supportively, driven by our shared sense of mission.

We're committed to promoting a culture of equality, inclusivity and diversity, and do everything we can to support our colleagues and help them be at their best. MSE's parent company MoneySupermarket was listed in the 2019/20 Inclusive Top 50 UK Employers List.

Our office

MoneySavingExpert is based on floor five of 1 Dean Street in London, aka "MSE Towers". Our office is just off Oxford Street, close to the heart of Soho, and a short walk from Tottenham Court Road tube station (the entrance to the new Crossrail station is literally at our front door). It's a bright, open-plan space, with communal kitchens on each floor and a roof terrace.

Note: Given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, at present the majority of our team are working remotely from home.

How we work

Every morning starts with a daily news and projects meeting, where each of the various teams updates their colleagues on what they are working on and informs them of any developments in their area.

Tuesday is a focal point of the MSE week – it's the day we produce our weekly Money Tips email, aka "The Tip", which goes out to millions of subscribers. Production is fast-paced, with plenty of last-minute fact-checking and wordsmithing, requiring good communication from the whole team.

Throughout the week, there are collaborative sessions focused on projects, such as plans for new editorial content or updates to our website. And once a fortnight on Thursdays, we have our team Stand Up – where the whole of MSE comes together to discuss recent developments within the company, get updates from individual teams, hear from guest speakers and present various group awards, such as our monthly Star Employee.

The company also offers Wellbeing Wednesdays, which boast multiple health and fitness activities such as complimentary massages and yoga classes; our Represent group that runs regular events with the aim of creating belonging by fostering an inclusive environment and celebrating diversity within the MoneySupermarket Group; and social gatherings every Friday.

Current vacancies

Content Writer – six-month fixed-term contract (x1 role)

MoneySavingExpert.com is looking for a talented content writer to join our Editorial team in our central London office.

The successful candidate will need to be organised, have a keen eye for detail and be able to get their head around complex topics.

In the main, you'll support the Editorial team to further modernise and optimise the site, make additions to existing guides and update our content on topics ranging from credit cards, energy, students, mortgages and even potholes!

You'll need to ensure the information in MSE's guides, tools and weekly email is 100% accurate and up to date.

For more information and how to apply, please visit the MoneySupermarket Group careers site.

Money Writer – 12-month fixed-term contract (x2 roles)

MoneySavingExpert is seeking two talented, hungry and experienced writers to join our Money team. The successful candidates will deliver regular news stories and content for the weekly email, and will write and update a wide range of guides.

The two roles are maternity leave cover, both being 12-month fixed-term contracts. One role is full-time, the other offers part-time hours – three working days per week.

As a money writer, you'll be passionate about helping others understand personal finance. You'll have the ability to research and analyse complex personal finance topics and to write accurately and engagingly about them. You'll be (or become) an expert on topics including pensions, tax, mortgages, students, coronavirus financial help and more.

These roles have two main parts. The first is to ensure our existing content on various personal finance topics is up to date, engaging and easy to digest. You'll also need to make sure the content in MSE's guides, tools and weekly email is 100% accurate.

The second part is to pitch new and innovative ideas for blogs, news stories and site guides. Whether it's a topic we don't have content on yet, or a new personal finance app you're desperate to review, you'll have the chance to do that. We also want you to pitch ideas and produce content for the MSE weekly email.

We're a supportive and friendly team of four and are looking for people who'll bring a comfort with numbers and great writing ability to the team. MSE's Editorial team is currently working remotely, but you'll be based in our central London office in the longer term.

For more information on the full-time role and the part-time role, please visit the MoneySupermarket Group careers site.

News Reporter (x2 roles)

MoneySavingExpert.com is recruiting two news reporters to join its News and Investigations team. One role is permanent, the other is maternity cover (a 12-month fixed-term contract).

We're looking for talented and hungry journalists to help drive the site's agenda-setting news coverage and put together national-headline-grabbing investigations. You will understand our practical, campaigning journalism, be able to hit the ground running and consistently deliver top-notch exclusives.

Previous experience of personal finance or consumer topics is an advantage, not essential – but you will need an excellent news sense, plus some experience as a reporter.

As well as being a top-notch journalist who can explain complicated subjects in an easy-to-read manner, you'll have an analytical mind and meticulous attention to detail. You must be comfortable number-crunching, asking forensic questions and sweating the small print, then explaining the inner workings of an ISA in a few chatty, engaging paragraphs. Puns are a plus.

We are keen to increase the impact of our investigative journalism, so would particularly welcome applications from candidates with skills and experience in this area.

For more information and how to apply, please visit the MoneySupermarket Group careers site.

Press Officer – six-month fixed-term contract (entry level, x1 role)

MoneySavingExpert.com is recruiting a press officer to share responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the MSE press office.

We are looking for a highly self-motivated person who can take ownership of their own work and assist with core PR duties such as answering media requests, booking interviews, briefing spokespeople, measuring and logging coverage and writing press materials.

You will need to have demonstrable interest in all things media – with an understanding of the UK's media landscape and the role of PR – and will always have one eye on creative PR across the industry. We are also keen to meet candidates who are interested in digital communications.

You will play an exciting role in fighting consumers' corner. PR is a key influencing tool for MSE's campaigning work, which involves persuading policymakers, regulators, businesses and MPs. MSE is a politically neutral organisation, so the press officer will be expected to embody this neutral stance in the work they undertake, and to carry themselves in a way that protects MSE's trusted reputation and independence.

This is an entry-level role and would suit someone looking to develop their career in PR (with a focus on media relations). It would equally suit someone who is looking to change career direction or return to a career in PR.

For more information and how to apply, please visit the MoneySupermarket Group careers site.

Research & Policy Officer (x1 role)

MoneySavingExpert is seeking a research and policy officer to join our Campaigns team.

Campaigns is a small but high-profile team within MSE, focused on delivering better outcomes for consumers and stronger consumer protection through its work, which takes in research, policy, public affairs, stakeholder engagement and PR.

Our research and policy officer will focus on delivering research projects and policy recommendations that fight the consumer's corner.

The post will involve a range of tasks, from desk-based research projects that produce short briefings, to planning and executing longer projects that utilise a range of research methods, both qualitative and quantitative. It will also involve liaising closely and effectively with external organisations that we work with on research projects from time to time.

You will be comfortable advising on research design, conducting research and writing it up, suggesting potential policy recommendations, and presenting findings to internal and external stakeholders (either in writing or orally).

The successful candidate will be able to quickly read and digest consultation documents and produce responses on behalf of MSE. You will be able to understand the technical details of policy, and translate this into plain English, plus be prepared to take ownership and help drive things forward.

This is a full-time position usually based in our central London office, though there is some opportunity for flexible working and the MoneySavingExpert team is currently working from home due to the pandemic.

For more information and how to apply, please visit the MoneySupermarket Group careers site.
