Financial Journalists (x 3)

Posted 15 October by Rhotic Media
£25,000 - £45,000 per annum
London , South East England

Are you a great writer? Do you have a good grasp of at least one area of financial services? Do you want to join an ambitious company that is growing at speed? If yes, then we want to hear from you.

Rhotic Media has two main revenue lines - content for news publishers and content for non-media businesses. Our editorial teams write for newswires, newspapers, trade journals, broadcasters and B2B titles. Our corporate writers, meanwhile, produce brochures, reports, research, and blogs for some of the biggest companies in the world.

Our growth has been driven by our operating model of supporting the news industry, while also providing corporate content to major corporations. In any one week, our team produces the broadest possible range of written content, ranging from corporate research reports to independent news stories. Our clients rely on us to have a well-rounded understanding of the global economic and investment landscape, and to be able to recognise topical themes and unravel technical jargon.

The company is managed by an executive team of experienced journalists that have worked for the three largest financial media groups in the world.

WHAT WE OFFER

Rhotic Media has four dedicated teams of writers: news, features, companies and markets and financial services.

We are currently seeking writers for two of these teams. We are currently working with clients on a range of editorial and corporate briefs which include writing in a varied number of styles, such as features, newsletters, blogs, website pages, news stories, thought leadership reports and video scripts. If you’re looking to join a company where the work is varied, then this is the job for you!

We offer a competitive salary, flexible working and the opportunity to be a part of a team that is committed to building a company that cares about its employees, its clients and broader society.

We want our staff to feel financially secure, so we pay salaries to reflect this. Salaries are grouped into bands, based on experience. Salaries are standardised across the board, with no discrimination based on your gender, race, sexuality, or social background.

We are a 'remote-first' organisation and provide laptops and mobile phones to assist with remote working. However, we also have bricks and mortar offices in London and Essex for our colleagues to meet clients or host team meetings. We also supply co-working passes to our colleagues around the UK so they can work in a professional environment, should they so wish.

Our pension scheme is with the National Employment Savings Trust and staff are eligible for the pension scheme from their first day.

All of our team are covered by the confidential Rhotic Media Employee Assistance Scheme. This service, run by an external provider, offers free access to professionals in the legal, medical, financial and well-being sectors, should they require any help with their life outside of work.

WHO WE WANT

For this role, we are seeking a financial journalist or writer with a good knowledge of at least one area of financial services. This could be investments, pensions, trading, retail banking, wealth management, mortgages, lending, insurance, investment banking or tax.

If you’ve got experience writing commercial features or thought leadership reports, that is a big plus, but we’re keen to hear from anyone who thinks this role might be for them. Ideally, we’re looking for financial journalists or writers with at least three years of experience for this role.

As a signatory to the Social Mobility Pledge, we are not prescriptive about educational background, but we would anticipate that the right candidate would be able to demonstrate relevant skills or experience. We will consider candidates that do not fit this brief entirely, but we ask that those applying from different backgrounds offer convincing reasons why they should be considered. We would also consider a job share for this role.

HOW TO APPLY

Interested parties should email Joe McGrath with their CV or LinkedIn profile and a covering letter explaining why they feel the company would be a good fit for them.
