Position: Lead Writer and Personal Finance Expert

Level: Associate

Location: Norwich, UK or Remote (Candidates must be based in the UK)

Employment type: FTE

Department: Content

NerdWallet, a platform that provides financial guidance to consumers and small and medium enterprises (SMEs), is looking for a Writer in the UK to cover the personal finance choices that millions of people grapple with every day — and you should be comfortable helping to spread the word through various outreach channels (for example, article syndication, social media, and even TV and radio) about the guidance, resources and tools we offer.

Successful candidates must translate complex topics — such as loans, mortgages, banking, insurance, energy and general personal finance — into conversational articles that frame the answers our audience seeks with the context it deserves. They should also proactively identify trends and news that will interest readers, as well as media that can link to and potentially syndicate our content.

Where you can make an impact:

  • Write high-quality, rigorously fact-checked stories with a strong consumer-first orientation.
  • Share expertise and timely/relevant ideas to support NerdWallet’s PR, social, syndication and media strategies.
  • Use your strong quantitative and analytical skills to find new insights and compelling stories from data.
  • Represent the NerdWallet brand externally with accurate, on-point messaging in articles, over the phone, at events, and on radio, video and broadcasts. [Full training and support provided]
  • Show authority and leadership on timely, challenging and even controversial topics.
  • Leverage insights from analytics to grow NerdWallet's readership and improve the user experience through new content and optimizations.
  • Strengthen NerdWallet's approach to product reviews and comparisons.

You are:

  • A strong communicator who can empathize with consumers and help them navigate complex financial decisions.
  • Adept at prioritization and handling multiple projects at once.
  • Resourceful and self-directed. You can tackle anything from story assignments to projects with minimal direction, and you consistently deliver polished work.
  • Comfortable with change and a fast-paced environment.
  • Able to provide examples of how you've taken initiative and driven projects throughout your career.
  • Passionate about self-improvement and at ease with constructive feedback.
  • Someone who works with equal enthusiasm whether you’re a project leader or team member.
  • Eager to learn about new personal finance topics, develop relevant sources and communicate consumer-first advice.

Your experience:

We recognize not everyone will have all of these requirements. If you meet most of the criteria below and you’re excited about the opportunity and willing to learn, we’d love to hear from you.

  • Experience writing about personal finance for consumer-facing publications in the UK.
  • Experience speaking conversationally through written and video content, speaking engagements or other forms of media interviews, about complex topics to help consumers and SMEs take action.
  • Have worked or are willing to work with the Communications team on best practices and training.
  • Open to flexible scheduling because media interviews can happen outside the normal work day.
  • Have a passion for helping consumers and SMEs.

Where:

  • This role will be based in Norwich, UK or remote (based in the UK).
