Are you a great writer and editor? Do you know how to get people avidly clicking, sharing and talking about content? And do you have an interest in investing and economics?

If so, then this is the job for you.

MoneyWeek is the UK’s best-selling financial magazine, with a focus on investment, economics and financial education. Our audience is primarily made up of private investors of all levels of experience, and City professionals.

As well as our weekly print magazine and iPad edition, we publish several newsletters, a range of free emails, and regularly post original blog and video content to our website, moneyweek.com.

We’re looking for a digital content editor to take our website, moneyweek.com, to the next level.

You’ll be responsible for driving more traffic to the website, engaging our readers while they’re there, and getting them to keep coming back again and again.

That’ll involve writing and commissioning punchy, entertaining content for our website; working closely with our marketing department on our social media strategy; and rapidly figuring out what works and what doesn’t.

Getting a bit more specific, the job involves:

: Editing, writing and commissioning content for the website.

: Repackaging existing content from our large archive that could be working harder.

: Ensuring our content is being presented in the best possible way for all viewing formats, from mobile to tablet and anything else – Google Glass? – that ends up being relevant in the future.

: Considering how our online content, email content and printed content can best complement and co-ordinate with one another.

The core skills we’d expect are:

: You need to understand the world of digital journalism inside out – understand SEO, be an active user of Twitter, Facebook and other key social media, and have a slightly unhealthy fondness for analytical data.

: You need to be a great writer and editor, and preferably have some experience of commissioning.

: You need to have an interest in, if not direct experience of, investment, economics and finance.

: You need to work well as part of a team.

This is a full-time, office-based role. Salary is dependent on experience.
