Content Writer - London

Description

Why us?

We strive to simplify some of the most complex and daunting consumer marketplaces, to genuinely improve the lives of our users. Across our platforms - uSwitch, Money, and Bankrate - we give millions of people the tools, data, and insight to save thousands of pounds per year by taking control of their utility bills, gadgets, and finance products. And now we’re looking to help consumers with one of life’s most stressful experiences: getting a mortgage, buying a house, and connecting up all their new utilities and devices!

We believe in being great people to work with: we are very passionate about our own work, but we think that it’s important to make time to help others with their work - so that the entire team gets better every day. We are entrepreneurial - we believe in challenging the status quo and solving problems our users will face tomorrow. Perhaps most of all, we are inclusive: no matter who we are, where we come from, or which project we work on, we are one team with one dream: improving the lives of our users through awesome experiences.

  • Collaborating with the broader Content community across uSwitch, Money, and Bankrate to develop best practices, share successes and failures, and to elevate Content as a discipline across the company
