Who are you?

We’re looking for a kickass writer to help Australians make better decisions. You’re a master of words, capable of writing and editing high-quality copy in a fast-paced environment. You’re hungry for success, never satisfied coming in second place, and driven to make complex topics easy to understand for readers. You understand the power of SEO, and know how to reach the largest audience by leveraging every platform at your disposal. You’re passionate about using your skills to help make a real difference to millions of Australians.

In this role, you’ll be writing about a broad range of topic areas in Insurance, from health to travel and automotive to insurtech. You’ll be writing and improving a range of article types including product comparisons and reviews, long form guides and features, money hacks and saving tips, and general news. You’ll be equally comfortable with crafting copy that’s on-brand and drives audience growth, engagement and loyalty, as you are with the data that informs your decisions.

The ideal candidate will be inquisitive by nature, a self-starter and have both the ability to work autonomously and collaborate with the editor, publishers and broader insurance team. A basic understanding of SEO principles is desirable, as is previous experience working with a CMS such as WordPress.

Key Responsibilities include:

Owning the content – You’ll drive the editorial tone, setting the benchmark for Australian insurance comparison. This includes writing your own content, editing existing content and work from freelancers, and working with the publishing team to improve pages; all while leveraging key SEO principles to ensure your work reaches the largest possible audience.
Empathy – You’re an expert, but you’ll be able to step into the user’s shoes to understand their pain points. You’ll be able to explain complicated ideas to a layperson without dumbing things down.
Being the voice of insurance – You’ll assist our award-winning PR team with ideas and pitches around the insurance space. You’ll work with marketing to develop newsletters and the creative team for social and video pieces. Your knowledge will help our developers build a better comparison engine.
Advanced On-Page SEO – You’ll take advantage of your deep understanding of the latest search engine ranking factors to ensure our content has the best possibility visibility within search engine results pages.
Uncovering every opportunity – You’ll use your extensive research capabilities to produce holistic and comprehensive content that provides genuine value to our users.
Building and leveraging industry relationships – You’ll foster relationships within the insurance industry.

Essential Requirements of the role:

Highly developed writing skills and the ability to produce well-written copy every time
The ability to write SEO- and user-friendly web copy that is optimised for conversion
Ability to work to deadlines
A history of managing editorial projects
An enterprising, proactive attitude
A genuine belief in your work and desire to be the best at what you do
Basic CMS skills (previous WordPress experience will be highly regarded)
Understanding of the basic principles of SEO
An ideas person with empathy for the end user
Flexible and able to adapt to changing priorities
A team player who is very capable of working independently
A tertiary qualification in journalism, media, arts or a related field

While previous insurance experience will be highly regarded, we invite any candidates to apply who truly believe they have the right skills, background, interest, dedication and training for this opportunity.

If this sounds like the kind of opportunity you’ve been looking for, hit apply and submit your cover letter, resume and 3 writing samples. Use your cover letter to introduce us to you; we want to know who you are, what you’ve worked on and why you think you’d be a great addition to the Finder team.

Please note that applications without a cover letter will be rejected.
