save the student jobs

Save the Student was founded in 2007, and is now the UK's largest student money website.

Every month millions of students turn to us for the latest student news and financial advice, and to take advantage of the great student deals and exclusives we have on offer.

As the cost of university continues to rise, we're working harder than ever to support students and graduates across the country.

What to expect at Save the Student

We’re an experienced and sociable team making digital waves from our 60-foot yacht, safely moored in a vibrant dock just 15 seconds from a DLR station and 10 minutes from Canary Wharf.

Our office motto is “work like a captain, play like a pirate” - but the boat-related puns end there (although probably knot).

You’ll have one-to-one meetings every week, and fortnightly group editor sessions.

And every morning you’ll be greeted by our adorable office dog, Harry, a Havanese that loves everybody!

The office space is open-plan on the first deck, mid-deck is home to a games/TV area, ping-pong table, kitchen and lounge... and then there’s the roof terrace, which comes with some amazing views.

Fridays mean beers, gins and occasionally a Deliveroo lunch. Plus every month the whole team takes half a day off to do something fun in London!
