Content Editor

We're on the hunt for an experienced editor to join our team in East London. You'll be working alongside other editors to publish first-class, engaging content to our 2 million monthly readers.

Since 2007 Save the Student has grown to become the UK’s leading student money website. Our mission is to educate and support undergraduate students in making their money go further whilst at university.

  • Overall long-term content strategy
  • Coming up with fresh and exciting content ideas
  • Researching, copywriting & editing informative articles
  • Sourcing, editing and placing images within articles
  • Editing and proofreading the work of others
  • Keeping up-to-date with the latest student finance & consumer news.

Only apply if you:

  • Have at least 2 years’ experience in editorial work
  • Have experience with online editing
  • Are passionate about helping people
  • Have a consumer or finance writing background
  • Have a good knowledge of pop culture (for youth references/images)
  • Have been to university
  • Are OCD about spelling and grammar
  • Can meet tight deadlines
  • Have a GSOH (at risk of sounding like a lonely hearts ad).

This is a rare opportunity to be at the forefront of creative decisions and be read by millions. If this all sounds up your alley, we want to hear from you!

What to expect at Save the Student:

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

Our office motto is “work like a captain, play like a pirate” – but we promise the boat-related puns end there (although probably not).

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 & occasionally a Deliveroo lunch, plus every month the whole team takes half a day off to do something fun in London!
