At Seccl, we’re rebuilding the infrastructure of investments and advice.
We provide the vital technology that empowers forward-thinking, entrepreneurial advisers and wealth managers to build the efficient, customer-centric businesses of the future. Powered by Seccl, they can grow more quickly, expand into new and exciting areas and deliver a better experience for their customers.
And we help fintechs to realise their ambitions, by providing plug-and-play access to financial markets. With us at their core, they can build innovative investment or advice solutions on top of our technology quickly and cheaply.
We are part of the Octopus Group – an innovative group of companies that’s on a mission to breathe new life into energy and financial services. We want to change both these industries for the better, to reinvent them the way they should be, improving the lives of millions of people.
We’re looking for a versatile, talented writer who can help us to shape how we communicate and bring our brand to life in the written form – by creating a rich suite of great written content. Content that’s clear, engaging, helpful – and that people enjoy and look forward to reading.
On a day-to-day level, you’ll…
Work with key strategic members of the business to understand our target market (which includes both established investment and advice firms and up-and-coming fintechs) – so that you can create content that speaks to their needs, and with the right voice.
Produce regular prospect-facing blog and social media content to support our inbound marketing, as well as recruitment-facing blog/social content to build Seccl’s employer brand
Write less regular long-form guides, reports and white papers, to provide the cornerstone content for marketing campaigns
Develop persuasive and informative marketing emails that engage prospects, helping to nurture them on the path to purchase
Write web copy (and perhaps occasionally support the product team with UX/micro-copy, too) and ad text
Help brainstorm new content, new campaigns and new customer experience initiatives that’ll make our audience love us – and support in maintaining an integrated calendar of content across blogs, social and email
You’ll be someone who’s:
Creative. You’ll probably be an avid consumer of content – news, social posts, video, whatever – and like producing it.
Able to grasp complex concepts quickly and communicate them simply and clearly – whether in a five-word headline, a research whitepaper or a social media post.
Highly organised and able to keep multiple plates spinning. You’ll be ready and eager to crank out varied content at pace.
A fast learner who’s curious, eager to try new things and always looking to learn new skills.
A doer – someone who can come up with good ideas, then follow them through to completion.
Comfortable with ambiguity. A genuine self-starter, you’ll enjoy thinking up and experimenting with new ideas for content. If you want it all on a plate, you’ll be disappointed here…
Excited about working in a rapidly growing fintech with a steep learning curve
We’re a team of ambitious, talented, and creative people who are passionate about using technology to improve our financial world.
We have a positive, open environment that promotes fresh ideas, challenge and experimentation, and encourages continual learning. We provide flexible working that focusses on delivery rather than just focusing on hours worked.
We’re based in the historic City of Bath, a stone’s throw from the train station. (Literally. You could hit it from our office.)
