We’re looking for a talented and enthusiastic Junior Investment Writer to join the Marketing team at Octopus Investments. You’ll be responsible for producing investment reporting materials, creating product literature and assisting with marketing campaigns, and will work closely with investment and product teams to help shape adviser and client communications.
At Octopus we’re transforming the industries we operate in and improving the lives of millions of people. We’ve built market-leading positions in a number of specialist sectors, including smaller company financing, renewable energy, healthcare and property finance. We employ over 500 people and manage more than £6 billion on behalf of more than 50,000 investors. Our products don’t just help real people solve real life problems, they also make a positive impact on the world around us.
The Octopus Group incorporates Octopus Energy, Octopus Healthcare, Octopus Investments, Octopus Property, Octopus Ventures and Octopus Labs. Our aim is to have an impact in everything we do, and to make a vital contribution to the UK economy by helping people, companies and institutions generate wealth. And we’re always on the look-out for smart, talented people who share our values.
About the role
You’ll be passionate about writing and be able to cut through repetition, investment jargon or boring waffle. You’ll have excellent written and verbal communication skills and demonstrate a willingness to learn about investment markets. You’ll also be capable of quickly picking up – and championing – the Octopus tone of voice.
The Marketing team works at a fast pace and is expected to uphold Octopus brand values by delivering high-quality content at all times. You’ll need to react well to working under pressure while still delivering excellent copy. You’ll enjoy being creatively challenged and being asked to think differently in a company that is earning a reputation for putting its customers first.
Essential job functions
Random acts of kindness make the workplace a better place. So, go out of your way to be helpful, and give people reasons to smile.
Life is complicated enough. Don’t make it harder for yourself, or for others. Sometimes the simplest approach works wonders.
Every great business started with a flash of inspiration. If you’ve got a great idea, don’t keep it to yourself.
At Octopus, we recognise the importance of embracing diversity in order to create a high performance culture.
