Do you have a knowledge of IT systems and a love of technology and writing?

We're looking for a gifted writer and communicator who enjoys complex software, learning the ins and outs of systems and helping others. In this detail orientated role, you'll develop a thorough understanding of a leading edge trading product in order to produce documentation, tutorials and guides for end users in the financial sector. An empathy for the user will be key to your success as crafting problem-solving content that makes customers happier and more productive is the focus of this role.

In return, you'll gain exposure to both the buy-side and the sell-side of the financial services industry, from start up hedge funds to multi-national financial institutions.

Key responsibilities of the role:

  • Understand products and services in order to effectively engage with users.
  • Gather information from subject matter experts and work closely with various teams to understand the problems we are trying to solve and what users need to know.
  • Write new content that targets pain points and reduces friction so users become more productive.
  • Edit and improve existing content and publishing mechanisms to enable users to help themselves.

Skills, experience and qualifications sought:

  • The ideal candidate should have experience in finance, financial analysis, or micro strategy or monetary economics
  • Some previous experience writing technical documentation or marketing content for technical products would be ideal
  • A keen interest in trading systems, maybe you've written scripts or taken a course in Python for ICT markets or similar
  • A start-up mentality

Required:

  • The ability to communicate complicated issues and procedures clearly.
  • The ability to write error free content
  • A team player, you must also be conscientious and capable working alone.

Desirable:

  • Experience of working in the financial services industry
  • Degree holder

This opening is mostly home-based though some flexibility to attend office meetings is required, if you prefer to be in the office this is also welcomed.

If successful you'll be joining a dynamic company who offer opportunities to learn and a hugely supportive environment to build a career, with continuous development opportunities. An employer that respects independent thought, promotes knowledge sharing and supports work-life balance.
