iwoca is unlocking economic growth by expanding the financial possibilities available to small business owners. Since 2012, we've made finance available to over 50,000 businesses across Europe and lent over £1 billion. Our customers include everything from cafés to car dealers, salons to solicitors. Our mission is to fund 1 million businesses - and that’s why we need you.

iwoca is one of the fastest growing fintechs in Europe (Deloitte Fast 50; FT 1000 list). We secured significant Series D funding to fuel even more expansion and we were the winners of the £10m Banking Competition Remedies grant.

We are looking for smart, humble, motivated people with a growth mindset to join the Marketing team and help us speak to small businesses

We’re looking for a writer to join our team

We’ve recently developed a brand voice and trained a whopping 163 iwocans to use it – in our customer comms, in our marketing materials, in our internal messages and emails. Lending is a complicated area, and we want to make it straightforward as possible for small businesses to understand while still showing our distinctive personality and iwocaness.

Your mission will be to:

  • write and own hero comms both internal and external(e.g. website copy, key customer comms, investor material, newletters and materials for press)
  • look after the quality of our communication and find areas our communication could be better
  • keep everyone engaged with and excited by our tone of voice
  • demonstrate and measure the difference our writing makes
  • lead our network of 12 tone of voice champs across the company - to build a strategy to increase our comm
  • run one-on-one coaching sessions to help people write like iwoca and champion our tone of voice.

Of course, you’ll be doing a lot of writing yourself. In any given day, you might be polishing up some UX flows from our lending journey, fine-tuning our advertising, creating a whole set of customer emails or reworking our employee handbook.

Requirements

We look for people that are smart, humble, motivated and who are always looking to improve. Ideally, you’ll:

  • Bachelor's or Master's degree in English, Journalism or related field.
  • Knowledge of digital marketing tactics, including SEO, email marketing and web analytics.

  • understand how to adapt messaging for different audiences - press, employees and customers
  • feel comfortable speaking in front of a room and running workshops
  • have regularly worked with others to improve the quality of their comms
  • be able to juggle different projects at once
