Financial Direct Response Copywriter

This is your chance to become a seasoned copywriter with an incredible Singapore-based team around you.

Do you want to help people make money?

Can you assist in persuading them to change their habits and assumptions - not “someday soon” but RIGHT NOW?

This is your one shot to get in at the beginning… to actually BE on the team that helps shape our marketing program as our membership business explodes.

Because our team is spring-loaded and ready to make this happen.

Our Motley Fool Singapore program is only a few years old, and we're seeing exciting growth. In fact, we're in dire need of copywriters and marketing experts - creative people who crave creative outlets, and are looking to work hard to make it to the next level, and become a full-time copywriter at The Motley Fool.

We already have over more than 100,000 subscribers and thousands of paid members.

A lot of that is due to our copywriters and the talent of our investing experts.

And that's why I think you'll be interested in this job today.

Because if you can take dense topics and complex formulas… and translate them into easy-to-read English that transforms interest into action… then you should maybe get in touch with us today.

But if you can do all that in an intensely collaborative team environment… shaping the strategic direction of our marketing messages and partnering with our designers, coordinators, investment analysts, tech developers, and fellow writers to bring them to life … then you should definitely get in touch with us today.

Many people will apply for this position—but only a few will actually have the skills and wherewithal to make it through our interviews.

Will you be one of the lucky few?
