Description:

 

Money Talks News has been a nationally syndicated television news series since 1991. While we still appear within the local news of more than 80 network affiliates nationwide, since 2010 we’ve been focused on developing our web presence with both print articles and video.

In addition to MoneyTalksNews.com, our work also frequently appears on the largest personal finance sites in the world, including MSN Money, Yahoo Finance, Huffington Post and more.

We’re seeking an experienced online editor who understands how to write/edit/copyedit personal finance news and information. We need someone who can take a topic that typically makes a reader’s eyes glaze and make them light up!  

Money Talks News is headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, and we’re considering a branch in NYC. But if you’re someone we can’t live without, live wherever you please.    

As our managing editor, you’ll be responsible for sourcing, assigning, creating, editing and copyediting compelling news and information that will keep our readers entertained and make them richer.

You should have at least five years of experience in consumer/personal finance news (this is bolded for a reason), along with a strong background in editing and copyediting.

We’re looking for an editor who knows the space, the competition, the players, the topics and what it takes to create headlines and content that people want to read. 

In addition to being an idea factory, you’ll need to work with freelance writers of varying experience and talent as well as our video team.  You’ll be knowledgeable in Word Press and SEO.

We’re a small team of energetic personal finance fanatics who love having fun, helping people and making money.  You’ll need a good sense of humor, flexible work hours, a home office, and the vision and desire to make Money Talks News the most widely read and watched personal finance news source on the planet.

To apply, send a resume and tell us why we'd be crazy not to hire you. jobs@moneytalksnews.com Subject: Personal Finance Editor.

What you'll do:

  • Work from home while you develop story ideas, write occasional articles, assign stories to freelance staff and oversee all written content
  • Find new writers and develop current ones

  • Manage the editorial budget
  • Help with big-picture site strategy
  • Meet deadlines

What you’ll need:

  • A bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience
  • A minimum of five years of personal finance writing/editing experience - If you're not knowlegeable and experienced in personal finance, please don't apply
  • An intuitive understanding of what makes compelling personal finance copy
  • An entrepreneurial desire, along with the ability to think outside the box and imagine what’s next
  • A superior ability in editing, fact checking and copyediting
  • An allergy to publishing anything even remotely inaccurate
