Most of our staff have worked for large asset-management companies. These are genuinely great companies, but our people have chosen a career with Copylab because we’re different. We give them the chance to do the job they love – writing about investments – but in the more flexible, informal and relaxed environment of an agency. We value people who are naturally creative, are intrigued by investments, have a strong work ethic and have great attention to detail.
If this sounds like a company you could join, then we’d like to hear from you. We have ambitious growth plans and are always on the lookout for new talent – permanent, contract and freelance writers and editors. So if you’re an investment writer, a creative financial copywriter or an editor, then get in touch.
We are please to announce that we have joined the Living Wage movement and are now an accredited Living Wage employer. This means that every member of staff in our organisation earns not just the minimum wage but the real Living Wage. The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually, based on the cost of living in the UK.
We believe that every member of staff deserves a Living Wage, because a fair day’s work deserves and fair day’s pay. You can find out more about the Living Wage by clicking here.
Freelance RFP Writers
We are currently recruiting Freelance RFP Writers for one of our asset management clients in the City of London. Please click here for further information.
We are always on the lookout for talented, financially expert freelancers to join the Copylab team. If this sounds like you, please send your CV and a short note to our HR manager, Kirstie Speed.
Opportunities to travel and grow
I have always eyed financial services job adverts that describe the role as “an exciting career opportunity” with some scepticism. It’s not exactly Formula 1, is it? I’m not being negative on the industry – after all, it’s looked after me all my working life. I’m just being realistic.
However, if someone were to ask me to describe my experience working at Copylab over the past few years, I would freely admit it has been exciting! Why? Because it’s a company that allows me to breathe. To do things I hadn’t realised I wanted to do.
Last year, Ross announced that he was looking to expand Copylab’s operations in the Far East, and asked if anyone was interested in helping out. I volunteered, and a few months later I was sitting on the 36th floor of an office building overlooking Hong Kong’s harbour, talking to potential clients about how we could help them with their investment writing needs.
It really doesn’t get much more exciting than that. Well, it does – I then headed to Singapore to do the same.
That’s what Copylab is about. It takes ordinary people and turns them into far less ordinary employees. Which is extraordinary, don¹t you think?
Your career is in your hands
As a fast-growing international business, we can offer genuine opportunities for career development – in the UK, North America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East
Opportunity to travel globally
As our international ambitions become a reality, you can travel with us and see the world. Not many asset managers can give you that benefit.
Great working culture
We work hard. But we make sure there’s time for a bit of fun along the way. Your creativity can thrive and good ideas quickly become reality.
As long as our clients get what they need, you can work in our offices or from home (or somewhere else), and enjoy flexible hours to suit.
We discriminate only on the basis of talent. We’re a diverse bunch here and are supporters of the 30% Club.
In addition to your salary, you can earn commission on new business you bring to us, receive bonuses for referring new staff members to us, and benefit from our profit-share scheme.
We don’t want to be a lumbering corporate. Even as we grow, we’re trying to maintain the balance between being organised and remaining creative.
Make a contribution
We’re small enough that you can make a real impact on our business. Those who excel can potentially benefit from partnership.
