About Us

Moneyfacts Group plc is the UK’s leading provider of retail financial product data and has been pioneering financial comparison technology for over 35 years.

Moneyfacts' data is used by virtually every bank and building society in the UK, the Bank of England, Financial Conduct Authority, Financial Ombudsman Service, HM Treasury, Prudential Regulatory Authority and UK Finance.

Our finance experts provide news, commentary and insights across national & regional newspapers, magazines, trade press, online, television and radio, on the wide range of Mortgages, Savings, Banking, Personal Finance, Commercial Finance, Equity Release, Pensions.

We have an in-house broadcast room which enables our finance experts to appear in-vision for television, and we regularly comment live on national and regional radio.

Our press mentions reach 10 million consumers weekly in the media.

Every year our consumer financial comparison website, Moneyfactscompare.co.uk has over 5 million unique visitors.

 

The role

Based in our Norwich head office, this is a rare opportunity for an exceptional Press & PR Manager to join our busy Press Office and lead on enhancing Moneyfacts reputation and profile.

When the national and regional media need independent and impartial comment, insight, and explanation, they turn to Moneyfacts as the reliable and trusted source, so this is a dream job for a dynamic and passionate individual to be front and centre of our Press Office activity. The Press & PR Manager will want to see more than just their name in print, they will be all over the story, on TV and Radio talking enthusiastically on BBC News, Sky News, ITV News, BBC Radio and other national and regional stations.

The successful candidate will be responsible for proactively selling stories to financial and consumer Journalists, Producers, and Editors. They will on occasion be required to appear on-air communicating the Moneyfacts brand and unique data to the widest possible audience.

Whilst the role will build upon the already trusted relationships Moneyfacts has with UK journalists, this role requires the post holder to build their own relationships too.

As a spokesperson for the brand this is a hands-on role with duties ranging from researching and writing press releases and content, to being on-air and reporting back to the business about coverage received and successes.

About You

You will be educated to degree level ideally in Journalism or PR or hold a professional qualification and have significant hands on experience of press and public relations preferably in the finance sector.

You’ll bring considerable knowledge in dealing with broadcast, consumer and trade print and online media and will have a track record of developing strong networks of journalistic contacts.

You will have significant demonstrable experience in building and maintaining media relationships in a fast-moving, proactive, and reactive news environment.

Self-motivated and enthusiastic, you’ll be a critical thinker who is able to look at data and stories to pick out key messages to communicate them simply and with ease.

Being pro-active is just as important as process to you, and you’ll be driven by the coverage generated by yourself and the team.

You’ll need excellent written and verbal English skills, an understanding of how nuances can influence communications, able to work under pressure on several priorities at once, and with tight deadlines.

You’ll be great at working with other people and passionate about getting things done.
