Our Knowledge centre has become a crucial resource for the country's small businesses and landlords, covering everything from news to tax return tips – and it's one of the many reasons our content was read or watched over 16 million times last year.

You'll play an important role in shaping and creating our content – from articles and infographics, to social posts and videos. You'll also create and plan content for our purpose-driven campaigns, that have included our £25,000 Business Boost grant, and Empowering Women in Business with Baroness Karren Brady CBE.

  • make sure all copy is in line with our tone of voice, and act as an ambassador for the Simply Business brand style.

About Simply Business

We insure small businesses and enable big dreams – not just for our customers, but for our people and communities too. With over 900,000 active insurance policies, we protect builders, bakers, landlords, and more than 1,000 other trades.

We’re as much a technology company as one that sells insurance. We build, we fail, we learn, we improve. We’re a B Corp too, which recognises our strong track record of having a positive impact on people, society and the environment.
