Freelance Writer - Fool UK

Contract/Freelance UK, United Kingdom


Freelancer: Motley Fool UK



Love investing? Love to write?


Then you might make a great contributor to our Motley Fool UK freelance team.


The Motley Fool UK freelance team has two goals:

  • To share your sharp analysis and compelling writing with thousands of individual investors.
  • To help you develop your analysis and writing to become a regular contributor.


Our Freelancers are encouraged to build a partnership with our editors and analysts and build expertise in financial analysis, storytelling, and the Foolish writing style that has served as the foundation of our company's success.


We offer a pay structure that is clear, transparent, and, we hope, generous. If you write an article that is thoughtful, well-written, and makes specific and relevant mention of publicly traded companies and their tickers, we’ll publish it and pay you £45 per article. 


As many of our successful freelancers can attest, that might just be a starting point for your relationship with the Fool. There are additional incentives available for top performing writers. And we keep an eye on the best writers and analysts -- those who truly work with us as partners. And that can lead to even bigger things.


If you’re ready to get started, send us a cover letter, resume and click below for directions on how to submit a writing sample. 

As part of your application please submit the following writing sample with your cover letter.

Take a look at our current site ( and send us a writing sample of 300-500 words that you feel would fit in with our style and current mix of articles. Your sample should focus on a top FTSE 350 company, and be interesting, informative, and jargon-free.
