Contently Is Hiring Finance Writers in Quebec

By Dillon Baker April 20th, 2016

In the name of helping freelancers find work, we’re now occasionally posting gig openings at Contently, our parent company. Contently works with brand clients to help them create content marketing—basically editorial work, except for a brand instead of a publisher. A good example is The Red Bulletin, Red Bull’s popular extreme sports magazine.

The hope is that everyone benefits: You, our readers, will be first in line for high-paying jobs, and Contently can draw from a wide, high-quality base of freelancers.

This week, we’re looking for French-Canadian writers. French-speaking is needed most, but bi-lingual is best; English-speaking writers should also feel free to apply. Expertise in one or many of the following categories is required:

  • Institutional finance
  • Small business
  • Economic trends
  • Mortgages, renovations, loans (and the Quebec real estate marketing generally)
  • Personal banking

Clips in one or many of the following publications are highly desired:

  • La Presse
  • Les Affaires
  • Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph
  • Canadian Business

The pay is competitive, and there are a couple of different formats clients are looking for:

  • Rates begin at $380 for blog posts, which are generally 300-500 words.
  • Rates for reported articles, generally 400-700 words, are $575.

If you haven’t worked with Contently before, here’s the basic gist:

  • Our platform pays you instantly upon submission; in other words, no waiting around for checks.
  • There’s no obligation to accept assignments.
  • Our talent team and managing editors will support you throughout the process.
  • Our clients are all major brands, and should be good additions to your portfolios.

If you’re interested, here’s how to apply:

1. Register with Contently by creating a free Contently portfolio.

2. Send your portfolio URL and a short summary about your experience to our talent team for evaluation. You can also fill out the embedded form at the bottom of this post.
