Copywriting Jobs

As well as founding, I also helped launch Agora Financial in the UK, which is part of the international publishing group known as The Agora.

Agora Financial UK is one of only a handful of companies in the UK who exclusively use direct response long-form copywriting to market books and newsletters.

For that reason, we’re constantly on the search for smart, intelligent writers who are interested in learning what it takes to become a successful direct response copywriter.

Indeed, it was working with The Agora that I was able to learn my own trade…

Ten years ago I was living in Grimsby making barely enough money to afford cutlery.

Today I live between two properties in London and the east coast of England, take three or four holidays abroad each year and live a contented life of luxury.

Don’t get me wrong…

I don’t drive a Lamborghini. I’m not a millionaire. And I don’t wear posh clothes…

If that’s the lifestyle you’re after, Agora Financial UK probably isn’t for you.

But if you want to become a master of direct response copywriting, discover what it really means to be happy and you want to keep challenging yourself to improve on a daily basis…

This might be the ideal opportunity for you.

What you get from Agora Financial UK

EXPERT INSIGHT – You’ll receive hands on training from some of the best copywriters in the world. You’ll have the opportunity to travel to the US, as well as Europe, to spend time with experts in the field, all ready to help you hone your skills and succeed.

FINANCIAL REWARDS – You’ll receive a percentage of every net sale you make for the company. Write a breakthrough sales promotion for Agora that goes worldwide and you could bank a bonus in excess of most people’s salary.

JOB SECURITY – You’ll receive an annual retainer and a comprehensive pension package to make sure you’re comfortable and not living the stressful and anxious life of a freelancer who doesn’t know when their next payday might be.

PERSONAL FREEDOM – You’ll be given the trust to work on your own terms, when and where you want. We believe it’s better to have a happy, content and motivated writer working freely than a bored, uninspired one chained to a beige desk.

What Agora Financial UK needs from you

IDEAS – A good copywriter lives and dies by their ideas. We expect a relentless desire to think about things in new ways. You need to have a thick skin too and the understanding that to uncover a one great idea, you might need to have a thousand bad ones.

DEDICATION – If you’re just looking for a steady 9-5 job, this is not for you. As an Agora copywriter you need to want to achieve everything yesterday. There should be urgency in your execution and excitement in everything you do. Even the idea of a 9-5 mentality should make any good copywriter laugh.

DRIVE – Submitting your copy is never the end of the road in Agora. You should be eager to follow everything you write through to every stage of the business as to understand how each area fits in with the message you’re delivering. In a highly competitive environment, you should always be pushing for your ideas to be heard.

How to get in touch

If you think you have what it takes to become an Agora copywriter and are interesting in joining the company, you should send an email to containing three things:

1. The single best example of your copywriting

2. 500 words of copy attempting to sell me a suit

3. Details of the last three books you read and what you learned from them

If you fail to send any of those things, or send more than those things, you will likely be ignored.

Otherwise, we will reach out to anyone who we think could be a good fit and arrange a time to talk some more.
