Hi, we’re Penfold
Penfold is building the pension of the future. We’re dragging the multi-trillion pound pension industry out of the dark ages. Think about how challenger banks have changed banking. We’re demystifying pensions to make them universally accessible, engaging and exciting so we can help everyone save enough for later life.
We have over £15 million in funding and are backed by some of the world’s most successful fintech investors & entrepreneurs.
We are an FCA regulated pension provider, offering tens of thousands of consumers a totally digital pension experience via our mobile app, helping hundreds of businesses run their workplace pension, and tracking down hundreds of millions of pounds in lost pension pots for all our customers.
We’re looking for a creative and resourceful PR/Communications Manager to manage and deliver Penfold’s PR programme and campaigns to generate awareness for Penfold through compelling storytelling across a wide range of media outlets. The ideal candidate will have experience working with financial services brands either in-house or from an agency and great media connections with money and personal finance journalists.
They will be able to combine this knowledge of the media landscape with a keen eye for a great story and be comfortable working cross-functionally to hone and develop compelling press releases and campaign ideas to get Penfold noticed. The role will also support the Head of Brand Marketing in amplifying our events programme via PR and industry relations.
Skills and experience:
We’re working hard to create a working environment where people feel empowered to do their very best work, make a big impact and enjoy what they do.
Right now, we’re still a small team, but we’re well-funded and growing rapidly. As one of our first 50 employees you’ll not only have a huge say in defining our culture & what it’s like to work here, but you’ll have uncapped opportunities for progression, learning and
exposure to different areas of the business.
Specifically, our benefits package includes:
We’re a remote-first business although we have a large private office at Uncommon Borough, a large co-working space full of other awesome tech start-ups and more plants than a garden centre.
As part of our marketing team, we will need you to spend at least one day per week in the office with the rest of the team to ensure effective collaboration and opportunities for creative ideas to flourish.
We’re 6 minutes walk from London Bridge station & Borough Market (and 30 seconds walk from Borough station).

We’ll have a very quick introductory call to properly introduce you to Penfold, find out more about your experience and make sure you get a chance to ask any questions.
Then they’ll be a take home task, so we get a better feel for how you work.
Finally, we’ll organise a session with one of our Co-Founders and a small group of people from around the business.
We are 100% committed to building a diverse and representative team.
