We’re Hiring Freelance Writers to Join our Fun and Vibrant Team

We’re on the hunt for talented freelance writers to join our team at Mum Central. If you’re a stellar writer who knows how to engage your audience, plus ideally has experience writing both native and commercial content, we want to hear from you.

This is a contributor role where you can pick and choose the hours and articles you write. We are looking for writers with various tones and areas of expertise, including parenting, cooking, news/trending, home and lifestyle.

If you live and breathe news, can write stories that bring a tear to people’s eyes and even know which celebrities have had a baby or are about to pop, then we’d love to hear from you.

With a highly engaged Facebook community and online network of over 1 MILLION MUMS, together with hundreds of thousands of mums who visit each of our websites monthly, we’re focussed on delivering quality, timely and relevant content for our readers.

With clients of all shapes and sizes, from local brands to global household names, we’re looking for experienced writers to join our team and focus on delivering regular articles and client-specific content.

About our freelance writers

Passionate about content, and wanting to be a part of our stellar team, our freelance writers assist us to write breaking stories and trending content, commercial content as well as beautiful native pieces, during the day (or overnight) so this is perfectly suited to those with kids at home, kinder or school!

Ideally, we’re looking for you to join us for a few hours a day or a week working from home during the day (read: family-friendly).

We want writers that can produce quick, yet well-written copy, have an eye for detail and always deliver on time. Ideally, you will have relevant experience writing native and commercial content and the ability to navigate your way around a content management system (for example, WordPress).

You’ll need impeccable grammar and spelling skills, know your way around WordPress and ideally can write quick and engaging copy as if you’re talking with a friend over coffee!

  • 2-3 years experience as a professional content writer, copywriter or blogger
  • Excellent writing skills and impeccable grammar
  • The ability to work both as part of a team and individually
  • The ability to meet tight deadlines
  • Strong organisational and time-management skills

  • A qualification in Communications, Marketing, Journalism or similar
  • Experience in digital marketing, social media or similar
