Hi, I’m Russ, the founder of PropertyWorkshop.com
I’ve been obsessed with UK property for over ten years. Most recently, I completely renovated a small buy-to-let flat in Cardiff that hadn’t been touched since the early 80s! This experience, along with refurbishing my own house one year earlier, has inspired me to share my knowledge with others.
Are you also obsessed with renovating UK property? Do you spend more time in B&Q and Wickes than in your own home? Do you get excited about using the latest power tool you just bought?
If you answer ‘YES!’ to all of the above AND you also love writing & blogging, please read on...
PropertyWorkshop.com (PWS) is a UK-based home improvement blog that creates ‘how to’ guides, tool reviews and cost estimates for a wide range of projects. We also blog about energy-efficient homes and property investment.
Our goal is to provide readers with all the information, skills, and confidence they need to transform their home on a budget. We achieve this goal by publishing informative and engaging content that is easy to follow.
Who We’re Looking For
PWS is building a team of home improvement fanatics! More precisely, we're looking for native English writers, ideally from the UK, who have DIY experience.
What We’re Looking For
Initially, we’ll require one or two 1,000-3,000-word articles per week, but this will ramp up significantly as the site grows.
Most posts will be in-depth and original ‘how-tos’, product reviews and cost guides. All articles must be informative and engaging.
There are also optional opportunities for writing guest posts for other blogs (either in your own name or ghostwriting) and responding to HARO queries on a daily basis.
We also expect our writers to promote articles they've written on their social media profiles/blogs.
What You Can Expect From Me
You'll be assigned topics by myself and given a submission deadline. It's quite likely that in the first couple of weeks there will be a lot of feedback and editing required, but once you get into the swing of things, this part should be minimal.
Please note that we only require our writers to write the content. No web formatting or design is needed.
It’s important to note that we have very high editorial standards compared to most other blogs. Every post we publish goes through our strict editorial process where we check all claims and ideas for accuracy. Our readers need to trust us, so we must produce high-quality content.
Our budget is around $50-150 per week for 1x 1,000-3,000-word articles. So please bid based on delivering 1 x 1,000-3,000-word articles. Apologies for the wide range, but articles will vary quite a bit in size.
- Must have 2+ years of writing experience
- Must provide examples of home improvement related articles
- Competitive freelance rates
- Consistent workload
- Flexible deadlines
- Opportunity to advance within a high-performing team
- Option to grow name recognition by writing on other high-quality blogs (Guest Posts and HARO)
- Gain valuable DIY knowledge

P.S. As PWS is a fast-growing and ambitious site, there’s potential to move into an editor/managerial role as the site grows and we hire more writers
