With a best-selling book, and daily media commitments a mile long, the time has come for Scott Pape, the Barefoot Investor to have his own dedicated full-time content producer.
Working directly with the Barefoot Investor himself, founder Scott Pape , we’re looking for an experienced, energetic, passionate producer, preferably with radio, television and social experience, who can work shoulder-to-shoulder with Scott, preparing him for the dozens of interviews, articles, podcasts, and social interactions he has daily.
You don’t need to be a finance major -- that’s Scott’s domain. However it is a non-negotiable that you have a passion for the Barefoot message, know it intimately, and be able to produce and turn around content at break-neck speed.
This position is fast paced … Scott is fast paced … And you need to stay one step ahead, so you’ll need loads of energy, and a high attention to detail.

- Writing a Q&A column (you select the questions, edit them down, provide them to Scott to answer).
- A video for our own platform (you script out the content, brief Scott, edit the video, and then post the content).
- Then, you’ll review the radio interviews from the morning, edit the best one, and post it to Facebook.
In fact, there’s no such thing as a typical morning at Barefoot, our ideal candidate needs to be nimble and flexible, ready to adapt to changes on the fly and get things done.
You’ll be in the trenches, helping Scott develop amazing content (on our own platforms and in the mass media), every single day. We have a hugely passionate fan base, this is about leveraging Scott’s time so that we can get more content out to our audience.

Minimum 3-5 years experience in TV/radio producer role.
An interest in financial education and familiarity with the Barefoot Investor principles and content
Excellent communication skills.

Ability to work autonomously and plan workload effectively - highly organised with strong attention to detail.
