I am currently undertaking a project on the topic of basic financial literacy in superannuation.
I am looking for a switched on, web-savvy individual to assist me:
1) Undertake in-depth research on the internet (including but not limited to public forums, blogs, chatrooms, and social media forums) to identify and capture common questions and issues faced by Australians. You will be required to research, collate and categorise the questions people ask (further details on the categories I'm using will be provided on commencement of work). As an example of some of the questions we're looking for:
- "How do I know what risk profile I am?"
- "What is a superannuation option / product? And which one am I supposed to pick?"
- "I work in the health industry. Why can't I switch to a different super fund?"
2) Review a suite of existing journals and papers relating to financial literacy and superannuation. These will be provided to you for review, with a similar requirement of identifying and capturing the categories of questions / issues experienced by Australians.
This is a short term engagement, commencing Monday 1 August and ending Friday 5 August. I am looking for someone locally based in Australia and thus will have a natural understanding of the types of forums that are more likely to be frequented by Australians.
Financial experience is *not* required however a high degree of english literacy is, as you will be asked to review papers developed by universities.
The ideal candidate is someone who possesses a strong work ethic, pays close attention to detail. You should possess an independent and inquisitive nature, as you will be required to proactively find and assess new websites or chat forums in which questions are being asked.
