Senior Creative Copywriter

A bit about who we’re after

We’re looking for a senior creative to work across one of our largest clients and its portfolio of brands.

You’ll need to be able to generate ideas across all digital platforms, with a specific focus on content and social.

You’ll need to be highly motivated, able to work independently at times, at others as part of a team in tandem with the Creative Director, Account Director and Strategy Director.

You’ll need to be an expert copywriter, crafting anything from snappy headlines to long form blog copy and everything in between, and you’ll not be afraid when confronted by the occasional dry and complex brief. While we’re not hiring you for your artistic skills, the ability to scamp is also preferred. You’ll also be strategically-minded, able to interpret client goals and aims and deliver ideas that align to them.

Ideally, you’ll have some experience or knowledge of SEO practices in creating content.

The role will include hands-on creative concepting, supported by Art Directors and the design team, as well as proofing and quality assurance on all copy output, including articles, display, social content and post copy.

You’ll also act as the editor on any other long and shortform-copy.

You’ll be responsible for putting together decks and presenting ideas to clients, then overseeing creative as it moves through production, as well as attending any film or video shoots.

You’ll get rewarded with high fives, a cake on your Birthday and the odd massage for your tired and weary shoulders, as well as the occasional absurdly long client lunch known to last until the wee small hours.

An appreciation of Craft Beer helps.

 

Key Requirements:

  • Creativity - You’re bold and original. You’re definitely not derivative. You’re constantly asking questions and pushing digital boundaries.
  • Copywriting – This is pretty key. You need an excellent grasp of the English language. You need to be able to craft winning sentences, and they’ll need to pack a punch. Short copy, long copy, social posts, microsite subsections, you name it. Oh, and funny missives in Birthday cards are a must.
  • Strategy – You’re a considered thinker, and you like to understand consumer behavior and marrying that with clients’ needs. You appreciate getting under the skin of the ‘why’ because it helps you get to the ‘what’.
  • Art Direction – You’re not an art director, but you have an opinion on design and you’ll be comfortable working with other art directors and designers. You’re And definitely interested in and have opinion about look and feel, typography, illustration, graphic design – you name it. Pictures. How things work. User journeys. That kind of thing.
  • Experience – We’re looking for individuals with around four to six years under their belt.

 

If that sounds like you, then maybe you’re a Waster…
