How to apply

Who we’re looking for:

It goes without saying that you’ll need to have a way with words. We’re looking for someone who can write like they talk, someone who can turn content into a conversation and make complicated topics seem easy to understand. But more than that, we’re looking for someone who can use words to drive response.

Ideally, you'll have at least a couple of years experience behind you, the more the better, but our team is growing fast, so we're open to copywriters at any stage of their career. We use a lot of different techniques, but you won’t need to know them all. You do, however, need a willingness to learn, because we believe in continual development at every level.

Experience required:

At least 2+ years experience in a full-time copywriting position.

What you’ll do:

  • Take responsibility for content from brief to go live
  • Write high quality content on a wide range of subjects
  • Use virality, SEO, response marketing and data analysis techniques to drive traffic, engagement and response
  • Create response-driven concepts and campaigns for clients
  • Meticulously research content online, by phone and in person
  • Source images and build content in Wordpress
  • Become a local expert who knows every nook and cranny of the city and the region
  • Use initiative to predict, manage and solve problems on your own
  • Contribute to idea generation to help create new content streams
