We are looking for a senior copywriter to spearhead an exciting new, content led project for a high profile financial services client.
This isn’t your standard banking project. You won’t be writing about products and services. Instead, working alongside a team of designers, you’ll be helping to answer some of life’s and societies big questions. Working with existing content and creating new stories that resonate and connect with a wide audience across a range of digital channels and videos.
We are a curious, entrepreneurial bunch. Whilst this will be your main focus initially there will be ample opportunity to contribute to many other projects, pitches and initiatives here.
What you'll be doing
As a senior copywriter, you’ll be expected to display a higher level of craft and expertise, having earned your stripes writing for a wide range of different brands and sectors.
You’ll need to be just as comfortable writing everything from long editorial to pacey headlines to thought-provoking ideas in 140 characters.
Your writing will display a deep understanding of the right tone, rhythm and choice of word, and you won’t rest until you’ve satisfied your own high standards. You find the interesting angle in every brief, and always try to come up with something out of the ordinary.
You can work in any shaped team; on smaller briefs you’re a lone-ranger, on bigger projects you blend brilliantly - be it coming up with the main concept or tone of voice, or mentoring our junior talent.
Above all, you are looking for a new home that can help you produce the best work of your career.
What you should bring
Proven experience as a copywriter, with the ability to produce a high standard of work across a variety of brands, sectors and content-types (preferably in a digital agency)
A compelling portfolio showing your full range of talents and not just commercial work. W e’d love to see any writing you do from blogs to articles and reviews.
You should also be someone that seeks inspiration from anywhere and have a real interest and curiosity for what’s happening in the world and how it can inform your work.
We'd love it if you had...
Existing subject matter expertise is always helpful such as in FMCG, automotive or banking sectors
Experience of not just making things sound great, but researching a topic, coming up with ideas for content, finding the best way to present it to our audience, etc).
Journalism experience – either extra-curricular or professional
