Copy Writer (Mat cover)
Job posted: 25/03/2020
Type: Maternity cover
Punctual, punchy and to the point.
This might sound like something lifted out of your CV, but it’s also something you’ll be familiar with when writing copy.
It can be hard to come up with new ideas, lines that describe but also entice and something you’ve not seen before – but when it’s your job, you enjoy the challenge of it all.
When you work in a comms/marketing or content role for an agency or inhouse brand, you learn to speak with their voice, mimic their tone and craft compelling copy to help them sell. It’ll sit on both offline and online channels (and social media – obviously), so having a clear understanding of the difficulties which come along with both will be key.
You’ll spend your day taking briefs, interpreting them into original ideas and creating something new for the brand. It’ll be for both the UK and US audience, so having an awareness of the UK audience will be incredibly beneficial.
You’re joining a retail brand, and retail is seasonal. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Christmas Day mean there’s going to be a lot going on. And with a lot going on, comes a lot of deadlines and some quick turnarounds.
Since this role is creative, we’d love to see some examples of your writing and we’re sure you’d love to show yours off.
You get a salary of £25,000, which you may end up spending a chunk on the companies’ products thanks to their hefty staff discount. You’ll start with 25 days holiday, but with each year you’ll get an extra day up until 33.
