Job Purpose

We're looking for a senior level copywriter to join our team on a maternity cover basis.

This role is largely split into two parts - as a strategic copywriting resource to the business working on ad-hoc and evolutionary projects; and as part of a wider digital team, leading the content creation and direction for a new look and feel website. You'll have to feel comfortable working in a fast-paced environment where priorities are frequently changing and treading the delicate line between working within strict guidelines yet pushing copy ideas.

You will be experienced in writing creative copy for a range of communications (direct mail, brochures, web pages, emails), understand the requirements of different media and be able to demonstrate how your copy has improved marketing effectiveness.

Typical Activities
  • Work closely with the lead digital designer to evolve and optimise website content infrastructure from concept to delivery
  • Write copy for campaigns, landing pages, email, newsletters, brochures, TV scripts, speeches, etc
  • Maintain strong relationships with the strategic and development teams
  • Supporting junior team

Skill set required
  • Copywriting experience in an agency or in-house environment
  • Proven copywriting and direct marketing experience, preferably with a portfolio of your own work to demonstrate
  • Degree educated with a 2:1 or above preferably in an English or Journalism-related degree
  • Flexible and agile in their approach to workload, priorities, and changing business direction
  • An eye for design
  • Proven copywriting experience across multiple communication channels (e.g. print, digital, etc.)
  • A strong sense of initiative and the ability to hit the ground running with a sometimes ambiguous or detail-lacking brief
  • Experience in SEO copywriting is not essential but desirable

C&D are acting as a recruitment agency in relation to this role
