Creative Copywriter

0 people like this description

Our client needs a Creative Copywriter. And we mean: really creative. The copywriter will work with Art Directors and other creative team members to come up with concepts that help clients accomplish their objectives in a way that’s effective and original. This means someone not just good with words but also good with ideas and experiences. You'll do some pure copywriting as needed but you’ll do even more brainstorming, bouncing new ideas off of other team members and asking “What if?” We're not looking for the Grammar Police; we've got that already. We're looking for somebody who can put their storytelling power to work for our clients.

Specifically, your day will include:

Brainstorming fearlessly with Art Directors and other team members to help develop effective concepts and creative approaches that help clients win
Coming up with THE BIG IDEA
Writing consistently clear, original and persuasive copy for print, web, mobile, social media, outdoor, broadcast, direct marketing and other formats—all with an eye toward delivering results
Meeting with clients as required
Completing assignments on deadline; sometimes on very tight deadline
Juggling multiple assignments of varying nature and priority
Interfacing with designers in developing appropriate graphics and formats that will enhance the message and heighten response/performance
Working with strategy team and others to create or refine messaging strategies—then extend those strategies across multiple brands and experiences
Performing all of the basic administrative things that professional creatives do such as enter timesheets, attend production meetings, etc.

Requirements

3+ years of copywriting at an advertising or marketing agency
Experience with concept development and brainstorming
(must be able to talk through your thought process with examples)
A portfolio of creative work showcasing your creative ideas
The discipline and work ethic to create great work time and again
An understanding of basic marketing, branding and advertising principles
Ability to adhere to project deadlines, mandatories and parameters
Must know the difference between marketing copy and editorial copy
Must be able to maintain a consistent voice for clients across multiple touchpoints

Able to manage stressful situations well, stay organized and put in extra hours when needed

Bachelor’s degree in advertising, communications, marketing or a related discipline.
