Mid-Level Advertising Copywriter

0 people like this description

Are you looking for a full time opportunity as a Copywriter?

Our local Portland client is in search of an inspired Writer of the advertising persuasion. You really must love
the craft of translating a strategy into an idea, a line, an approach, a few paragraphs, a singular
provocative thought that connects with an audience and changes the course of their day for that
moment. Ideally you get that words don’t work alone, but are delivered best with design and
visual ideas. And you can think, create, and ideate with them in mind, too.

You must have examples of your ability to define a concept and bring it to life—by script, or
copy, or visual direction—across a wide variety of channels: online (from simple banner ads, to
complete web site experiences), print, tv, video shorts, even radio.

NOTE: Of particular interest to us is your experience with longer form internal videos—so called
“sales” or “marketing” videos. Show us how moving those can be. (They are the internal
expression of a brand, every bit as important as a more widely seen expression of that brand.)
We are huge believers in brands with voice. With heart. With an ability to connect emotionally
with a human audience vs relying on gags, or spectacles, or good-enough. And all of that has to
come from somewhere—and someone. Just like you.

And all that above? You’re familiar and even okay with the pace at which all this work happens.
Sometimes super-balling from one project, or part of a project, to something completely different
that calls for an entirely other train of thought or perspective.

Must be brimming with initiative and self-starterness. You’re part of a team, you rely on your
team, and your team is relying on you. You’re as responsible and accountable as you are
brilliant and never-endingly capable.

Copywriter with 5-6+ years experience in advertising, with an
amazing knack to generate ideas and spin them into all of the cool new communications
platforms we have at our disposal, please apply.

You should be super-organized and love doing research to make your copy ring true to your
clients’ needs. You are not afraid to speak up in front of your peers or your clients.
