Mid-weight Creative (Copywriter and a bit of Art Direction)

Are you good with words? I mean, really good with words? Do you love language? Can you elicit smiles, stoke emotional fires, communicate succinctly and bulls-eye messages?

Have you got a deep understanding and love of all things digital, beyond emojis and Snapchat filters?

Can you conceive of and generate good, original ideas, then articulate them with clarity? Can you get people excited by them?

Are you hungry to grow and learn and be part of a team of truly talented individuals from a multitude of disciplines who share a love of cake?

If that sounds like you, then maybe you’re perfect for this agecny

The agency is looking for a Digital Creative to join their burgeoning London team and work across a multitude of exciting clients. You’ll be part copywriter, part conceptual creative. You’ll need a good knowledge of social, display, rich interactive and mobile platforms. You’ll need the patience of a saint when clients dismiss your carefully crafted words with derision.

Key Requirements:

Creativity - You’re bold and original. You’re definitely not derivative. You’re constantly asking questions and pushing the digital boundaries
because you know no better. You’re interested in lots of different stuff and seek to expose yourself to ‘new’ at all times.

This is pretty key. You need an excellent grasp of the English language. You need to be able to craft winning sentences, and they’ll need to pack a punch. You need to be able to toggle between communicating why people might need a boiler, to why they should level up their barbarian horde, because we have diverse clients. Short copy, long copy, social posts, microsite subsections, you name it. Oh, and funny missives in Birthday cards are a must.

Art Direction – You’re not an art director, it’s OK. But you definitely have a creative outlook. It would help if you could scamp, however badly. And you’re definitely interested in and have opinion about look and feel, typography, illustration, graphic design – you name it. Pictures. How things work. User journeys. That kind of thing.

Experience –We’re looking for individuals with around four years under their belt. You’ve been around the block a little, but your feet aren’t killing you yet kind of thing. You’ve got some agency experience, probably freelanced a bit, maybe been a bit burnt by big sweatshops where you can’t get your work made and want to go somewhere where your idea can be realized and in front of an audience within a week. Believe it.

And the following traits and capabilities are a must:

- You have the ability to work simultaneously on multiple accounts, within a wide range of sectors

- You’re a wizard at Word, proficient at Pages, or can at least use Notepad ffs

- You’ve heard of PowerPoint and know it is jealous of Keynote

- You enjoy gaming, films, television box sets, music, and other examples of High Culture

- You dabble with code, fiddle with Photoshop or at the very least, you’re active on social media

- You’re enthusiastic, responsible, positive and diligent at all times, except Monday mornings

- You have an appreciation of Craft Beer
