  • Assist with new business pitches, including message development and creating copy content for presentations.
  • Liaise with our Client Services team to ensure that all copy content meets both the client’s expectations and their company brand guidelines.
  • Take responsibility for multiple tasks, projects and priorities to ensure that they are all delivered on time, on budget, and to the highest possible standard.

Technical skills & experience

  • Excellent grasp of the English language is essential, including exceptional spelling, grammar and punctuation.

  • Experience in creating consistent and distinctive copy styles for each communication and the ability to revise or redevelop existing campaign copy.
  • Confidence in communicating ideas and delivering compelling copy content across print, digital and social media.

  • An ability to combine strategic thinking with tactical creativity and flair to make complex propositions simple and easy to understand.
  • Knowledge of working within the parameters of large corporate tone and voice guidelines to create campaign copy that can be easily localised for other language markets.
  • A positive ‘can-do attitude’, plus the ability to work quickly under pressure, with constant attention to detail, whilst always striving to produce the highest standard of work.
