About this role.
We’re looking for an ambitious and passionate English degree or NCTJ-qualified writer to join our team and play an important part in our national and international campaigns. This role will allow you to go beyond copywriting as a skill set. If you’d like
Title: Content Writer Hours: Full-time, Flexitime Location: Hybrid home/office working policy (we are based in the Northern Quarter, Manchester) Salary: £25,000 per annum + £1,800 cost of living bonus, upto 7% annual salary increase after your first full year. Ad-hoc bonuses. Holidays: 31 per year, plus one extra per year
You’ll be working closely with our digital marketing managers and senior digital marketing managers on our client accounts. We run a mix of critical BAU campaigns and exciting creative-led campaigns that lean heavily on paid search and social.
Our clients’ campaigns can be local or global; we’re active in multiple territories and across multiple languages. It’s interesting, challenging and every day is different. If you’re ambitious, a self-learner and want to take on a role with a clear career path then this could be a great fit for you.
We’re a supportive, caring business that wants to get the best out of ambitious people. We ask that our team come into the office for at least two days a month, but in reality, you’re likely to be in the office four days a month. Want to be in the office every day? No problem. Want to avoid travelling for hours on end and WFH? That’s a-ok with us. Spend time at the office and you’ll find a group of smart, thoughtful individuals who support each other.
What makes us different?
We want to get the best out of our team; we have a sensible hybrid-working and flexitime policy that allows you to be in an office when you want but work remotely when it's more sensible. We’re big on training and self-improvement, we have an annual salary increase scheme (up to 7% each year). We have social events, but we don’t enforce socialising. We respect our teams’ work-life balance.
For our clients, the big difference is our approach to strategy. We run discovery and strategy creation workshops, we create strategy playbooks that align with our client's goals then we adjust and optimise based on real-world data. Our campaigns perform better because we dig deep into our client's businesses and their customers, so we understand the buying cycle and our client's customers' pain points.
