Senior Copywriter (Brand and Advertising) – Leeds – £40-55k
Well-respected brand marketing agency, based in central Leeds, is looking for a Senior Copywriter to join their team and help lead the copy output.
This role offers a great deal of variety and creativity. The agency only takes on significant branding projects and they lead the creative process (they rarely work from pre-set guidelines and usually create the guidelines themselves). Working with the creative studio, alongside a team of art directors, designers, artworks and another writer, you will be generating concepts for a wide range of brands (from fashion, consumer, corporate, and anything that falls in between), and also a wide range of tactics (from advertising, to print, to online, video, and even TV occasionally), helping bring your ideas to life by working with the rest of the studio team. In many cases you will be crucial in helping build new brands from scratch and, given your seniority, you will be helping lead the overall creative output.
You will be a truly conceptual Copywriter, with an advertising or design agency background. You will have a creative portfolio that really showcases your talent for both clever straplines and beautifully crafted copy. You will be used to working alongside an art director, as part of a traditional creative team, but also be comfortable working autonomously on a copy-focussed project. You will, naturally, come from an agency-side background, having worked on consumer-facing brands, and be experienced at client-facing communication, and working with the client on creative strategy. You will have an infinity for branding and brand development, able to create the perfect tone of voice and ‘opinion’ for each client. Please note that writers from PR, SEO, content or direct marketing backgrounds will not be considered – this is an advertising writer role and experience of high-end conceptual brand campaigns is a must.
