You are here because of your ability to think and influence.

We believe talent comes in many shapes and sizes and that the most talented people want to work with the most talented people.

We are a team. We are accountable, we are competitive, but not at each other’s expense.

We learn together, we create together, we win together.

We hire on potential, reward on results.

And, value people that do it all with a smile. 

Purpose of Position: 

As a Senior Copywriter, you are the great communicator. It is your task to take a clients’ business problem and create a solution that not only communicates the key facts to the reader in a clear and concise manner – but also in an unconventional and resounding way.

Whatever medium you are in, you must cut-through every other communication and inform, entertain or create news appeal in such a way as to actively engage the reader and force them through a compelling argument to act.

Do this successfully, time after time, and your main role as copywriter has been done. 

About the Role: 

We’re looking for an experienced and very Senior Copywriter to work alongside an awarded and experienced Senior Art Director.

Together, you will work and collaborate with all members of the agency. You will manage multiple projects from conception to completion and ensure all members are involved and no detail is missed.

Right now, you’re at the peak of your powers. You’re as passionate about landing the powerful idea as you are about communicating it. You’re equally comfortable in a new business pitch situation as you are writing television scripts or media-neutral ideas of all sizes.

Skills and Experience:

  • Build an open, honest and trusting relationship with your creative partner, the creative team, the strategy team, the account management team, and all other internal business units
  • Be absolutely dedicated to write creative and effective copy for all our major clients
  • Contribute to the winning of new business based on the power of a big idea
  • Help lead a mixed discipline agency team in developing and delivering the highest standard creative product for all our clients
  • Contribute to the winning of creative awards with big ideas for big clients
  • Be a role model, a mentor and a leader to younger creatives and the agency at large
  • Be comfortable with taking initiative, working independently to anticipate and identify opportunities and solve problems as they arise
  • Working collaboratively with the team at large to ensure creative ideas are brought to life the best way possible
  • Ensure the continuous progression of work by building strong relationship with all core disciplines – media, production, planning and creative.
