Point 6 is looking for a junior copywriter to join our expanding team and contribute towards its ongoing success.
A little bit about us: we’re a West London-based, integrated design and branding agency; we partner with brands that make a difference in the world to communicate their deep, complex expertise. We work with clients in the UK, EU and US, and are proud to be their perceptive partners, asking the right questions, challenging briefs, and getting to the core of each message or campaign.
This is an amazing opportunity for a commercially focused and talented junior writer looking to grow their career in a creative, friendly, collaborative and highly respected agency.
The role will involve learning about our clients’ worlds and writing persuasively about them. On any given day you may find yourself writing about how smart technology benefits shoppers, the benefits of systems integration via the Internet of Things, or crafting a global press release.
Your writing will take the form of social posts, websites, online thought pieces, presentations, animation scripts, brochures and more. You’ll work with complex — often technical — source material to create clear and engaging on-brand content for a wide range of digital and print campaign materials.
Working in a motivated and close-knit team of talented creatives, designers and production experts, you’ll also learn to play a role within our agency team of brand guardians — often supporting non-native English speakers in our clients’ teams with guidance on copy.
You’ll be a self-motivated, versatile and aspiring junior writer who will thrive in what is an empowering and, at times, self-managing role. You’ll also get support and guidance from our lead copywriter, as well as the rest of our highly experienced team.
You’ll be capable of balancing multiple projects and deadlines, and proactively managing your own time.
A desire to write for a professional audience is essential, as well as an appetite for learning how best to write succinct, on-brand communications within well-defined guidelines. You’ll be client-friendly and be happy to discuss projects with clients both on the phone and face-to-face.
- Educated to degree level or equivalent (preferably in a communications-related discipline)
- Proven writing ability — at least one year’s experience of copywriting
- A keen eye for detail and a strong understanding of grammar
- Proficiency with Microsoft Office, particularly Word and PowerPoint
- The ability to work independently and within a team
- Strong communication skills are essential — face-to-face, over Zoom/Teams, and via email
- Experience of writing in US English is an advantage, but not essential
Starting salary: £22,000
