Job Description:

 

My client, a multi-national company specialising in the production, distribution, and provision of household healthcare and personal care are on the hunt for a new remote-working, freelance copywriter! My client does all things digital for a range of brands – and there are plenty of them.

You will be working with one other writer, a Content Studio Coordinator and sometimes designers, but your direct line contact will be the Digital and eCommerce Lead for Europe.

What does a usual day look like:

You could start your day writing SEO optimised product descriptions for retailer websites (gotta stick to those character counts) and could end with writing an article about the differences between antiperspirant and deodorant, or even personal hygiene.

You’ll also get the opportunity to make your mark writing copy for various brands’ websites. Sometimes you’ll write for our social channels and the odd bits and bobs that come in, too.

 

The type of copywriter we’re looking for:

  • A chameleon – you’ll be working across many different brands so you’ll need to be able to adapt to a different tone of voice at a moment’s notice.
  • Someone with SEO experience – almost everything we do is SEO optimised to help build our brands and drive organic traffic, so you’ll need to know how to weave in keywords seamlessly.
  • Storyteller – bringing our brands to life through our product descriptions, articles and websites takes engaging stories. They paint a picture, not only of who we are, but also who our consumers are.
  • Hawk eyes – this should go without saying, but you’ll need to have an eye for detail… and grammar… and spelling. It all upholds the reputation of our brands in every bit of copy you write.
  • Comfortable with long and short copy – as we mentioned there’s loads of different copy that needs to be written – from very short product descriptions to much longer articles and website content, so you’ll need to have a love for both.
  • A self-starter – we hate that phrase. No one really knows what it means. But… what we mean by it is that a lot of the time you’re going to be left to crack on with the wonderful words you’ll write, and manage your workload and expectations with our Content Studio Coordinator. We don’t believe in micromanaging, so we’ll expect you to get stuck in and be proactive when it’s needed. However, we’re always on hand to help when you need it.
  • Play nicely with others – even if we say so ourselves, we’re a great, happy team and we all work really well together. We want someone who’ll be an extension of that and someone who’s, quite frankly, lovely.
  • Someone who keeps up with admin – the dreaded ‘a’ word for any creative. Don’t worry, there’s not tons of it. You’ll need to update various spreadsheets and documents, which have to be done as you work.
  • Proven experience – all this means is that you should have at least 6 years’ copywriting experience and a great portfolio of work that you can share with us and, preferably with some similar work in other beauty or pharma sectors.

Now, the big question: does this sound like you and something you’d love to be part of? If it is, get in touch. claireblasi@aquent.com
