Working with the rest of our in-house creative team, you’ll focus on fresh, new ways to express our brand to wide and varied audiences, from Year 12 students to middle-career changers. That means conceptualising and writing ad copy for social, web, SEM, print, outdoor, radio and video. On top of that, you’ll have ample chance to exercise your long-form writing chops for campaign websites, articles, doco-style video and collateral. Nodding? Read on.

This is you:
• Have several years’ experience as a copywriter or content writer in a medium to large ad agency, digital agency or publisher.
• Have completed a degree in advertising, communications, writing or similar.
• Are a through-the-line thinker. In your portfolio, we want to see omni-channel ad campaign ideas and killer copy in press, outdoor, brochures, social, web and search. Have long-form articles in your book too? Bonus!
• Have conceptualised and written for video and radio, then worked with production teams to bring your ideas to life.
• Understand the fundamentals of SEO and what works in social media.
• Are all about testing and learning, and are ready to dig deep to learn about your audience.
• Don’t just ‘write’. You proactively seek answers before starting a project and present your work engagingly. You see feedback as a challenge to respond with an even better solution.
• It’s a plus if you understand Facebook Ads Manager or can use the Adobe Creative Cloud.
• Manage multiple projects, deadlines and stakeholders without breaking (too much of) a sweat.
