So, who are we?
Copywriters is a 40-strong copywriting collective based in Collingwood
and peppered right across the globe. Two-thirds of us have worked in the
world's top advertising agencies, and the rest have made their mark
(and continue to do so) by drawing inspiration from previous chapters of
their life such as environmental science, naturopathy, architecture,
law, music and much more. We've worked with global design agencies,
boutique branding teams and gung-ho start-ups that are defining their
own categories. We've wowed clients with brand stories and taglines, and
smashed world records with crowdfunding campaigns. There's almost
nothing we haven't written for or about. And we devour new challenges
like coyotes in the desert (just with much better manners). Our next
biggest challenge is a company re-brand, and we'll relish your help in
pushing it forward.
The nitty gritty
is a full-time role on a three-month contract to start. Show us what
you're made of to make this thing permanent. Salary will be considered
alongside the prowess you're bringing - and is just the starting point.
Your wage is in your hands from there on out.
Does this sound like you? If so, send your CV and cover letter to us.
we like what we see, you'll be asked to complete a personality test
(which you'll take great pleasure in), a sample brief to demonstrate
that strategic mind of yours, and a group interview so we can see how
you play with others. You bring your A-game; we'll bring the caffeine.
If you really do have a story about tequila in Texas, you have just elevated yourself to 'kindred spirit' status.
