Job Description

Digital Content Copywriter

12 Month Contract

Reading/ Hybrid working - 1 or 2 days a week in the office.

We are recruiting for a Digital Content Copywriter at a large UK telecoms infrastructure company based in Theale (2 days and remote 3 days). This role is a 12 month contract opportunity.

Background:

We are building something special at Three: an in-house agency that is going to re-energise the brand and take our marketing effort to new heights.

The agency's remit extends beyond comms channels to our web and app platforms, and we need an experienced copywriter with specialist digital experience to join our team.

This role is one of five content copywriters who will sit within the creative team of the IHA, with a dedicated line manager. Day-to-day responsibilities will be carried out within scrum teams. This means collaborating not only with our digital designers, but also with colleagues from UX, development and other digital disciplines. The right candidate will be a high quality practitioner who can provide expert copywriting inputs to the scrum team and produce long and short-form copy which is fluent, enticing and faithful to the brand's Tone of Voice.

Key Responsibilities:

Create the conditions for the success of the in-house agency. Deliver against our creative ambitions for the brand, by working to the In-House Agency's plan for how this will be achieved. Use your specialist digital knowledge and experience, your copywriting abilities and your personality to contribute to the IHA team's goals. Be pro-active at all times: bring energy, share ideas and help make this a team that talented people want to be a part of.

Deliver high quality work. Deliver brand-enhancing copy across all our web and app interfaces, including headlines, body copy, error messages and calls to action. Respond to all briefs with care and apply existing Tone of Voice guidelines diligently to ensure work is 'right first time'. Present work and, where required, construct rationales for the approach you have taken. Be proactive and fully accountable for your deliverables and deadlines.

Collaborate with colleagues: take direction but also be prepared to give it. You will be guided, mentored and directed by your line manager in the copywriting team. However, you will spend much of your time working autonomously with colleagues of different levels as part of project-focused scrum teams. You will take direction well from both your line manager and scrum team leaders, but you will also be the voice of copy within your scrum teams: using your expertise and experience to ensure copy plays a key role in articulating the brand faithfully. It is therefore important to be a good communicator who can express their needs and ideas clearly.

Demonstrate digital leadership within the IHA team and its internal customers. Build strong relationships with the rest of the IHA team, as well as with marketing and other roles that brief the IHA. "Lead from the middle" by helping your colleagues in the IHA and across the business to learn more about the specific needs and opportunities offered by our digital platforms and to pay attention to these when briefing or reviewing work.

Help both the In-House Agency and your Scrum team to run efficiently and effectively Support agreed ways of working, taking direction as appropriate, to work efficiently and effectively. Make good use of systems, tools and processes designed to help you achieve this. Demonstrate respect for all individuals with whom you are collaborating and show due regard for timelines, budgets and other constraints inherent in the brief.

Person Specification:

  • Extensive experience in a digital copywriter role for leading brands
  • A passion for working with an Agile mindset and extensive experience of collaborating as part of Scrum teams
  • A proven track record of delivering distinctive copy for web and app platforms in these teams
