Do you have a passion for words and a razor-sharp eye for detail? We need someone like you to help deliver our clients core editorial and creative content work.

Award winning design and branding agency is looking for Senior Writer/Editor for their friendly team near Tower Bridge.

We're on the hunt for someone who is as comfortable whipping a lengthy technical report into shape as they are translating an unwieldy client brief into concise, sparkling brand messaging or crafting a blog post from scratch.

The role will involve:

  • Delivering high-quality copy, both long-form and short, across a range of business and technology subject areas
  • Developing and writing content for websites, brochures, white papers, case studies, social media commentary, internal communications, advertising, proposals and presentations
  • Playing a lead role in concept and copy development for creative assets, as part of larger-scale branding projects, campaign development and other advertising activities
  • Playing a lead role in brand strategy projects by engaging in research, stakeholder interviews, messaging workshops and report development
  • Taking lead editorial responsibility for a high-profile client project, working closely with account managers, designers and proofreaders to produce a series of word-perfect, engaging reports
  • Researching and contributing considered and thought-provoking content for publication via the agency blog and social media channels
  • Playing a lead role in client presentations and consistently demonstrating the ability to sell an idea, respond to questions and communicate the agency's point of view
  • Crafting tone of voice and messaging guidelines
  • Helping to shape and deliver content and communications strategies
  • Editing and/or proofreading documents to defined style standards
  • Managing copy iterations and keeping appropriate records of all changes
  • Staying up to date with all relevant style and editorial guidelines
  • Demonstrating expertise in our clients' businesses through diligent research
  • Assisting in new business efforts, as appropriate, working in conjunction with other staff (including senior management and external agency partners)
  • Actively sharing content/strategy best practice within the Content and Strategy team - and across the wider agency as appropriate

The successful candidate will:

  • Have exceptional writing, editing and communication skills
  • Have a proven track record (five years plus) of producing well-researched, insightful, creative and analytical copy in a B2B agency or editorial environment
  • Demonstrate the ability to combine editorial discipline with tactical creativity and flair
  • Exhibit exceptional attention to detail and dedication to quality
  • Understand and appreciate the role of branding in business success
  • Enjoy applying his or her skills and experience to new challenges and opportunities: i.e. be able to “go deep” and become an expert on topics and markets that may be unfamiliar
  • Be digitally fluent, bright, organised, detail-oriented, self-motivated and collaborative, and be proactive in engaging with all agency, partner and client representatives
  • Enjoy working in a collaborative environment
