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

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

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

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.
