Creative Marketing Copywriter

Ranging from copywriting for B2C and B2B advertising campaigns across print, digital, social, video, and direct to consumer channels, through to creating engaging search optimised content for brand websites, and writing for brochures, content marketing article creation, and beyond, you’ll be the hub of our creative written content.

SHIFT Active Media is looking for a Creative Marketing Copywriter to join our growing team based in Bath.

ABOUT YOU

As Creative Marketing Copywriter, you will be a core member of SHIFT working in the heart of our creative team.

Ranging from copywriting for B2C and B2B advertising campaigns across print, digital, social, video, and direct to consumer channels, through to creating engaging search optimised content for brand websites, and writing for brochures, content marketing article creation, and beyond, you’ll be the hub of our creative written content.

When you’re not writing world class content, you’ll be flexing your creative and organisational muscles managing the creation and delivery of print and digital campaigns, brochures and catalogues.

The role will be varied, highly creative and focused on the following areas:

  • Generating concepts and ideas for marketing campaigns and content
  • Writing copy for a wide range of advertising and marketing purposes
  • Managing the creation of print and digital advertising from concept through to delivery
  • Writing creative briefs and getting the best from internal and external creative suppliers
  • Subbing, proofreading and editing a variety of documents

You will work on projects for some of the most prestigious brands in cycling and triathlon, as part of the the creative team, and alongside our account management and digital teams and creative suppliers. You will be up for the challenge of helping to grow the company in a fast moving, dynamic industry; with your finger on the pulse of media trends and an eagerness to learn, you will be a valuable part of our team.

SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

In short, you will be able to create copy of impeccable quality and be ready to tailor your writing to an array of advertising, marketing and editorial purposes.

You’ll have a long-standing, implicit understanding of cycling and, of course, know its language inside out. Importantly, you’ll be comfortable in communicating its myriad complexities simply and succinctly, know your Boost from your BB386EVO, Gwin from Geraint, and the UCI from the ASO.

You’ll be highly organised and confident scheduling and managing your own workload to meet daily, weekly and monthly deadlines. You’ll know your way around word processing programmes, be that Word, OpenOffice, or Google Docs, and have a meticulous eye for detail; you will also have an excellent knowledge and understanding of print and digital media and production, along with the ability to rapidly absorb and apply new technical information. If you’re confident using InDesign for production editing/page fitting or familiar with uploading content to website CMSs, such as WordPress, that would all be a bonus although not essential.

The successful candidate is likely to have a minimum of 3-4 years of marketing/media experience with a media company and/or agency.
