Writer/Creative Consultant

We’re looking for a creative consultant to join our busy, fast-growing team in New York. You’ll work on writing and consultancy projects for some of the world’s biggest brands – and a few smaller but no less exciting ones, too. From helping them define their tone of voice, to writing websites, blogs, packaging, chatbot scripts, and everything in between. You’ll be our star trainer, too, designing and running workshops to help people be more effective writers at work.

What kind of person are you?

Like all of us, you’re a bit of a language geek who’s keen to help brands and businesses cut through the corporatespeak and find their voice – and make the world a better place for it.

You’re already a writer who’s worked with brands and businesses. Maybe you’re called a copywriter right now, or a verbal identity associate, or a brand language consultant. What matters is that you have at least two years’ experience in a creative agency or client-side, writing for brands and businesses. Ideally you’ve also worked on meaty consultancy projects, like tone of voice and messaging.

You’re ideally some kind of trainer too. You’re a confident, persuasive and entertaining speaker who can improvise at the drop of a hat. And ideally, you have some experience of running or facilitating workshops.

You can switch between brands’ voices with ease. You’re just as comfortable writing about banking and technology as you are writing about hummus and deodorant.

You’re allergic to brand-speak and corporate jargon. Because why would anyone want to ‘optimize a holistic solution in collaboration with other functions’ when they can just ‘solve a problem together’ instead?

You’re a juggler and multitasker. Jumping from a client call to a presentation and still hitting the deadline for that website that’s going live at the end of the day? You’re not fazed.

You’re insatiably curious. You enjoy getting under the skin of a client’s business. You get a kick out of proving the measurable effects of creative work. And you love digging in to science, mythology or, er, hyperhidrosis blogs to research a project. (And now you want to google hyperhidrosis.)

What will you be doing?

  • You’ll work on all sorts of writing jobs, for all sorts of clients. Sometimes you’ll critique and oversee other writers’ work, too.
  • You’ll do consultancy work where the thinking is as important as a way with words. From tone of voice, to content strategy, to brand messaging.
  • You’ll design and run writing workshops, both virtually and face to face. This could involve traveling to the other side of the city, the country, or even the world.
  • You’ll help make us famous by writing blogs, tweets, case studies and award entries about our work and the difference it makes.

You’ll be joining our small, but mighty New York team. We’re growing fast, so we’ll need you to adapt quickly to new projects as they come in, and help out when things change at the last minute. You’ll report to our US Creative Director. And you'll need authorization to work in the US.
