Provenance is using tech to power the transparency movement – helping brands bring their supply chain and the social and environmental impact behind products to shoppers, enabling more conscious, fair, and low-impact consumption. We are looking for a digital communications executive with excellent copywriting skills and an eye for good design to join our growing team working across our brand and retailer clients and on the Provenance brand.

The Role

Working with Provenance clients (consumer goods brands and retailers) to enable them to be transparent on the impact behind their brand and products in an engaging way. This role requires a creative, organised and proactive person with some basic design skills and excellent writing and communication skills. You will work with brands to write copy and create digital assets using the Provenance transparency software tools and also work directly with brands teams on content for other channels and experiences.

When not working with our clients, you’ll work across the Provenance team on communications. This will mainly involve working on Provenance brand communications with our marketing team, which will include idea generation, copywriting and execution of assets for our website, case studies, blog, newsletter and social media. You will also assist our content strategist with writing for our product and help to create support documentation for customers using our product.

We are also accepting Freelance applications!

  • Copywriting for brand and retailer clients on the social and environmental impact behind their brand and products across various digital channels and activations
