THE OPPORTUNITY



We seek a versatile midweight writer with a creative heart to join as our Writing manager.


 


WHO WE ARE...



We are the DMA Group. We represent the UK’s thriving data and marketing industry and champion the causes of the brightest agencies, bravest brands and most exciting tech and marketing innovators at work today.


 


This is a thrilling time for any creative to join us as we sit on the cusp of an extensive re-brand that will revolutionise the business head-to-toe - and you'll be a key driver in that change.


 


YOUR PROFILE



You will have the chops to wow and move one of the toughest audiences you’ll ever encounter – fellow marketing creatives. Your work will need to speak to a CEO one minute and a junior creative team the next.



Bring the know-how and confidence to work under your own steam, and contribute your ideas to a passionate creative team and meet frequent deadlines.



You’ll be comfortable leading the writing outputs across the DMA brand and our four key campaign areas; acting as the guardian for brand tone of voice; prove a stout defender of writing standards across our outputs.



And you’ll juggle all this alongside responsibility of a direct report, managing and working closely with a junior writer.



Key knowledge areas and skills:



Day in, day out, you’ll craft electrifying copy that sells events, products and services to people who eat, drink and breathe marketing.



Here’s what we want from you
• 4+ years industry experience
• Experience in producing creative and conceptual work, from one-off pieces to campaign thinking
• Experience writing copy across diverse formats: article copy, email copy, social media
• Experience writing long and short copy, and in report writing and editing
• Experience working with a CMS is preferable but not essential
• Experience managing other team members is preferable 
• Some experience in writing for PPC is a bonus
