Due to continued growth, Storm are looking for a Creative Copywriter with a passion for research and writing, able to think both strategically and laterally to come up with great ideas, carry out background research and articulate themselves across a range of different writing styles for our clients.

You’ll need to be a problem solver, able to turn business challenges into opportunities and create mind-blowing work. You’ll need to make the mundane sound magnificent, turn long-winded technical talk into easily digestible bites and weave creativity and wit into everything you do.

We never create content just for the sake of it and everything we do has a purpose, so you’ll need to have a strategic mind that’s able to understand how/where your content will be used, the different audience demographics you’re communicating with and the intended goal/commercial outcome required.

Grammar, spelling and knowledge of the English language needs to be second-to-none, with impeccable attention to detail. Your writing style will need to be adaptable, able to turn large amounts of information into short, snappy and engaging content on one project, while on another you’ll need to create long-form copy that retains the readers’ interest.

Whether you’re a graduate or a seasoned copywriter/journalist, if you have a passion for content and really ‘get’ copywriting, we want to hear from you. We would expect you to be able to demonstrate your copywriting skills and passion for writing with your own blog/site, supported by real examples of the different styles of content you can produce.

You’ll be an integral part of our content team, expected to adapt your writing style across a range of mediums and deliver high quality content on brief and in a timely manner.

You will be expected to work on:
• Brochures
• Websites
• Advertising Campaigns
• Email Campaigns
• Branding and Naming
• SEO Implementation
• Scripts for Videos/Animations
• Articles
• Straplines
• Landing Pages
• Proofing

You will need to:
• Provide examples that demonstrate your work
• Be a lateral thinker
• Have a strategic and commercially-minded approach
• Manage your time effectively and keep to deadlines
• Be open to constructive criticism
• Have a hunger to develop your writing skills
• Have excellent attention to detail
• Have a strong work ethic
• Thrive in a fast-paced environment
• Keep cool under pressure
• Bring new ideas to the table

We would also like you to:
• Have relevant experience in a similar role
• Have an understanding of writing for SEO
