Creative Copywriter

Location: Peoria, IL

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Attention storytellers, word nerds and grammar police. Simantel is assiduously seeking a Creative Copywriter able to leave audiences filipendulous on your every word. You must have a predilection for the big idea and the ability to proselytize others to your way of thinking. In other words, you are a modern day Seshat. If you had to look up a word or two, all is not lost. We concede that filipendulous is obscure if not completely outmoded.


Stuff you'll do:

  • Think big, simplify, twist and turn ideas until they come to life as amazing experiences for the intended audiences
  • Be able to understand complex concepts and then communicate them in a simplified manner
  • Do your homework...ideas that are not inspired by insights inspire no one
  • Collaborate with team members in such a way that brings out the best in everyone
  • Create imaginative and strategically relevant multi-channel content, including digital media, traditional media and videos/commercials
  • Present your ideas to internal teams and clients in a way that tells a compelling story
  • Write damn good copy that is grammatically sound, thought provoking and original (we don’t like cliché and overused marketing lingo)
  • Handle multiple projects and deadlines without losing your cool
  • Work proactively and show your team members and clients that you love what you do
  • Be nice. Nice people tend to be more successful at our company plus they make a lot of friends
  • Be brilliant as much as possible


Stuff you need:

  • 5+ years of direct job-related experience as a copywriter…agency experience gives you a huge edge
  • Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Communications or related field
  • Ability to translate ideas across multiple channels – both on and offline 
  • Attention to detail
  • Curiosity and a sense of humor
  • Passion about creative copywriting and pride in delivering quality business communications
