Copywriter

Location: Peoria, IL

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

We’re on the hunt for a copywriter with strong writing and editing capabilities and a background in marketing. This person should be curious, detail-oriented and self-motivated. Good copywriters are good communicators. They transform clients’ business needs into creative, compelling messages for targeted audiences. If you thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced work environment and have something to say, we’re looking for you.

 

Stuff you’ll do:

  • Think big, simplify, twist and turn ideas until they come to life as amazing experiences for the intended audiences.
  • Write damn good copy that is thought provoking, grammatically sound, and original (we don’t like cliché and overused marketing lingo.)
  • Create imaginative and strategically relevant multi-channel content, including digital media, traditional media and videos/commercials.
  • 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.
  • Be a team player. Copywriters work with almost every role at the agency. Collaborate openly to achieve the best results.   
  • Present your ideas to internal teams and clients in a way that tells a compelling story.
  • Work proactively. Balance multiple projects and deadlines without losing your cool.
  • Be brilliant as much as possible.

Stuff you’ll need:

  • 5+ years of direct job-related experience as a copywriter…agency experience gives you a huge edge. Demonstrate that you are current on industry trends.
  • Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, Communications or related field
  • Ability to vary tone and voice to connect to different audiences 
  • Attention to detail
  • Determination. Stay positive, no matter how many rounds of edits come your way.
  • Curiosity and a sense of humor
  • Passion about copywriting and pride in delivering quality communications
