Have you been waiting for a junior level Copywriter role, and would love to work at one of Auckland’s best advertising agencies?

Our client is looking for a junior level Copywriter to join an Art Director, working on a large range of well-known clients. This is a role where you will refine and deploy the craft of great copywriting. You will have a highly competent understanding of copywriting, knowing when to embellish and when to be concise with language; how to best write to the tone of the brand and know how to deploy your craft correctly, ensuring best impact across channels.

You are responsible for all the written elements of the work, directing the tone and language of work from ideation to presentation, production, and finally to consumers.

At the junior level you are still learning—that never stops, however you should be more than capable of deploying the craft of great writing to a world-class standard, with support from your CD. You know how to bring work to life through the tone of the brand and in a way that is sympathetic to the idea, and you know how to deliver ideas in ways that work for each unique channel. 

Working with an Art Director, together coming up with great ideas for the brands. You should be prolific when it comes to generating ideas. You don’t overly self-edit. You are not afraid of your ideas being “wrong” or “crazy” – finding these boundaries is the best way to develop the art of concepting.

Who Do I Work With?

Inside the building you will work directly with CDs, ECDs, other teams, planners, producers, digital collaborators, and the account teams. Outside the building you will work directly with the production partners, producers, photographers, directors, illustrators, and others. 

You may begin to develop client relationships and present some of your own work. You will work hard to earn the love and trust of your team and your regular clients.

What Are My Responsibilities?

  • Production. This is where your mad skills will shine. With support it is your job to ensure that the execution of an idea lives up to the original vision. Budget should not be an excuse it should be seen as an opportunity for innovation. If an idea is great, it can be a great execution, as long as the execution is sympathetic to the idea
