Copywriter recruitment

Who should you ask to help you hire your next copywriter? Another copywriter, obviously.

(Our latest copywriting jobs are right here.)

It’s hard to recruit good people for content and copywriting roles. What are their motivations, talents and ambitions? How do you reach them? How do you retain them? As writers who find writers, we’ve got the answers. 

Our copy test is to writers what The Knowledge is to London cabbies; you can be sure anyone who’s aced it knows their way around a keyboard. Hiring for a specialist role? We’ve placed writers in e-commerce businesses, government departments, banks and creative agencies.

Whatever the role, we’ll find copywriters who are up to the job, and then some.

Hiring a copywriter?

Tested, pre-screened copywriters and content professionals. Ready when you are.

Content design role – full-time for six months

This is a fixed-term copywriting role for six months, starting as soon as you can.

We're hiring on behalf of one of our clients. You'll work for us, but you'll be seconded to them.

What you'll do

Our client is migrating a large, complex website to a new modular design system. You'll be one of a team of experienced, tech-savvy writers who will wrangle the words into place – and into shape.

The role is remote, but you will need to commute to Edinburgh or Glasgow for (very) occasional meetings. But for the time being, let's forget about traffic jams and cancelled trains – there's a whole lot of copy to write.

The skills you'll need

  • Copywriting and tone of voice (it goes without saying, but still)
  • Editing and proofing – no errant apostrophes or dead-eyed phrases on your watch
  • SEO, from keyword research to the page
  • Analytics
  • User-centred content design, including accessibility
  • Team working and time management – there's a lot to do, and you won't be doing it alone
  • Problem solving – figuring out the best tech and content fixes

The important stuff

There’s a competitive salary, 31 days’ holiday and a pension.

How to apply

Upload your CV and cover letter using the form on this page. Next steps? If we like you – and you still like us – we'll ask you to complete our copy test. It's blissfully short and straightforward.
