Senior Copywriter (On-Call/Hourly)
Hello. For several solid years you have crafted taglines, social posts, calls to action, website blurbs, the names of brands, and countless other bundles of words you banged out and delivered with a big smile, a quick nod, or a pained grin – your cutting-room floor could be cleaned up with a rake. You’re a copywriter and you love what you do. What’s more, you’re good at it. The years of experience and battle scars have helped you keep an eye on the business and elevate your craft. You still get excited about a great idea and are laser-focused on how to make it come to life. We need you. We’re currently hiring an On-Call Senior Copywriter to work with us on an as-needed basis, with the flexibility to work from zero to 30 hours per week.
We’re the DC metro area’s best-kept secret, but the good news is we won’t be for long. We develop trans-media integrated marketing campaigns for clients and causes that make the world a better place, and we win armfuls of industry awards for our work to boot. Join us and we’ll get even better. Send us your portfolio and resume, and we’ll respond right away.
As an On-Call Senior Copywriter, you’ll:
- Write copy for a wide range of media, including social, web, print, radio, and video.
- Support public and private sector clients who tackle issues like COVID-19, energy efficiency, climate change, child welfare, and more.
- Think strategically while developing ideas and concepts for projects and campaigns.
- Make deadline. Seems obvious, but it’s kind of a thing here.
- Eight to 10 years of experience as a copywriter, preferably within an agency environment.
- A bachelor’s degree in marketing, advertising, or communications, or equivalent experience in a related field.
- A portfolio that shows strong concepting and copywriting skills across a range of pieces, including long-form content.
- Excellent organizational skills, with solid attention to detail.
