About the Job

Overview of role


We are seeking a Junior Creative to become the copywriting half of a creative pair as part of our MediaCom Creative Systems team. In this role, you will partner with a junior art director (also being hired), and work within an extensive multi-disciplinary team to create integrated concepts and campaigns.

The ideal candidate will have an obsessive passion for delivering new and exciting ideas and creative platforms across all forms of media, including sponsorships, partnerships, social media, influencer marketing, experiential, and other forms of non-traditional advertising.

The ideal candidate is excited to evolve as a writer, creative thinker, and team player in a fast-paced agency environment.

You will immerse yourself in the brands you work on, understand a brand’s tone and style of communication. Working alongside your partner you will play an active role in brainstorming and idea generation to deliver world-class creative concepts applicable across all platforms.

Although this is a junior role, we are looking for someone who will really punch above their weight, immediately working on some of the biggest brands in the UK. We need someone who has a clear and obvious passion for creativity, showing evidence of their passion and technique in all the work they have previously done (be it personal, academic or from a previous company).

Please note: we welcome existing art director / copywriter partners to apply – if applying as a pair, please make this clear in your application.
