WE'RE LOOKING FOR A: COPYWRITER

We’re looking for a copywriter to join our fast-paced and friendly media company, located on the coast in the beautiful village of Porthleven.

TYPE: Full-time

COMPANY: Leven Media Group Ltd

LOCATION: Porthleven

SALARY: Starting at £19,000 per year with company pension

WHO WE ARE

 

At Leven Media Group, our core values enable us to nurture an environment in which people can do their best work and where each day is fun, rewarding and memorable. In turn, this enables us to deliver on our company promise; to ensure a positive return for our clients and readers, and create the ultimate lifestyle for all, including ourselves!

 

Our approach is team-based and we value those who go the Extra Mile, whether that’s stepping outside of usual daily duties to help a colleague, or going above and beyond to ensure a positive client experience. We also recognise those who think outside the box, and the value we place on our team’s monthly Genius Idea submissions has helped to ensure that Leven Media Group continues to grow as a Cornish media powerhouse. 

 

As a team, we hold monthly themed buffet lunches – a chance to ‘down tools’, break bread and reflect on our achievements – and given where our office is, we would be mad not to enjoy Friday beers by the sea….

 

To put it simply, we believe that our strength lies in our people, and we are proud to have nurtured an environment in which our entire team can thrive.

 

THE COPYWRITER’S ROLE

 

We want to be absolutely clear from the get-go: as a Copywriter at Leven Media Group, you must be able to work quickly, accurately, and to uncomfortably tight deadlines. Why? We are an extremely busy media company, and this is reflected in the day-to-day workload.

 

If you’re still reading, then good for you! This is a golden opportunity for a skilled copywriter to utilise, enhance and further their skillset in a results-driven content marketing environment. Oh, and did we mention that our office is by the sea in Porthleven?

 

If you are successful, you will be tasked with the creation of on-brand content that promotes the Cornish seaside lifestyle across our entire portfolio of titles – content that will be delivered to our audiences in print, online, and across our digital platforms. You will have a proven eye for detail and written accuracy, and from day one will be tasked with the written promotion of our clients’ key marketing messages. It will be your responsibility not only to ensure that their paid-for content delivers the optimum response from our readership, but also that it adheres to our in-house style guidelines. 

 

As part of your role, you will:
 

  • Conceptualise original, high-engagement copy ideas that promote our clients’ key marketing messages

  • Interpret creative briefs and adapt into persuasive copy concepts

  • Conduct telephone interviews to create engaging stories

  • Manage tasks across multiple projects with short deadlines

  • Produce accurate content that follows our in-house style guidelines, across multiple titles and platforms

  • Make client copy amendments within house style guidelines

  • Work alongside our commercial team to ensure content delivers the best possible value/returnfor our clients 

  • Be asked to help with tasks in other parts of the business, to ensure deadlines are met

What all of this in mind, let’s take a look at what we think our new Copywriter should bring to the table…
