Copywriter (Up to £35,000)

Accomplished wordsmith? Persuasive with words? Style and substance? Master of punctuation?

Let’s set the scene

Imagine a fast growing creative agency, looking after many big brands, including: ODEON, Vodafone, Argos, Lidl and Caterpillar. Creating film, animation, VR experiences, experiential moments, print and digital campaigns. Imagine 12 years of growth, continued pitch wins, a growing team, a bursting trophy cabinet and an exciting future.

Imagine you: a key part of our plans; our first full-time copywriter. Surrounded by a team of highly creative and enthusiastic people. Imagine crafting always engaging, sometimes quirky, inspiring copy for recognised brands that our clients will love.

We’re Synergy, the go-to employee engagement specialists. We believe in the power of people. We work with brands to turn these ambitions into actions – inspiring people to delight colleagues and customers, transform cultures and make a real difference. We do all this by creating effective, insight-driven and fun experiences that really connect with employees. It’s powerful stuff. Because when you tap into the power of your people, everything is possible.

We live by our values: together is better and fortune favours the brave to name just two. So being a good team player with dedication, passion for the role, and the ability to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, is essential.

We’re a Design Week Top 100 agency and were named in The Drum’s independent Agency Census. This year has been our biggest yet, with some great new account wins and lots of new team members. So, come and be part of something special.
