COPYWRITER (FULL TIME) – MAGNUM OPUS PARTNERS, MELBOURNE
They say long copy is dead. The same people probably also say TV is dead, radio is dead, newspaper is dead (this one’s almost probably true), outdoor is dead, etc. The truth is long copy is dead if it sucks. We’re looking for a creative copywriter, creative content writer, copy ninja … (whatever you like to be called) to join our team and write kick-ass copy.
We’re not going to sugar coat it though. You’ll be writing brochures, banner ads, website copy, and even presentations. But you’ll also be writing TV, radio, quirky headlines, social films and even one of those award-winning ‘Fearless Girl’ type ads.
You have to be able to take the good with the bad and sometimes the bad is like real bad,
like 20 rounds of back and forth with the client bad. But you keep your cool and swallow your pride, then go home and cry yourself to sleep. Then wake up and do it all over again the next day.
But then you remember as you were crying yourself to sleep the night before you realised you had a cracking idea for one of our clients but forgot to write it down, so you spend the day trying to piece it together until you finally remember it and realised it wasn’t that good. You know how it goes, we all do it.
So, here we are, still looking for a copywriter that can write better than this, as this was written by an art director. You won’t be working in a team but with the team.
If this gig sounds like it’s for you then please send your folio to email@example.com (yes, that is my email and no there is no .com or .com.au). We’re uber trendy. We’re looking for someone good, so if this is you or someone you might know, send us a message.
SENIOR DIRECTOR OPPORTUNITY (CONTRACT) – MAGNUM OPUS PARTNERS, MELBOURNE
We need a passionate ad-person to be a part of the Senior Management team at one of Australia’s longest standing independent agencies. Since the whole world has changed recently, maybe you have too?
You might already be working for yourself, or you’re working in a very senior account director role.
You know that “account service” isn’t about work-in-progress or ‘dotting the Is and crossing the Ts’. That’s taken for granted. Instead, you offer an authoritative presence backed by a strong creative bent as well. (And you know that “creative” covers everything about what an agency does, and not just the ads.)
Most of all, what you’re all about is clever insights that advance your client’s cause, and which you can sell with both enthusiasm and knowledge. And that knowledge crosses traditional media, online media, and even no media: events, PR, influencers … you’ve been there and done all that too. You can achieve more. We can help. So for a completely confidential discussion on this unique opportunity, please email our Managing Director Erin Lightfoot today on firstname.lastname@example.org

COPYWRITER (FULL TIME) – YOUI, SUNSHINE COAST
Hey! So you think you can write? Awesome – come and do it with us. On the Sunshine Coast.
The Youi brand has been created by a small band of in-house people. People who’ve worked for big agencies, small agencies and themselves. We’ve plugged away and created a brand that’s challenged the big guys. And now we’re looking for another writer to team up with an awesome Art Director to help take our brand to the next level.
Our crew does it all. From TV to radio, social, digital, ‘content’, design, customer experience and (the slightly less exciting but still important) insurance docs. Our Creative Director even shoots the commercials, so you could say we’re a bit of a one-stop-shop.
Good. We’re looking for an experienced Copywriter who wants to do great work in a great part of the world. Ideally, you’ll have 5+ years’ experience working in a digital or ad agency. You like words (obviously) but also know what looks nice.
Being paired up with an Art Director, you won’t be out there by yourself. And you’ll be working alongside another writer, designers and developers, and reporting into our Creative Director.
Oh, you love ideas too. And are happy to work collaboratively to make them happen. You’re also rather fond of video and won’t be afraid to get out there with our content producers to interview somebody after a cyclone. Or a flood. Or something a little lighter. You never know.
Essentially, we want a writer who’s not afraid to get their hands dirty, and wants to be part of a small team doing things differently.
The building we work in is nice and has good coffee. Yes, it’s on the Sunny Coast, but we don’t overlook the beach. It’s not far away, though.
If you like the sound of the job and think you fit the bill, get in touch. Can’t see a closing date on the job ad? That’s because we’re pretty excited to find our next copywriter and may start interviews immediately, so APPLY NOW by submitting your CV and covering letter today. We’ll be in touch soon.
