Creative consultant (UK)
What kind of person are you?
Like all of us at The Writer, you’re a lover of language who’s keen to help brands and businesses find their voice and write in the way that’s right for them.
As a creative consultant, you’ll work on writing and consultancy projects for some of the world’s biggest brands – and a few smaller, but no less exciting, ones too. From helping them define their tone of voice, to writing websites, packaging, chatbot scripts, and everything in between. And you’ll design and run workshops that help people become more effective writers at work.
You’re already a writer who’s worked with brands and businesses
You’ll have spent at least two years in a creative agency or client-side. You’ll ideally also have worked on meaty consultancy projects, like tone of voice and messaging. And when it comes to tone of voice, you know that it’s not just about defining a voice, it’s about making it practical, and making it stick.
You’re happy getting up in front of people and working a room.
You’re a confident, persuasive and entertaining speaker, who can improvise at the drop of a hat. And you know what it takes to facilitate and manage groups, without lecturing or driving people to Zzzzzzz with PowerPoint fatigue.
You can switch between brands’ voices with ease
You’re just as comfortable writing about banking and technology as you are writing about ice cream and deodorant.
You’re a juggler and multi-tasker
Jumping from a client call to a presentation and still hitting the deadline for that website that’s going live at the end of the day? You’re not fazed.
You’re insatiably curious
You enjoy getting under the skin of a client’s business. You get a kick out of proving the measurable effects of creative work. And you love digging in to the science, psychology, mythology or whatever it might be that’ll help you research a project.
What will you be doing?
You’ll work on all sorts of writing jobs, for all sorts of clients. And you’ll critique and oversee other writers’ work, giving them constructive feedback.
You’ll do consultancy work where the thinking is as important as a way with words. From tone of voice, to content strategy, to brand messaging.
You’ll design and run writing workshops, both virtually and face to face. That could involve traveling to the other side of the city, the country, or even the world.
You’ll help make us famous by writing blogs, tweets, case studies and award entries about our work and the difference it makes.
