Copywriter/Content Creator

Remuneration: negotiable Basic salary
Location: Cape Town
Education level: Diploma
Job level: Mid
Type: Permanent
Company: The Social Effect

Job description

You are a master communicator. You like crafting text that packs a punch, has meaning and measurable impact. You excel at molding a message that can blast through the clutter and reach the target market, stirring them into action! While you may have dreamed of being the next Quentin Tarantino (the screenwriter as opposed to the director) or the next Hunter S Thompson you know your wordsmith talent is not being fulfilled in the mediocre environment you find yourself! We are B2B digital agency (please don’t yawn) with offices in Cape Town and London that have successfully won the hearts and minds of some of the world’s largest technology companies (let me name drop – Microsoft, HP, IBM), gigantic trade show organizers and some incredibly sexy startups with our special brand of social/digital marketing. While our motto is ‘B2B doesn’t need to be boring’ we can sometimes be accused of falling off our high horse into the hum-drum blandness of 99% of our B2B agency competitors. If you are a content creator who is funny, ballsy, brave, and bold and can write circles around the typical agency-hack we want to be talking to you!
