Job description

We're looking for a senior copywriter, one that believes words are like rhythm. They move to a beat you create and dance on a page in various forms—sometimes digital, taglines, prose or even poetry.

You love words and know how to use them. You like being ‘on the tools’. No matter what you’re writing, each word has a purpose, and is used to capture audiences with storytelling that speaks to a deep knowledge of your clients and their businesses. You have a meticulous eye for details and take joy in making things better.

The August team is smart and nimble; working together to build innovative projects, committed to learning and sharing something new every day. Copywriters work within our talented team alongside designers, developers, consultants and analysts to ensure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to articulating our clients’ stories and communicating with their audiences.

The job in 55 words or less

  • Crafting engaging content for strategic and tactical output across digital channels.
  • Collaborating within our team to deliver compelling concepts and ideas to clients.
  • Editing and proofreading client copy.
  • Keeping up to date with emerging, relevant technologies and trends.

Does this sound like you?

  • Experience as a copywriter or writer with marketing experience (minimum 8 years).
  • An insatiable appetite for writing – long form and short.
  • Advanced editorial and proofreading skills.
  • Ability to take content ideas from concept through to implementation.
  • Experience in content strategy and execution for long term engagements.
  • Digital marketing experience and a strong understanding of the digital environment.
  • You're all about owning your results - especially the ones you realised you needed to learn something from.

You get extra credit for

  • Experience with Figma and other design related tools.
  • Experience with online content tools.
  • A sound knowledge of SEO techniques and principles.

What you will get

Working at August is not just another agency job. While we take our work seriously, we really enjoy the company of the people we work with and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. It takes time to find the right people to join our team. There’s a level of trust and flexibility that is hard to describe, but here goes nothing. You’ll enjoy the freedom to create and contribute to sophisticated projects the way you want, combined with a robustness of process that ensures you have total support to focus all your energy and inspiration on compelling design and technical challenges. If you’d like more detail, we’d love you to ask us about it!

Our values play an important part in everything we do at August. They help us deliver epic work for clients around the world and they’ve seen us through some difficult times. As a team member, you’ll continue to develop not just your technical craft, but other valuable qualities such as powerful communication skills, commercial and business nous, and handy insights into totally random stuff, like a quick and easy killer dumpling recipe, or the engineering magic behind the latest SpaceX test flight (again, you might want to ask us!). When we hire someone to join the team, we’re interested and invested in all the different parts that make up you – because ultimately, that’s what makes August.

As a team member, you can also expect:

  • A competitive salary package with various incentives and rewards.
  • Flexible working is part of our daily jam.
  • Working within a highly motivated, talented and technology–driven team.
  • A team of people who will invest in your career progression
    and development.
  • Generous company policies that help you grow and balance life.
  • Many other perks we will discuss when we meet you.
