o Conduct workshops to ‘draw-out’ stories from clients or colleagues and help them find new ways to articulate their ideas.

o Provide help for colleagues in interpreting and implementing their copy and tone-of-voice guidelines for our internal projects.

o Help develop a continually expanding pool of re-usable content about their own work for new business proposals.

Key skills

o Ability to craft strong, meaningful copy in a wide range of styles and spot copywriting talent.

o Experience managing and developing copywriters and editorial content creators.

o A passion for working directly with senior clients and stakeholders and helping them ‘find the right words’.

o A good understanding of the Customer Experience, UX, Service Design and Design Thinking landscape.
