Senior Copywriter
As a Senior Copywriter at Colle McVoy, you’ll be responsible for delivering brand-building, big ideas, putting your gift of the written word to work across mediums. You’ll spend a lot of time with an art director or designer dreaming up ridiculously big ideas. Once you and your visual friend strike gold, you’ll be responsible for bringing your big idea to life. That usually means you’ll be on production to deliver TV/video, digital and social content, out of home, experiential and more. You’ll probably even get to travel and eat a nice meal or two in the process. So, if you’d like to work for an agency that has a sweet rooftop deck overlooking downtown, a tap server and has been named a Best Place to Work consecutively for twelve years, then show us what you’ve got.

– Work with team members specializing in design/art direction to ensure copy and visuals work together
– Establish tone and copy style to appropriately reflect brand positioning
– Present ideas and work effectively to internal teams and clients
– Cross-functional thinker (social, advertising, experiential, PR/earned media)
– Remain current on industry trends and technology
– Attend and contribute to pre- and post-productions, as necessary

Required Skills:
– A self-starter who needs little direction to tackle assignments
– Stellar ability to distill brand and project strategies into simple, compelling ideas
– Adept at various forms of writing (TV scripts, taglines, headlines, social concepts, etc.)
– Working knowledge of Microsoft Office; Adobe Creative Suite a plus
– Ability to gracefully handle multiple projects in a fast-paced environment
– Work collaboratively in an environment that values innovation, flexibility, and creativity
