COPY EDITOR / PROJECT MANAGER
Apostrophe Copywriters is on the hunt for a word nerd and master planner in one. Someone who can handle a red pen, project brief and bunch of stakeholders like this guy. A true ‘slashie’ – the kind that loves being both creative and technical. Flexible and rigorous. Logical and sensitive. Someone who appreciates the wit of a toilet door poem, but takes a Sharpie to the misused apostrophe. You might think it makes you a pain in the arse. We’ll hire you for it. You may not have a tonne of experience, but what you lack in years, you make up for in grit, hunger, and natural smarts. And you wanna bring it to our table to make sure we deliver top-rate work, errryday.
As the Copy Editor / Project Manager…
You will take all new projects and run them through the process to submission, keeping your team abreast of all the milestones. You’ll work with the Senior Account Manager to deliver the work on time and to expectation. But not before you’ve been through it with a fine-tooth comb to catch every stray comma, misplaced apostrophe or glaring dangling modifier – of course, you know exactly what a dangling modifier is and how they pierce your grammar-loving heart.
You’ll be the person who guides our team from A to B (and then to C and D). You’ll help our clients deliver razor-sharp feedback and then pass it on to the creatives with tact so it’s all smiles and high fives at the end. While you’re obsessed with the detail, the big picture is in your sights.
You love being part of a team, and you’ll consider this person your best ally. Together you’ll share the challenges and the successes, the knowledge, and the lessons.
You’re a next-level kind of creature…
As the Copy Editor / Project Manager, you’ll…
Some training you need to have under your belt…
So, who are we?
Apostrophe Copywriters is a 40-strong copywriting collective based in Collingwood and peppered right across the globe. Two-thirds of us have worked in the world’s top advertising agencies, and the rest have made their mark (and continue to do so) by drawing inspiration from previous chapters of their life such as environmental science, naturopathy, architecture, law, music and much more. We’ve worked with global design agencies, boutique branding teams and gung-ho start-ups that are defining their own categories. We’ve wowed clients with brand stories and taglines, and smashed world records with crowdfunding campaigns. There’s almost nothing we haven’t written for or about. And we devour new challenges like coyotes in the desert (just with much better manners). Our next biggest challenge is a company re-brand, and we’ll relish your help in pushing it forward.
The nitty gritty
This is a full-time role on a three-month contract to start. Show us what you’re made of to make this thing permanent. Salary will be considered alongside the prowess you’re bringing – and is just the starting point. Your wage is in your hands from there on out.
Does this sound like you? If so, send us your CV and cover letter.
If we like what we see, you’ll be asked to complete a personality test (which you’ll take great pleasure in), a group interview (so we can measure your compatibility) and an editing test. You bring your A-game; we’ll bring the caffeine.
Apostrophe Copywriters is on the hunt for a fast-twitching, quick-thinking strategic Senior Account Manager. Someone who’ll get out there, rein in the business and deliver it with a smile and deft hand.
