Walker are on the hunt for a creative copywriter who isn’t afraid to get stuck in at the deep end and apply their thinking on some major international brands.
The role will allow you to flex creative muscle, working on campaign ideas, digital, tv and radio scripts, outdoor ads, pitches, the kitchen sink. We’re full-service, so the media is very broad and can range from social right through to outdoor experiential. Successful candidates will need to have a firm grasp of strategy & planning, understanding how the agency process marries strategy with the big idea. Whilst this is a copywriter position and will require some words down on paper from time to time, the key duties will be much more conceptual, and require more of the ‘creative’ part of the role (as opposed to writing novels).
