Editorial and Marketing Copy Writer – British Journal of Photography, 1854.media
You will work with 1854’s rapidly growing marketing and creative services team as a full-time writer, using your copywriting to tell compelling and authentic stories around photography and visual culture. You will have a strong passion for photography, visual arts and culture and a burning desire to communicate that passion to the world.
What the role involves:
Branded Editorial Component
50% or more of your time will be spent writing high quality editorial pieces around photography and imaging as part of the native editorial we produce for own our products and third party brands. This is high quality editorial written to the same standard and house style as any of BJP’s other editorial, with the only difference being that it is produced with the financial support of a brand or one of 1854’s commercial business units.
So you know exactly what to expect, here are some examples of the type of editorial you’ll be writing:
- Editorial series to promote the call for entries for our Portrait of Britain Awards: Article 1; Article 2; Article 3; Article 4; Article 5
- Native editorial series on behalf of a third party brand, in this case Adobe, to raise awareness of Photoshop with young and emerging photographers: Article 1; Article 2; Article 3
Copy Writing Component
The rest of your time will be spent working on crafting social media, email, website and advert copy for both our own channels and client campaigns.
The following is required:
- A photography, art or visual communications degree.
- A good level of knowledge, and passion for, contemporary photography.
- Past experience writing editorial covering photography and/or visual arts and at least some experience of writing marketing copy or branded content. Ideally, we’d love to hire for both competencies but forced to choose we’re more likely to hire someone who has a strong skill-set in the former, and provide training on the latter.
- Good, and preferably demonstrable, familiarity with social media and social media copywriting.
How to apply:
Please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief cover email (no longer than 200 words) explaining:
- Why your past experience makes you well suited to the role.
- The unique personal attributes that would make you successful in the role.
- Why you want the role, both from the perspective of working with 1854.media and British Journal of Photography, and your own career ambitions.
Please also include links to previous editorial and copy you have written (this does not count towards the 200 word limit).
It goes without saying that this brief is your first copywriting test. We look forward to application!
