Web and PR copywriter

We manage websites, social media platforms and online marketing campaigns for a wide range of companies, from local small firms, to national and international businesses.

We’re recruiting a Web and PR copywriter to help us develop this growing element of our business. This is a great opportunity for someone who doesn’t want to be pigeon-holed. One day you could be writing and distributing a media release. The next, you could be researching and preparing content for an infographic. The day after, you could be writing a blog post. Or all three on one day.
