We are a national Recruitment Group who are looking for a copywriter who can help us lift how we talk to our candidates, our clients and our colleagues.

We're a multi brand group that has grown to become one of the UK's leading recruitment businesses. With offices in 14 locations nationwide, we place people at all levels across a wide range of commercial and industry sectors - and by extension we work with some of the UKs leading businesses and brands as our clients.

About the role:

How we talk to customers (clients and candidates) and how we build brand cultures (internally and externally) is a key focus for our business growth over the next 18 months.

We're looking for a copywriter who has an interest in strategic brand development as well as being the engine of our content output across all our channels.

We will grow rapidly so this isn't a role for the faint- hearted, you'll be asked to produce a wide range of copy; from long form pieces, reactive blogs, employee brand content to in- house brand campaigns.

It's a fantastic career opportunity for a copywriter to have a varied role, to apply their discipline to different writing styles and make an immediate and tangible difference to business results.

As a Copywriter at Search Consultancy you will:

  • Deliver all key customer facing messaging.
  • Write descriptive or technical content bringing our proposition, services and divisions to life on the site and in other channels.
  • Create long form content pieces on industry topics, delving into targeted subject matters or targeting closed user groups and success in organic listings.
  • Work with the other marketing team members on multiple channel communications.
  • Create added value content to support our organic search strategy.
  • Work on campaigns for Search Recruitment Group sites or for 3rd party partners.

What we're looking for:

  • Copywriting experience with an agency or even better with a recruitment agency.
  • Alternatively, you're in house or freelance, but can demonstrate that you're able to turn round quality content at pace.
  • An interest in how copy performs in different channels - one size doesn't fit all!
  • Provable experience in producing engaging online copy that has driven traffic or rankings.
  • Ability and mindset to switch between long copy to short form, to move from bringing a service proposition to life to telling human based and emotional stories.
  • Proven ability to write for different audiences and need states.

Who you are:

  • You identify as a writer, it's your passion and you're an expert.
  • You're smart, curious and proactive.
  • You're confident in your ability and will want to demonstrate how your work is making difference to business success.
  • You love collaborating and working with teams, but are also self motivated and can be left to deliver what you need to do.
  • You will ideally be Manchester based, the role will be office based in the city centre with some remote working involved.
