Current vacancies April 2018:
Copywriter for Award Entries (Specialist Marketing / PR Consultant)
We’re looking for a skilled copywriter to work with our clients and produce dazzling award submissions. This is a unique and exciting role, offering the chance to work on interesting stories across a range of industries within our diverse and global client base.
As a senior consultant you will be producing accurate, engaging submissions for business awards that will impress the judges and maximise our clients’ chances of winning. This is a client-facing role, so you will have your own portfolio of clients to manage and write for, but a big part of your role will be maintaining and growing this portfolio. This means that, in addition to copywriting, you will be responsible for engaging prospective clients/sales leads, helping your clients to plan the right awards to enter and quoting for work. There will be some travel to client meetings – the majority of which are based in London and the surrounding area.
Ideally the candidate will work from our Hove office, but homeworking will be considered.
The ideal candidate will be an experienced copywriter, expert at finding the angle in a story and will be able to write an award entry from day one. Essential experience includes:
- Copywriting: Able to produce persuasive yet accurate copy, with adaptable tones and styles. Award submissions not only require excellent copywriting skills, but also an understanding of how businesses operate, and the ability to understand and present evidence/statistics in a compelling way.
- Account management: Ability to build strong relationships with Managers/CEOs/Directors of both new and repeat clients, with the gravitas to present and field questions confidently (over the telephone and face-to-face).
- Project management: You will work as part of a close-knit team, so excellent communication and team working skills are essential, particularly as some of your colleagues will be home-based/based at other locations. Organisation is a must – awards are deadline driven, so you need be able to adhere to strict turnaround times for each project.
As a Senior Consultant, you’ll earn £22,000-£26,000 per annum depending on experience; with the potential to earn an additional £1,800 per annum in performance-related bonuses; plus a company pension contribution (currently 3% of basic).
Boost is the world’s first and largest dedicated award writing consultancy firm. Helping businesses enter awards successfully is what we do for a living – day in, day out. We’ve written over 1,100 winning entries since establishment 11 years ago, with 75% of our entries making the finals and almost 40% going on to win.
We help clients with their entire awards strategy, from identifying which stories to run with, to creating 12-month plans of which awards to enter, providing an end-to-end service for writing and designing each award submission, and even conducting staff and customer surveys to gather the all-important evidence to use within the award submissions.
We work across all sectors and have a global client base that any marketing firm would be extremely envious of. What’s more, we’re award winners ourselves, having been honoured by the CRN Sales and Marketing Awards, CIPR Pride Awards, and International Business Awards.
