Attitude and ambition are more important than degree discipline though a degree in English, journalism or related subjects might be an advantage.
You’ll be smart, articulate and ambitious, digitally focused and web savvy. You’ll be passionate about marketing and the internet. Most of all you’ll love to learn and be excited by the opportunity to help people in achieving the measurable results needed to grow their business.
You’ll be analytical and detail-focused, whilst being able to write with creativity and purpose. You’ll be a multi-tasker who wants to take initiative rather than wait to be told. You’ll be hungry to grow your skills, and build your career in SEO copywriting and to progress into inbound marketing consultancy.
As a junior copywriter you’ll work with an inbound consultant and account manager to:
- Interview clients to get the information that you need to develop campaign materials
- Research and write Marketing Personas
- Write SEO friendly copy for blogs, websites, downloadable ebooks, infographics, checklists, videos, slide decks, case studies and email campaigns
- You’ll work on a small portfolio of clients and on marketing campaigns for Axon Garside
Training and learning are at the heart of a successful inbound marketing business. So in addition to on the job training and time to explore new skills and developments, you will get structured training based on the market-leading HubSpot professional development courses.
After an initial 12 months you will be expected to qualify as a HubSpot Certified Inbound Marketing Professional. You’ll learn how to define, refine and measure results for client lead-generation campaigns and be able to advise and lead clients to grow their businesses faster. It's the most sought after position in marketing today.
With a starting salary of £18,000, after an initial 6 months with the agency you’ll be entitled to regular appraisals. You’ll be based at our office in Manchester’s Northern Quarter but we also encourage a flexible approach to working that is focused around delivering results rather than a rigid 9-5.30 day in the office.
