You relish collaborating with colleagues to deliver content against complex briefs, taking the initiative and resolving business problems with effective business skills



You’ll be working directly in the client's in-house copy studio and they will manage your workload. You’ll be checking a wide variety of customer comms, but mostly digital, working directly with the content originators and other stakeholders, largely autonomously. 



  • Liaising with the Production team throughout the day to manage expectations and schedule work
  • Communicating decisions and requests clearly (using email, Word and PowerPoint) when you want to propose any changes
  • Dealing with complications in briefing and process – deciding whether correct processes have been followed and escalating as appropriate
  • Providing clear, concise and constructive feedback to the copy team where necessary

  • Making evaluative judgements based on the analysis of factual information, and resolving problems by identifying and selecting solutions through the application of acquired technical experience



  • Be a strong proofreader with a good understanding of digital content best practice and UX and a superlative attention to detail and look for feedback and insight from everything around them
  • Have relevant experience, ideally in financial services, or a similarly complex and/or regulatory sector in a company with complex digital needs. You’ll be familiar with (or able to rapidly learn about) financial compliance regulations, Advertising Standards Authority, data privacy rules and anti-fraud practices and always follow these guidelines to balance business and customer needs
  • Have experience using a CMS, especially Adobe Experience Manager
  • Have a strong understanding of branding, TOV, content strategy and experience working with other teams in an agile environment
  • Have the experience and confidence to work directly with and engage with stakeholders, understanding their circumstances and drivers, and ensuring that they identify shared areas of interest and mutual benefit.
  • Want to work in an environment where colleagues feel free to try out new ideas and turn them into practical reality. You’ll be able to demonstrate a constructive approach to managing and resolving conflicts or differences
  • Build relationships based on trust as well as mutually beneficial business arrangements, having challenging conversations where necessary
  • Be resolute in meeting promises and hitting objectives and deadlines and take personal accountability for your work
  • Stand by their decisions, learn from their mistakes and back up any judgment with analytical reasoning
