Copywriter – Healthcare

We Are Seeking

We are seeking a talented Copywriter to join our team in New York. Healthcare creative is often seen as boring and conservative. We work every day to disrupt that theory. But it takes a special type of creative.

You’re someone who:

  • Loves to be challenged
  • Gets to the point – fast
  • Is a team player
  • Thinks outside the box
  • Is ready to raise their hand

What You Will Be Doing:

  • Crafting overall campaign messaging direction, maintaining consistency.
  • Writing short- and long-form copy, including concept manifestos, digital/social copy, video scripts, pitch documents and a range of campaign material.
  • Developing and adhering to multiple brand voices.
  • Collaborating with the greatest minds across the network.
  • Joining client meetings, brainstorms and planning sessions for ongoing projects.
  • Building and maintaining strong rapport with creative team colleagues, client leads and project managers.
  • Cultivating an inclusive culture as part of a team that values trust, honesty, and team accountability toward defined goals and results.

Basic Qualifications:

  • 1-3 years of copywriting experience in a related agency, department or industry (advertising, digital, social media, publishing/content or public relations).
  • An interest in the healthcare/pharmaceutical space.
  • Must have a portfolio (share anything that conveys the way you think or approach assignments, even if it was never produced).
  • Be curious, self-motivated, hard-working, well-organized and resilient amid ever-changing timelines, requests and deliverables.
  • Ongoing drive to learn and incorporate new and emerging techniques, trends and philosophies in design, technology, interaction and social media.
  • Advanced knowledge of brand development, marketing/advertising and the creative process.

Additional Qualifications: 

  • Knowing what makes for compelling work – be it on social platforms, in video, or in launch ideas that get talked about, reported on and pointed to by other agencies with an “I wish we’d thought to do that” envy.
  • Ability to effectively communicate through any medium (a script, a tweet, a pin, a manifesto, a speech).

One Last (Important) Thing:

Please share your portfolio when you apply. It doesn’t need to be fancy and it doesn’t need to have published work – we just want to see what you’ve done.
