  • Full-time, 24-month fixed term, based in Hawthorn

You know the power of words. After all, you’ve built your career around how you wield them. Now, use your talents to connect people with the uni course that could help them kick off their career or switch to their true calling. 

You’ll be working on student recruitment campaigns, web content and briefs from various faculties, in collaboration with designers, photographers and videographers. No two days will be alike. 

Who are we after? 

You’re irrepressibly inquisitive about your audience, easily switch your tone between formal and flippant, and gracefully manage stakeholders from brief to delivery. 

It goes without saying that you 

  • Have completed a degree in marketing, advertising or communications.
  • Have substantial experience as a copywriter or content writer in a medium to large creative agency, media company or publisher.
  • Can demonstrate that experience with a killer portfolio, which should have, in it, examples of web, eDM and editorial writing. A sprinkling of short, sharp headlines will win you an extra star.
  • Think about the audience first, while also keeping the brand voice and marketing objectives in mind. 
  • Get excited about feedback from analytics and use it to improve your approach to content or style. 
  • Manage multiple projects, deadlines and stakeholders without breaking (too much of) a sweat.
