Right now we are looking for an experienced Creative Writer to join our multi-award winning Advertising Team at Signal 1 and 2 in Stoke on Trent.
One of our writers is heading off to another part of the world, and he’s leaving behind a pretty large pair of creative shoes to fill. We would have preferred him to take his shoes with him, but he’s leaving them behind anyway. They're in a box behind his desk.
That’s where you step in!
You’ll have a proven track record of writing successful radio commercials; you will be able to take listeners on mind twisting audio adventures. You will understand the power of sound and how to harness that sound into supersonic sales. You’ll have also worked closely with account managers and commercial producers, and worked together to create unforgettable, effective radio campaigns for clients.
In return, we can offer you a competitive salary, commission, and a one to one introduction to the woman who runs the chippy at the bottom of the road. Extra chips guaranteed!
So, if you would like to join our creative team, and take your writing career to the next level, then
apply below, stating why you absolutely have to be considered for this job. Feel free to include examples of radio scripts or creative writing to wow us.
Closing date for receipt of applications is: 5.30pm on Friday 2nd June 2017.
We’re looking forward to meeting you ……………….
