At Being Agency, our multidisciplinary team strives to offer customers an all-inclusive, quality service from start to finish. By working with businesses we believe in, we’ve been fortunate to develop not only meaningful projects, but genuine client relationships. With branding, communications, strategy, photography, video and web offered in one agency, the potential for clients to develop their business with us is limitless.

  • An accomplished communicator whose first language is English
  • A tertiary degree in writing, language, communications or equivalent
  • Minimum three years’ experience working with language as a writer, copywriter or English first language teacher
  • Perfect or very near perfect in spelling, grammar and punctuation (especially use of the apostrophe)
  • Great writing skills, both in creative and factual contexts
  • Able to work full-time from our Hunters Hill offices
  • Australian citizenship or residency

 

The ideal candidate will also have most or all of the following characteristics:

  • A high level of expertise in editing for clarity and accuracy (proofing, structural reconfiguration, correcting grammar, spelling and punctuation)
  • SEO training and/or experience
  • Experience in technical writing
  • Experience in tender submission writing
  • Experience unpacking briefs and developing copy that aligns with the client’s needs, end-user requirements and agency standards
  • Understanding of project budgets and timeframes
  • Experience with Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel
  • The ability to work on and switch between multiple projects
  • The ability to develop both collaborative and independent solutions
  • Willingness to work on assignments ranging from social media content and brand personalities to tender submissions and technical writing
  • A strong sense of self-motivation
  • An efficient work style, with the ability to be flexible and deliver high-quality work under pressure
  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to write across diverse platforms for varied clients
  • An industrious work ethic

More than anything, we need someone who would fit into our culture, which is built on teamwork, creative excellence, quality and exceptional customer service.

Ideally, you would be able to start in July 2020.
