Overview

As a result of rapid growth, we need a Copywriter to primarily support our Creative Team, but also assist the business. 

You will be part of a friendly and supportive team and will have the opportunity to work with some fantastic and well-established clients and brands. You will also receive access to the Amazon learning console to conduct the relevant training and receive support and training internally. As a young growing company, there is also room to grow as we grow.

Optimizon is a young, fast-growing, and friendly E-Commerce digital agency based in Swindon. Our clients are retail brands who sell on eBay & Amazon. We create storefronts and write the copy to describe the products as well as handling a host of back-office functions to boost our client’s sales on these marketplaces.

(Your workload will be managed by Head of Operations, but your training, direction and quality of work will be the responsibility of the Head of Creative) 

Duties:

  • Writing Amazon copy for a variety of products, from coats and jackets to vitamins for pets, toasters, kettles or Winnie the Pooh mugs. Typically, this will be Title, 5 bullet point, photo captions and product descriptions in the A+ 
  • Normally you will have example copy to follow the framework. Over time, with on-the-job and external training (online or in person) we would hope you would progress to being able to write original copy for others to follow. This would involve developing a framework, positioning, tone of voice and use of keywords, specific to the needs of the product and brand.

  • From time to time, you may need to brief external writers and approve their work. 
  • From time to time, you may need to assist or give holiday cover to the Creative Manager (i.e.: overseeing and tracking which projects are at which stage). 
  • Writing articles about Optimizon/ Amazon  for company blogs, website, thought leadership articles etc .
