We’re April Six, a global marketing and communications specialist, servicing brands in Technology, Science and Mobility through our deep, specialist knowledge of these core industries.

We are looking for ambitious and talented copywriters who have a desire to create moments that matter for the brands that are shaping the future. Whether writing long form, video scripts or headlines, we need someone who can connect with our clients’ customers across science and technology to persuade and inform, driving smiles, likes, shares and clicks.

We are big on ideas: they are our lifeblood and what sets April Six apart from the competition. Ideas will be important for more senior roles, so a good understanding of marketing and creative strategy, alongside the desire to sell campaigns that connect will be something that comes naturally. For junior copywriters we are looking for talent and ability to translate complex client offerings into memorable, actionable content.

The moment of truth

You’ll bring a good understanding of B2B technology and sciences such as pharma, and of writing campaigns that create memorable moments and achieve results for clients:

  • Using all the skills and linguistic weaponry in a copywriter’s arsenal to convey the benefits of complex scientific innovations and B2B technology solutions in clear and memorable ways.
  • Tailoring copy to an individual brand tone of voice, audience, media channel or content format.
  • Working with art directors or designers to co-create conceptual strategic campaign ideas that fuel both brand and/or demand generation.
  • Presenting these ideas to the Creative Director, Client Service teams and, where appropriate,
    direct to clients.
  • Maintaining a broad understanding of content marketing.
  • Researching clients to understand their markets and competitive landscape, if required.
  • Bringing new copy trends and tools to the agency to help us stay ahead of our competition.
  • Proactively contributing relevant articles to the agency blog and social media outlets.

Your moment to shine

You’ll be all of these things and more:

  • Resilient and patient, with a mature attitude.
  • Self-sufficient and comfortable taking the initiative.
  • A clear communicator with confident presentation skills.
  • Flexible, friendly and enthusiastic.
  • Possessed of an unrelenting desire to spot an opportunity to push the creative boundaries further.
  • Ready to create ‘Aha!’ moments for both emerging and some of the biggest brands in B2B and science.
