Job title: Senior Copywriter , April Six, London

Reports to: Associate Creative Director


As an experienced and progressive Senior Copywriter, you will play a leading and very active role in creating and executing campaigns for our tier one tech clients, nurturing more junior writing talent, and generating new business for the agency by developing your own powerful partnerships with our clients.

Headquartered in London and with a presence in Bournemouth, Bristol, Munich, San Francisco and Singapore, we pride ourselves on pushing the boundaries of creativity and marketing excellence.


As part of MISSION, our Agency has access to capabilities and services not typically found in specialist tech agencies, meaning our talented staff are not only able to gain an unusual depth and breadth of experience, but are also able to offer innovative and often unexpected and creative solutions for our client briefs, driving highly valued and long-terms partnerships.
