Description

This is a remote, full-time contract position open to candidates in New Zealand.

JOB DESCRIPTION

Brafton Content Writers are dedicated to producing strong, creative pieces that are incorporated into content marketing campaigns for clients. Client experience is paramount for us, meaning you are expected to communicate directly with them. Viable candidates must handle white papers, case studies, landing pages, infographic outlines, video blog scripts and long-form articles based on an approved brief.

The majority of our clients are B2B and their industries span technology, health, finance, business, education and marketing. Writing and researching confidently, and on deadline, in these spaces is a must. If you are interested in joining a company on the forefront of innovation and creativity in the content marketing industry, please apply immediately.

ESSENTIAL JOB FUNCTIONS

  • Research, create and deliver high-quality content to clients according to specified deadlines
  • Edit the work of peers using Brafton’s editing marks and processes
  • Work with account management to ensure that clients’ goals are achieved
  • Virtually attend project, client and team meetings
  • Track writing and editing production work on a daily basis in our in-house project management system
  • Brainstorm and provide topics for clients monthly based on their creative brief and/or industry
  • Communicate directly with clients
  • SKILLS & REQUIREMENTS:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism, Marketing or Communications strongly preferred
  • 1-3 years of relevant content marketing industry writing experience
  • Excellent writing and editing skills. Applicants who provide relevant writing clips strongly preferred
  • Extreme attention to detail
  • Knowledge of AP (Associated Press) style
  • Understanding of SEO keywords and concepts behind branded writing
  • Excellent time management and organizational skills
  • Desire to work in a fast-paced, high-volume, deadline-oriented environment.
  • Self-starter with the ability to work independently, as well as a valuable member of a team
  • Creative mind regarding a client’s brief/marketing goals
  • Strong phone presence for client phone calls and interviews
  • Ability to work with other departments in the company, such as account management, sales, social media, and other production departments, such as video and design.
  • This is a 100% remote working role, so location is not important. Your immediate supervisor would be based out of our Boston Office in the US, however you’ll be able to operate day to day in your local time zone, but on occasion be able to adjust your schedule to cover meetings or calls with staff and clients in the US.

    As such you must be setup to operate effectively from your own work-space and be comfortable with pure remote / home-based working. Brafton’s core business is heavily remote focused – and was so well before the COVID-19 pandemic, as such the business is extremely agile and well adapted to such working practices.

    Remote Writers are responsible for providing and maintaining at their own cost and expense their own computer infrastructure, internet connection and any industry-related hardware.
