Could you use your writing skills to help create a future where everyone diagnosed with breast cancer lives and is supported to live well?

We’re here for anyone affected by breast cancer. And we’re only here because of the amazing people that work for us.

We’re looking for a copywriter to join our busy, dynamic and creative team and help make sure that one day, no one in the UK dies from breast cancer.

As part of our in-house copy studio, you’ll craft copy, communications and key messages in response to briefs from teams across the charity – from fundraising to support services and marketing.

You’ll be a champion of our new tone of voice and house style, supporting colleagues to apply our brand to their copy and making their words the best they can be.

You’ll also use your skills and experience to adapt messages for different audiences, and make sure the diverse experiences and needs of people affected by breast cancer are always at the heart of our communications.

If you’re a creative, thoughtful copywriter or communications professional looking for your next step in an ambitious, forward-thinking charity, we’d love to meet you.

About you

Ideally you:

·       Will be a copywriter (or in a role focused on writing) who puts their audience at the heart of every piece of writing

·       Are self-motivated, organised and comfortable working on several briefs at once

·       Enjoy looking for new ways to approach long-standing campaigns and projects, and engaging ways to present complex information

·       Are a creative thinker, with a portfolio of work that shows your ability to write, edit and adapt copy for different channels and audiences
