Copywriter and Content Manager

You will be working for Explovia as Copywriter and Content Manager

Explovia Overview:

Explovia is a London start-up on an ambitious mission to spark conversations about London’s events.

We have launched with an iOS and Android app with content managed via a desktop back-end. We currently target London, with the clear ambition to expand across other major cities.

We are a founder-funded, well-capitalised business that is positioned to disrupt the world of mobile messaging, social sharing and buying. We are a friendly and experienced team who have previously worked in management roles at Virgin, News International, Group Commerce, Goldman Sachs and Rocket Internet amongst others.

Position Scope:

Explovia is seeking an entrepreneurial, experienced copywriter, with the ability to effectively describe our events and content in a concise and compelling way to engage and delight our users. In addition to copywriting events for publication on the mobile app, you’ll also be responsible for copywriting the weekly newsletter and contributing to the marketing material.

This role will report to the Creative Director. You will help to define and evolve the company’s tone of voice and be an instrumental member of the operations team. You’ll have a serious impact as an early member of the team as we grow our user base and launch new products.

You will know and love London – the best spots, the most exciting places, what’s happening tonight and what’s around the corner. This is a job for someone passionate about all that this great city has to offer, and who wants to excite others.

We want you to be quietly ambitious, hacky (= get it done), and a tiny bit (but not too much!) of a perfectionist. We recruit based on skills and talent and look for a bit of a spark.


Responsibilities:

  • Own the copy generation and brand tone of voice for Explovia
  • Copywrite event and other content descriptions for publication on the mobile app
  • Copywrite weekly newsletter and other marketing collateral for the company
  • Ensure consistency of Explovia brand tone across events, in-app instructional copy and other brand touch points (e.g. website, app store and e-mail)

Required skills:

  • Must have professional work samples (printed, Web-based, or PDFs) for review
  • A flair for writing engaging, informative, witty copy
  • Great team-working skills as well as self-motivation
  • Knowledge of the London area
  • An understanding of London’s going-out culture
  • Ability to easily identify salient points of content to effectively draw users’ attention and spark interest
  • Initiative to research and write intelligently on unfamiliar topics
  • Solid writing skills and a creative approach
  • Passion for good spelling, punctuation and grammar
  • Must have superior attention to detail, organizational skills, and a positive, energetic attitude
  • A cool head under the pressure of meeting deadlines

Advantageous:

  • Previous experience with a mobile app company
