Senior Ad Agency Copywriter

Schifino Lee is seeking a conceptual advertising copywriter to help build and cultivate our diverse roster of client brands. The candidate we’re looking for will be able to collaborate with brand strategists and brilliant art directors to craft compelling messages and big ideas for robust omni-channel campaigns, digital and social content pieces, and ad hoc projects – both short-form and long-form. You should be versatile and able to write in different voices and formats. Most importantly, we’re looking for a seasoned writer who can generate original concepts that not only win awards, but also win over our clients with exceptional ROI.

Here you will wear many, many hats and have an abundance of opportunities to flex your right brain. You certainly won’t be stuck on one client or brand, and your day in the life will never be dull. You may be crafting an emotional video script, writing post copy for a social campaign, helping manage a photo shoot or recording a podcast – it’s all in a day’s work. Don’t worry, we supply plenty of espresso!

Specifics you MUST have:

  • 3+ years, preferred agency experience, not working in a silo, or for yourself in your brother’s garage apartment
  • Solid portfolio of traditional, digital and video work for legitimate clients
  • Exceptional ability to write in a variety of styles for diverse audiences, with an ability to adapt your voice to each project with ease
  • Passion for discovering new ways to tell a brand’s story that builds relationships with its customers
  • Confidence and articulateness to present your work internally and externally to clients
  • Ability to pay attention to detail and carefully proofread your work and others
  • Strong affinity for creating an engaging social and digital experience
  • Ability to maintain stellar file management, following department guidelines
  • Innate desire to work collaboratively as part of a larger team in a fast-paced environment
  • Desire to take on new challenges, grow and learn every day
  • Humbleness and personal accountability to ensure that messaging performs well against business goals
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint

Really-nice-to-haves that
would set you apart:

  • Strong understanding and knowledge of SEO
  • Strong script writing and video production experience
  • PR writing
