Presentation Copywriter / Content Writer / Storyteller

No matter what your current job title is, if you’re a born communicator, you’re passionate about telling stories, and you live to create tight copy, this may be the job you’ve been waiting for.

Buffalo 7 is a specialist agency operating in the clearly-defined niche of presentation design. And we’re serious about being the very best. Our client list reads like a who’s who of the world’s top companies. And once a client works with us, they usually come back for more.

Our products look amazing, work flawlessly and leave our clients’ audiences awestruck. But before any of this can happen, we need skilled content, copy and storytelling experts to craft a compelling narrative as the backbone of the entire project.

And that’s where you could come in.

What we’re really looking for is a motivated writer with experience of corporate-style messaging, as well as traditional copywriting.

But on top of that, we want someone who can really get into our clients’ culture and goals to identify their key messages and strategically craft them into powerful stories.

You’ll be reporting to our Head of Storytelling, as we seek to strengthen the content team in our swanky new Manchester office.

As a person, you are hyper-organised, empathetic, self-aware and ready to collaborate with our broader team of super-talented people. Fun is at the heart of what we do, and we work hard to foster a culture – not just of the clichéd “work hard, play hard” – but also one of belonging.

Together, we have a shared vision of creating fantastic results for our clients and enjoying the process.

Your day to day

Reporting immediately to the Head of Storytelling, you will:

  • Meet with clients either face-to-face, or via video call, to discuss their requirements, offer solutions and device a strong structure for their presentation or e-Learning modules.
  • Review existing content, research the client, plan the story and flow, and ultimately produce the content itself.
  • Create other creative content, including blogs, social media, and a range of other internal and external content.
  • Brief projects into the studio’s Design and Development teams to progress the clients’ vision.
  • Support the studio with any content and proofing requirements they have.

The ideal candidate

  • A positive, “go get ‘em” attitude will see you fit into this team. Everyone rolls up their sleeves and gets stuck in.
  • First-class writing, proofing and creative abilities.
  • Adept at understanding and realising client briefs.
  • Demonstrable experience of high-quality written content, with samples of work.
  • Solid editorial judgement (language, tone of voice, grammar, syntax, spelling).
  • Strong research skills.
  • A knowledge of Microsoft PowerPoint – the candidate will need to be aware of how their work will fit into a presentation format.
  • Skilled at accurately capturing and delivering on client feedback.
  • Adhering to the tone of voice requested by the client.
  • Articulate and confident, both written and verbally.
  • Excellent command of the English language.
  • Highly-motivated personality with a work ethic that produces precise results.
  • Proactive and able to work with minimal direction.
  • Ability to build strong, collaborative relationships with clients and colleagues alike.
  • Excellent understanding of varying brands, tone of voice and alternating styles of writing.
  • A strong focus on delivery and the ability to get things done at a fast pace and to a high standard.
  • The ability to spot opportunities and solutions where others may not.
  • Bags of empathy and a high level of emotional intelligence, energy and positivity.

The reward

Beyond a salary in the region of £20-23.5K (dependent on experience) you will additionally benefit from:

  • 20 days (plus bank hols) annual leave, increasing with every year of service.
  • Private medical care
  • Eye care
  • High Street discounts
  • Subsidised gym membership
  • Low-cost cinema tickets

How to apply

If you’re a “rinse and repeat” type job applicant, you’re about to come unstuck.

Please follow these instructions carefully to ensure we actually read your application.

1. Please email your application directly to careers@buffalo7.co.uk

2. Start the title of your email with the code COPYAPP.

Having this code at the start of the email title will do nothing more than demonstrate you paid attention. It helps us sort out the applicants who are genuinely interested from those just applying for everything.
You can be as imaginative as you like with the rest of your subject line (… hint).

3. DO please use the body of the email to include a covering letter of some description. We’ll use this intro to decide whether to even look at your CV. So put your powers of creative writing to good use and get us to read all about you in your CV. And remember: a good copywriter shouldn’t have any typos, grammar or punctuation mistakes.

4. There is a deliberate typo in this job ad. Tell us what it is in the covering letter too.
