We’re seeking a talented writer – someone who is technically strong and produces excellent copy, with a fantastic level of attention to detail and an engaging turn of phrase. You’ll be adept at writing creatively for a vast range of audiences, being able to strike the right tone and bring messages to life. What’s also important is your love of language – we’re looking for someone who is passionate about their work and who genuinely enjoys writing and playing with semantics; we’re eager to see a strong portfolio of work which clearly demonstrates your enthusiasm and abilities.
Culture is also key – we need you to really understand what LYNX is about, to understand our values, how we work and to be able to portray this successfully. We’re an incredibly close-knit team so we’re eager to hear from those who are confident to share their ideas, who work collaboratively with others and who get stuck in, always happy to try a fresh approach and something different.
The role of Editorial Assistant is a new position in our Manchester office – it will form part of our Brand Team, who are responsible for managing our industry presence. Your role in this team will see you lead elements of activity, such as:
• Creating formal press releases
• Writing blog posts for our website
• Contributing to the creation of white papers
• Supporting in the preparation of client based materials e.g. collateral for congress
• Maintaining our social media presence – producing and responding to Tweets and Facebook updates
We pride ourselves on our culture and firmly believe this is what sets us apart – so in addition to the above, you will also work on a whole host of internal initiatives, ensuring the associated collateral is engaging, memorable and ultimately, that it captures people’s interest and is successful in delivering the intended message.
We’re a healthcare communications agency – this means we operate within the healthcare and wellness sectors, producing communications campaigns that really add value and enhance people’s lives. The Brand Team play a key part in this – we need to ensure our presence in industry is strong so that we can share our findings; keeping them as targeted, engaging and as innovative as possible.
What’s more, we like to keep our internal teams informed of what’s happening and what’s on the horizon – we like to celebrate our successes too, so it’s imperative that our internal messages and events carry the same level of creativity, personality and attention to detail as those that are market-facing.
This role will offer you the chance to use your skills and get involved with the exciting projects we undertake, all the while knowing that you’re working for a good cause and contributing to the values we believe in; helpful change.
