Can you help lead a campaign from the first inkling of a concept all the way through a successful launch and execution across a diverse range of platforms and media? 

Do you have big ideas, an open mind, and a way with words? If so, you could be NDG Communications’ next Senior Copywriter.

In this position, you’ll have the option to work remotely or via our corporate offices. You’ll collaborate with the Creative Director, Art Directors, Graphic Designers and Copywriters, as well as Digital Developers, Marketing Managers, and Executive Leadership. You’ll take all their research, insights, and ideas, and you’ll unite them into a messaging strategy that stirs action in the intended audience.

You’ll manage projects, along with Creative Director and Art Directors, to ensure that progress is made and deadlines are met. You’ll guarantee that everything we create for our clients meets their lofty standards and our own — which are even higher.

As the Senior Copywriter, you will also provide valuable mentor leadership to the Junior Copywriter/Proofreader, sharing the skills, insights, and motivation that will one day allow that person to become the next Senior Copywriter.

If you understand the power of words and appreciate the power of teamwork, then this could be the place for you. Let’s talk.
