Freelance Copywriter wanted!
ChangeStar is a fundraising and social change agency helping not-for-profit organisations to seek a better world. We are leaders in direct marketing fundraising from individuals – we get the best results you are likely to find anywhere.We are a busy and growing agency, and are seeking a talented and experienced direct marketing fundraising copywriter. You will be producing copy for a range of clients and media including direct mail packs, digital content (including emails, web content and blogs) and press ads.
You’ll need to have at least five years of DM fundraising copywriting experience, which must include some experience within an agency. You’ll be comfortable developing conceptual ideas and writing copy for both recruitment and donor development campaigns across all major media (including cold, inserts, press, telephone, DRTV and digital). You’ll also have a portfolio that demonstrates your skills, experience and record of success in getting great results.
You’ll be able to present your ideas and background thinking (to both colleagues and clients) in an articulate and confident way. Your experience will have given you an appreciation of what works in fundraising copy, but you’ll retain a willingness to adapt to feedback and to learn more about new techniques and ideas in copywriting and fundraising.
You’ll also need to have a demonstrable passion for the issues that we work with – including progressive politics, the environment and social justice. We’d also like to work with someone who is professional, very well organised, with an eye for detail and ability to get things done, but who is also calm, relaxed and friendly.
This role can be home based, but you will need to be able to attend client and team meetings when needed. We are based in Lewes, just 7 miles from Brighton and 1 hour’s direct train journey from London. You’ll be joining a friendly and fun organisation that is really going places.
