About the role

We are looking for an exceptional storyteller and copywriter - with innate curiosity, an eye for a great story and a love of language - to join our Brand team. Sitting within the broader Marketing & Communications department, the Brand team acts as custodian of our story and visual identity. And increasingly as go-to experts for creative input – sourcing compelling stories to fuel the narrative, fulfilling creative briefs, producing a regular supply of great audience relevant content for use on digital platforms, producing digital and printed corporate communications materials, as well as offering creative advice and training to other departments.

Through this role we want to:

  • Drive our digital first storytelling, exploring new ways and trends to create a richer, online experience
  • Deliver on more creative briefs in-house - as creative lead, as well as service provider
  • Demonstrate the power of storytelling and beautifully crafted copy to solve communication problems and inspire people to take action
  • Embed excellence into our storytelling and copywriting
  • Make it easier for non- experts to use our verbal identity and achieve more consistency in how it is used.

You will research and write great stories, working in collaboration with other colleagues/teams to support print and digital marketing and fundraising campaigns and activities.

Using your skill and experience to support and internal corporate communications messaging and channels by working in partnership with designers and other creative colleagues to take internal briefs, advise on the best strategies to deliver results, and develop creative concepts.

By continually looking for new ideas and innovation you will champion creativity and promote our organisational narrative and identity. Supporting with content collection on international trips, as required, to gather compelling stories of change.

About you

You will have a strong track record in researching, developing and commissioning engaging stories for range of audiences. Bringing your expertise in writing and editing to adapt messaging and tone to suit specific needs and channels including digital content for web, email, video scripts, infographics, animated gifs, and animation.

An ability to understand and interpret a creative brief, generate innovative ideas, and clearly pitch and communicate them to colleagues and external stakeholders is key. Coupled with a willingness to work across a variety of projects in a face-paced, evolving portfolio of work.

You will have a curious mind set, be self-motivated and prepared to play an active role as we work out exactly what we need to say and to whom, working in partnership with designers or strategists to solve creative problems.

Why join us?

The opportunity to work for an organisation that is making a positive difference to the lives of people worldwide, a friendly and supportive culture, working with values driven and highly engaged colleagues, work life balance and flexible working – these are just some of the reasons we think Practical Action is a great place to work.

  • Full time roles are contracted at 35 hours per week.

About us

We are an international development organisation putting ingenious ideas to work so people in poverty can change their world.

We combine these specialisms to multiply our impact and help shape a world that works better for everyone.
