Octagon, Inc. Copywriter (Healthcare) in New York, New York

Copywriter - Healthcare

We Are Seeking

We are seeking a talented Copywriter to join our team in New York. Healthcare creative is often seen as boring and conservative. We work every day to prove that not to be true. But it takes a special type of creative.

You're someone who:

Loves to be challenged

Gets to the point, fast

Is a team player

Thinks outside of the box

Is ready to raise their hand

What You Will Be Doing:

Craft overall campaign messaging direction, maintaining consistency.

Write short- and long-form copy including concept manifesto, digital/social copy, video script, pitch documents and a range of campaign material.

Develop and adhere to multiple brand voices.

Collaborate with the greatest minds across the network.

Join client meetings, brainstorms and planning sessions for ongoing projects.

Build and maintain strong rapport with creative team colleagues, client leads and project managers.

Cultivate an inclusive culture as a part of the team that values trust, honesty, and team accountability towards defined goals and results.

Basic Qualifications:

2-5 years of copywriting experience in a related agency, department or industry (advertising, digital, social media, publishing/content or public relations).

An interest in the healthcare/pharmaceutical space.

Must have a portfolio (share anything that conveys the way you think or approach assignments, even if it was never produced).

Be curious, self-motivated, hard-working, well-organized, thick skinned and resilient to ever-changing timelines, requests, and deliverables.

Ongoing drive to learn and incorporate new and emerging techniques, trends and philosophies in design, technology, interaction, and social media.

Advanced knowledge of brand development, marketing/advertising, and the creative process.

Additional Qualifications:

Knowing what makes for compelling work - be it on social platforms, in video, or in launch ideas that get talked about, reported on, and pointed to by other agencies with an "I wish we'd thought to do that" envy.

Ability to effectively communicate through any medium (a script, a tweet, a pin, a manifesto, a speech).
