BM Copywriter (Contract)

Reports directly to the Senior Copywriter
Job Grade : J4
Salary : RM3,500 - RM5,500

"A picture paints a thousand words." they say. A C27 copywriter is a communicator, master chameleon, an idea factory and also a champion of delightful interaction. Most of all, you are provocative, you do not succumb to the status quo. Your home is outside the box. Why can't a word paint a thousand pictures?

Purpose

“Storyteller, provocateur, mind reader, linguist, champion of nuance, you breathe life, inject narrative and interpret meaning. The start and the end of our most precious assets, our work.”

Department summary

"It's just a show!", fairy dust, pull a rabbit out of the hat, curtains close, exit stage left, fade to black. The biggest misconception when it comes to defining creativity is it's synonymous with magic. It's not. Creativity is making connections between variables that didn't seem like they were there. We juxtapose seemingly random elements to create new meaning. Contrary to popular belief, we do not simply "pluck ideas from the air" or pull a rabbit out of a damn hat. As a C27 Creative, you are a champion of empathy. From user experience design to video production, we understand that human beings are ALWAYS the key beneficiaries of our work. We celebrate individualism and personalisation, we are just as weird as how each of our audiences are unique - one size will never fit all. You are a master builder as much as you are an expert assembler. We expect you to be able to tell a story with a camera, just as much as a pen and paper. A "What If-er". Curiosity is your currency, use it well, leave the rest to the finance team.

key traits

Detail oriented, reader, clarity, concise, strong vocabulary, nuanced, curious, imaginative.
