Creative Copywriter

Posted on March 4, 2019 by

Copywriters at zag creative are masters of their craft. They love language, understand the spaces they’re working within, and are probably critiquing billboards on their way to the office. They’re also strategic thinkers who work hand-in-hand with our design, digital, and strategy team to ensure they’re creating copy that rises above (and quite frankly, demolishes) any challenge.

We’re looking for a talented creative copywriter to join our growing team. You know how to create content for many different types of clients across a variety of spaces, and are able to change your voice for all of them. From website content to social media executions, radio scripts, or brochures, it’s all about creating great copy with confidence. Heck, you know what you’re doing and can back it up any day to anyone. 

Our ideal candidate is great with concepts and creative writing, has an understanding of the Canadian Press Stylebook, and a knack for all forms of copy. You’re a natural storyteller with an eagle eye. You don’t skip a beat when it comes to attention to detail, and can pick out a commonly misspelled word from a mile away. It’s just all in a day’s work.

What the gig would entail:

  • Develop, edit and proof copy for various client projects as required (including but not limited to print ad copy, press releases, social media, brochure copy, radio scripts, television scripts, sales pieces, web copy, online ad copy, etc.)
  • Prepare concept overviews for clients
  • Participate in and help facilitate client discovery sessions / larger meetings
  • Participate in internal brainstorming sessions and creative concept development
  • Work in conjunction with the Creative Department to ensure materials developed maintain consistency, creative vision, and strategy
  • Proofing creative materials and written documents
  • Participate in the development and presentation of client pitches
  • Assisting with photo and video shoots as required
  • Correspondence with clients and maintaining client contacts, as directed
  • Work on developing creative concepts and content for internal communications materials such as the zag creative website, promotional pieces, etc.

As a guru of words, you should have no problem telling us what makes you the best fit for the copywriter role. Forward your resume to Trina Danis, VP Creative Services at trina@zagcreative.ca. This posting is for a part-time role to start (half days, 20 hours per week). The ideal candidate will have at least two years of experience. Short-listed applicants will be contacted for interviews.

Account Manager

Posted on February 7, 2018 by

Agency life can sometimes be as busy as a three-ring circus, which means as an account manager, you’re going to need to know how to juggle projects, walk a tightrope with budgeting, and perform the occasional magic trick.

You know that staying on top of client needs is just part of the equation.

You also need to be able to leverage your client knowledge to help provide strategic support.

If you fit the bill of an experienced account manager willing to work hard on behalf of our clients and team, send your resume to Marilee Marin at marilee@zagcreative.ca and tell us why you are our next great hire.
