Copywriter

  • Wellington
  • Competitive base salary plus Xero shares

Ready to join the tide of creatives joining the tech industry? Here’s your chance to be our new copywriter and shape a global brand that Forbes calls ‘The World's Most Innovative Growth Company” both in 2014 and 2015

Welcome to Xero. A company that’s driven by helping millions of small businesses do their work beautifully.

We’re looking for a copywriter to join our internal agency based in Wellington. You should have a couple of years learning the ropes at an advertising agency but you’re keen to do more. Already in your career you’ve written your first entertaining script, know your way around a persuasive email or come up with an unmissable social campaign. You might have a background in direct and looking for a bit of brand experience. Whatever the media, whatever the audience, you’re motivated by doing work that works. You take the copywriter job description as a starting point and right now, you are looking for a place to spread your wings.

Coming from agency land, work/life balance is probably a concept as mythical as a rainbow pooping unicorn. Round here, work/life balance means exactly what it should mean. Doing the best work of your career, but getting a chance to be inspired by the world outside the office doors too.

If your previous work shows promise, you’ll get the chance to join our up and coming internal agency. Working with award winning creatives with years of experience in NZ’s top agencies, plus collaborate with other tech creative shops like Facebook and Google.

TVC OF THE WEEK

Who's it for: Ecostore by DDB

Why we like it: For its first brand campaign, Ecostore is making itself heard with a powerful message about the future that will have the audience questioning their outlook. As a brand that promotes itself as being safe for consumers and the world they live in, examining the dichotomy between the optimism of youth and the pessimism of the older generation shows our environment doesn't have to be set for a future of melted ice caps and deforestation. There is hope out there and clearly, Ecostore wants to be apart of it.

Who's it for: Flick Electric by Special Ad Service

Why we like it: While many people have their aha moments in the shower or while exercising, others, according to Flick Electric, have them while performing taxidermy on birds. It may be an odd image for a power company, but the tongue-in-cheek approach shows the company is willing to have a bit of fun as it goes about recruiting new customers. 

Who's it for: Jockey New Zealand by Parlour

Why we like it: It's hard to ignore the obvious appeal of seeing the All Blacks strip down to their Jockeys for the entirety of the video and for those who aren't as fazed by what lies beneath the black jersey, it's an insight into what the boys get up to off the field. Apparently, Anton Lienert Brown enjoys peanut butter on toast and sailing. And while special guest and former Shortland Street star Will Hall doesn't strip down completely, a special mention has to be given to his bravery to sit alongside the undressed All Blacks in just Jockeys and a robe.
