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: Fly Buys by Colenso BBDO

Why we like it: While Fly Buys points are often a self-gratifying reward, this spot flips that idea on its head to celebrate the feeling you get when giving a gift. New Zealanders (and their dogs apparently) are a pretty generous bunch, which is why Fly Buys has launched the campaign to demonstrate how it can play a part in that giving.

Who's it for: Men's Health Trust by Men's Health Trust 

Why we like it: It's often said men struggle to talk about their physical and emotional wellbeing, but Men's Health Trust has managed to get 12 of them to sit down in front of the camera and open up. With the aim of getting men talking in order to reduce the statistic of one Kiwi man dying every three hours from a preventable cause, prominent New Zealanders (including Te Radar, Jack Tame and Selio Solomon) share their health related stories and talk about what it means to be a Kiwi bloke.

Who's it for: McDonald's by DDB

Why we like it: To announce that it's achieved 100 percent free-range egg use across its New Zealand restaurants, McDonald's has called-in the help of comedian Rhys Mathewson and a Robo Chicken. By sending the remote-controlled chicken into one of the farms supplying it with eggs, the spot is able to push McDonald's commitment to free range produce, as well as explain to viewers what the term actually means.

Who's it for:  King Arthur: Legend of the Sword by Roadshow Films and Undertow Media

Why we like it: Promoting an international blockbuster by changing up the trailer with a local twist isn't an approach we've seen before, but the use of WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker and UFC fighter Dan Hooker (in a second trailer) is sure to get some attention. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is about Arthur's journey to becoming a legendary fighter and leader, so who better to incorporate into that than Parker, a professional fighter, who speaks about how he overcame his own trials and pain.
