Could you be our newest content marketing specialist and writer?

Posted on

Leading content marketing agency seeks passionate marketer and writer to make sweet, beautiful content together.

‚ÄčEvery brand worth its salt has a content marketing strategy. But a staggering number aren't doing it properly – in fact, 52 per cent admit they're no good at content marketing, and that makes us sad. But it also drives us: at Axonn Media, we believe in simplifying content marketing for everyone.

That's where you come in. We're looking for a Content Marketing Specialist and Writer to join our Manchester or Leeds office, where you'll have the chance to flex your creative muscles in planning and producing high-quality content that our clients – and their audiences – will adore.

We're looking for someone whose skill set goes much further than writing. You'll need to be a well-rounded content marketer, equally comfortable working on content strategy, taking the lead with our partners, managing your workload, and collaborating with our in-house graphics, social, outreach, video production and animation teams.

And you'll need to have a genuine passion for content marketing. Our six core values underpin everything we do, so if you don't love content marketing or have a real desire to keep bang up to date with all the latest industry trends – whether that's Google updates, new types of content, or a new tool to improve our service – then Axonn probably isn't the place for you!

On the other hand, if you like what you've read so far, take a look at our Content Marketing Specialist and Writer job description and let us know why you believe you'd be a perfect fit for the job...
