Will Gregory Recruitment Director

Are you a skilled writer and content professional by trade? Do you understand the technical side of developing SEO-optimised digital content that cuts through and outranks the competitors?

On behalf of our client, an established NZ SaaS company, The Pond Recruitment is looking for an Intermediate Digital Writer to join their high-performing SEO Marketing Team. You will play a part in developing the content strategy for this digital product and service, however, most of your day will be spent writing and working with other creatives to deliver written content that will grow organic search traffic and acquisition of new users. This role is based in NZ but has a focus on Australian audiences, so you’ll have to know your craft, as you’ll be contending in a highly competitive market.

You will be creatively led and strategic by nature, able to develop and write digital copy that engages and delights the reader, but most importantly adopt the key principles for developing SEO content that really works. This role is not about churning out digital content for the sake of it, this content has a purpose and must reach new audiences organically, and drive conversion of new users to sign up and use an intelligent platform that connects people with trusted partners and professionals in the design and building industry.

You could be sitting digital agency-side right now, over the lack of creative ownership and churning out fluff pieces that don’t generate real results or cut through. Or you could be already working client-side for a business that doesn’t value the power of strategic content. 

Either way, you are ready for a change! You’ll be ambitious and hands-on by nature, positive, and collaborative person with the ability to roll up your sleeves to crack the brief with special content that engages and performs. An upbeat personality is key, and you’ll be confident to reach out, and proactively collaborate with other creatives and marketers to deliver quality work.

If you’ve been waiting for a role combining your strategy, ideation, and digital writing skills, then this is it - APPLY TODAY!
