About the position
About the role
For the past ten years we have been taking this Rock ‘N’ Roll heritage and distilling it into a line of headphones and speakers to inspire a new set of Marshall devotees. Now, we are actively looking for a new team member who lives at the intersection of lifestyle and technology, and who has a knack for innovation. If you’re a thinker and a doer, and enjoy iterating new ideas, we’d love to hear from you!
As a Copywriter for the Marshall brand you will help shape brand experiences and set the tone of voice for the brand with clear and consistent messaging across both online and offline channels. You are an out-of-the-box thinker, who understands the Marshall point of view within the music world, and uses that knowledge to draft smart, engaging and effective marketing copy from product messaging, to social ads and beyond. This will also involve establishing a global style guide. Although you will write in native English, the Marshall copywriter will create a unified voice that works all over the world. You will be collaborating with many disciplines and will need to translate the Marshall brand with empathy and understanding.
Roles & Responsibilities

• Continually raise the bar on creativity, writing copy that resonates with the target audience, reflects the brand values and drives action.

• Write all copy for marketing collateral, across various formats and channels including packaging, print, video/film, social, digital, marketing, email, promotions, e-commerce and retail. This may include, but is not limited to;
o Product messaging (product/feature naming, taglines, descriptions, USP’s, packaging)
o E-Commerce (website, newsletters, banners, social ads, search, micro-sites)
o PR (press releases, FAQs, event invitations)
o Social (blog posts, occasional consulting on social posts)
o Retail (Point of sale displays)

Who we're looking for
