Cramer Associate Creative Director, Copy in Norwood, Massachusetts
Cramer needs an Associate Creative Director, Copy. There’s lots of you out there, but we’re really going to fall for the one who: Takes on a project and digs deep. Real deep. You get smart about your client’s brand, personality, competition, and challenges. You ask the right questions, research the right topics, and are good at getting the information you need. Clients like you because they can tell that you care. You’re assertive—not brash—and are great at sharing opinions and listening. Oh, and you write. You write very well. It doesn’t matter what industry. Retail, healthcare, finance, technology. If you don’t know it, you’re happy to figure it out. The form doesn’t matter either. Long, short, micro. Scripts, blogs, brochures. You have your way with words regardless of medium. And you’re willing to kill your darlings. Because that’s what great writers do. We could go on and on, but you wouldn’t approve of verbosity. We’ll let bullets do the rest.
At Cramer, you’ll get the chance to put all that proficiency to work on a broad range of projects including events, marketing campaigns, branding, and activations. Plus you’ll work with an uncommon mix of super nice, intellectually curious people from just about every creative discipline.
