Midweight Creative Copywriter wanted

We’re an ambitious, fast-growing independent agency with a national reputation for brand expertise. The imaginative use of language has a front seat in every new brand we create, and every campaign we deliver, so you’ll be crafting copy which leaves our clients delighted, inspired and wanting more. Here’s what you’ll bring to the role:

A brilliant track record. You’ll have solid experience writing copy for a variety of brands, and a portfolio bursting with stunning work. You’ve got a knack for writing copy that demands attention, adept at flexing your tone, phrasing, and terminology for different audiences. You can write content for digital or print when needed, but your main focus is the big idea and the winning headline. You’re happiest working alongside designers, art directors and videographers to develop concepts that wow. In fact, you’re brimming with ideas beyond the written word.

A safe pair of hands. With a great grasp of grammar and a keen eye for detail – nothing escapes you. You’re dependable, reliable and level-headed. You’ll proof work to perfection, able to work across multiple projects as needed, and adapting your tone as appropriate.

You know people, and how to bring them on side. You are a persuasive presenter, and enjoy building the trust and respect of your clients and colleagues. You know what good looks like, and have strong rationales and structured processes to help sell your ideas. 

You take ownership. Taking time to get under the skin of your clients and their issues, you are proactive in digging out the information you need and in driving projects forward. 

You’re an agency voice with thoughts and ideas you want to share with the wider world. You don’t shy away from writing an article on a topic you care about, and you take a keen interest in making friends amongst clients and the wider creative community.

All about us

Mr B & Friends is a Bristol-based agency with a global perspective – many of our people forged their careers in London and overseas agencies, and our clients range from entrepreneurial start-ups to worldwide brands. We are sector agnostic, working equally across B2B and B2C, but with particular strength in tech, leisure, FS, manufacturing
and sport.

With a full-time staff of c.30 people, we’re well placed to handle complex strategic projects entirely in-house, while still feeling like the energised, supportive team we’ve been from the start.

The ‘Friends’ in our name isn’t spin. We look after our people – many have been with us for five or more years (and there’s loyalty bonuses that go along with that).

If it’s glory you’re after, then we win awards too, including the likes of The Drum and the Transform Awards. But really, it’s a bi-product – our focus is building great relationships with clients who come to us for exciting and effective work.

We also have a great Employee Benefits scheme called The Friends Pact. There are an additional 27 employee benefits outside salary, holiday and pension on offer – including a 4.5 day week, which means we finish at 1pm on Fridays (we’re trialling this, just to make sure it works!). Ask to see our Friends Pact document for details.

If you really want to ‘get’ our culture, then you have to understand our brand positioning – ‘challenge the ordinary’. It’s the lens we apply to everything we do. 

If this role sounds like it could be yours, why not drop a note to our Senior Creative Copywriter, Sarah O’Connell, at

We’ll be conducting initial interviews by video, and second interviews in person at our Bristol office.

We will ensure that individuals with disabilities are provided reasonable accommodation to participate in the job application or interview process, to perform essential job functions, and to receive other benefits of employment. We invite applicants to share pronouns, to ensure we address you appropriately.
