Senior Creative Copywriter

Here’s what you’ll bring to the role:

Big brand thinking. You have experience working with brand strategists and designers in creating exciting brand identities where tone of voice plays a leading part in delivering the brand idea. You can amply demonstrate how you turn strategy into a simple, compelling story, brought to life through vision statements, propositions and TOV guidelines. And if a company or a product needs a name, you do that too.

Creative first, copywriter second. You have plenty of experience working with art directors in creating multi-channel campaigns. You like to step outside of your box to suggest visual execution, and are happy to present the work – visual as well as verbal ideas.

You can also write content for digital or print, but it’s the big idea and the winning line that excites you.

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. 

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 for all the team to enjoy. 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 – No Added Nonsense. It’s the lens we apply to everything we do. No bullshit. Just great ideas, great relationships and results that speak for themselves.

If this role sounds like it could be yours, why not drop a note to me, Kate Gorringe, at I love great copywriters, so will be very keen to meet you.
