Marketing Specialist [Contractor] – Pedestrian Jobs

Bossy. is a Melbourne-based copywriting studio that specialises in tone of voice development, website copy, digital content, social copy and anything else with words in it. When we’re not writing copy, we can be found chatting over at The Bossy. Type podcast, and teaching our course, Bossy. Copy College.

We’re also home to the Bossy. Supergroup, which is really just a fun way of saying that we’re a team of freelance strategists, writers and editors — each with an individual writing style, a certain copywriting skill or specialty, or loads of experience within a particular industry.

  • Score bonus points if you’re comfortable with Facebook ad strategy and management

  • Have an energetic attitude and a proactive nature — you’re driven by results and take charge of your role
  • Possess all the usual must-haves, in particular: spectacular time management, attention to detail, written + verbal communication and (obvious, but here we go) spelling and grammar skills
