Why Us?

We run mobile phone recycling comparison site Compare and Recycle - one of the biggest and best in the industry. Our platform allows customers to get the most value out of their old mobile phones and provide all the information they need to make the process as easy as possible.

As part of a growing team you will soon be making a significant impact to our output in a relaxed but highly skilled environment with the opportunity to learn and grow with the company. We never stop looking to improve and want to make our product as good as it can be. We look to innovate whenever possible and encourage new ideas and solutions

The Role

Can you write evocative, thought provoking content? Are you willing to champion e-waste recycling? Can you identify nuanced differences between the hundreds of phones released a year? Then we want you writing on Compare and Recycle!

Our content regularly gets featured in national news and is used as a resource for many doing research on mobile phone sustainability and price history statistics. We want to expand on our expertise and quality of writing and are therefore looking for a creative content writer to join our friendly team. You'll be a key part of a growing, dynamic and agile marketing team who focuses on producing engaging, interesting content that is relevant to our target audiences.

Key Responsibilities:

* You'll be creating long and short form digital marketing content, predominantly across our digital channels such as blog and on-site SEO that will excel in Google search results and drive relevant organic traffic.

* You will be involved in production and distribution of PR materials and outreach content as well as Social Media. You will also have opportunities to be creative with offline collateral, advertising, email copy and key message creation too.

* We need someone who can diversify the content and style of individual pieces in line with their purpose - whether it is intended to inform, engage or sell and make sure it adheres to SEO standards.

* You'll need to keep up to date with market trends, industry insight and competitors.

* We need someone to identify customers' needs and gaps in our existing content and recommend new engaging content types and topics.

* You'll need a genuine interest in smartphones, other tech and sustainability.

* Remote based for time being but opportunity for flexibility around office/home working in the future.

* Full training will be given on our in-house content management system.

Skills required:

* We need a self starter who is able to work on their own initiative to come up with creative content ideas that meet our audience's interests.

* Ability to own the process of creative content writing from researching industry-related topics and initial keyword research, through to planning, structuring and producing high quality content.

* You'll have a familiarity with Public Relations and outreach techniques to help promote and engage audiences through web publications.

* Excellent writing and editing skills in English.

* Analyse and report on content performance.

* Adobe Creative Suite skills (photoshop, illustrator etc) would be advantageous
