Vacancy Title: Copywriter Apprentice

Vacancy Type: Full-Time

Salary: £140 Weekly

Duration: 12 Months

Start Date: ASAP

We’re a small but brilliant team of creative copywriters. Our job is to write words that sell, tell, entertain and inspire. These words might be for global brands, FTSE 500 companies or local entrepreneurs. They might go on websites, adverts, brochures or social media sites.

Often we partner with creative and advertising agencies, working on projects that range from housing developers to hipster coffee, Premier League football clubs to plumbers. Check us out at www.treacle-copy.com.

We work remotely, some days from our Central London space, other days at home. We might all meet and work in a cafe or a hotel too.

You’ll need to be comfortable travelling around London on your own.

Ideally, you’ll have your own laptop. If not, we’ll see what we can do. It’s not a deal-breaker.

You’ll write. Day in, day out.

Sometimes on cool stuff, sometimes not.

You’ll be shown how to design words to make people think, feel and act.

It’s not poetry. It’s not creative writing. It’s not about lovely long sentences and flowery words.

You’ll learn how to say more with less.

This is copywriting – the art of persuasion.

You’ll work with Senior Copywriters on a range of projects.

Initially, you’ll write internal copy – blogs, articles, social media etc.

Once you’re ready, you’ll write client copy – web pages, blogs, advertising, brochures etc.

Towards the end you’ll be ready to handle client accounts.


We need a natural writer. A sharp tongue and a clear mind. A brand thinker who can write in a thousand voices.

It’s not about your education or experience, it’s about your personality and your passion.

When applying, please submit 20 words maximum for each of these tasks:

1. Explain how to make a cup of tea to an 8 year old.

2. Create a slogan for a new luxury pen aimed at successful business people.

3. Tell us your life story.
