877 Copywriter Job Description 

Are you a witty wordsmith? Do you love creating impactful, strategic stories for a wide variety of clients?

Can you juggle multiple projects at once? Are you well-equipped in every avenue of communication, from social media, to blogs, to SEO-focused web content? Do you love working closely alongside your teammates?


If you answered yes to all these questions, then you may have what it takes to become the new copywriter at Agency 877! If you want a career that always keeps you on your toes, this one’s for you.

You’re also the final pair of eyes to see each deliverable, so the quality of all written content falls back on you.
