Current vacancies August 2022: Senior or Principal Business Writing Consultant

(relevant to those with public relations, copywriting and marketing experience) – initial role level dependent on prior experience

Helping businesses pick and enter awards is what we do for a living. This role will enable you to work on entries across a range of industries and clients (including many FTSE 350 companies and major global brands).

You’ll be producing accurate, engaging written award submissions for business awards which can vary in length from 650 to 10,000 words. Your job is to reduce the workload for the client while maximising their chances of winning. This client-facing role will see you take ownership of the writing of award entries from scratch, and potentially even manage client accounts.

Currently, this role requires you to largely work from home, with the hope that you will occasionally meet your colleagues at a shared Bournemouth office and company get-togethers.

As a unique organisation, we don’t expect candidates to have had specific experience within the sphere of award entry consulting. That said, if you have experience of writing winning award entries, and/or acting as a consultant in a marketing or PR capacity, then this would undoubtedly strengthen your application.

The following transferable experience and skills are required for the role:

  • Copywriting: You’ll be an experienced copywriter, an expert at finding the angle in a story and producing persuasive, accurate copy, with adaptable tones/styles. Award submissions also require an understanding of how businesses operate, and the ability to understand and present evidence/statistics in a compelling way (although Boost also has an evaluation team that can support you with this).
  • Account management: You’ll be able to build strong relationships with Managers/CEOs/Directors of new and repeat clients, with the gravitas to present and field questions confidently (remotely and face-to-face).
  • Project management: You will work as part of a close-knit team, so excellent communication and team working skills are essential, particularly as your colleagues will be home-based/based at other locations.
  • Organisation skills: Awards are deadline-driven, so you will need to be able to adhere to strict turnaround times for each project.

Desirable but not essential: The ability to analyse, interpret and present multiple sources of data to draw conclusions (knowledge of Excel would be beneficial).

Salary: FTE of £28,000-£35,000 per annum on target earnings depending on experience (comprising a £25-33k per annum basic and the rest being a performance-related and company profit-related bonus); pension after three months with employer contributions (currently 3% of basic salary). We are able to offer flexible working hours, but our preference is that the successful candidate will be monitoring emails five days a week, even if only at their desk for four.

After 6 months you will also receive private medical insurance and a £100 p/month budget to spend on personal wellbeing (e.g. gym membership, physio etc).

If you think this role is right for you please send your CV to kirsty.sampson@boost-awards.co.uk with the subject line ‘Job Application’.
