Copywriter - Swindon / Remote

As our in-house copywriter, a genuine love for the written word is a must. You’ll be a talented wordsmith and will be as comfortable creating snappy headlines and compelling content as you are writing technical product specifications or manuals.

We’re looking for someone to work in our Swindon head office for 2 days a week, on a Tuesday and Thursday and 3 days working from home.

You’ll be responsible for crafting new copy in Oak Furnitureland’s distinct voice, that supports product launches, as well as improving and maintaining a wide variety of multi-channel content that helps to reinforce our brand, and cement our position as one of the leading retailers in the UK.

The copywriter is the guardian of the Oak Furnitureland brand. Your content will inspire, educate, inform and showcase our wide variety of quality furniture to consumers in a way that’s accurate and engaging so an understanding of consumers and creating compelling, factual, authentic content that truly resonates, will be key.

You’ll sit in the PR and Communications team, but will work closely with almost all areas of the business (Social media, eCommerce, design, product, and retail to name but a few) so you’ll need to be able to work collaboratively – we’re all one team, united in going above and beyond to showcase the very best of the Oak Furnitureland brand.
