Copywriter
 

MGH (based in Hunt Valley, MD), a full-service marketing communications agency recognized as one of Ad Age’s 2019 and 2020 Best Places to Work, is searching for an additional creative copywriter to join our team. But we’re pretty efficient around here, so we also need that person to be hilarious, brilliant and most importantly, humble. This individual should be ready to collaborate with some seriously accomplished individuals, on a growing list of regional and national clients.

The ideal candidate will work closely with other creatives and project team members to generate and execute concepts. This includes everything from fully integrated marketing campaigns to video and other digital projects, TV and radio commercials, point-of-sale merchandising, websites, social media content and whatever the next new trend might be. You should be well-versed in advertising and marketing, not simply content writing.

What You’ll Do:

  • Thinking big, by creating smart, disruptive branding ideas capable of driving multiple mediums
  • Crafting smart, poetic and effective copy that supports our clients’ brands and business goals
  • Clearly articulating the thinking behind your ideas, both internally and at client presentations
  • Collaborating well with team members across marketing, design, and development disciplines
  • Understanding how to respond to co-worker and client feedback to make the work better
  • Following and sharing industry trends to stay up-to-speed on emerging technologies and how to incorporate into them into your creative idea

What We Want from You:

  • Bachelor's degree in English, journalism, communications, or writing-related field 
  • At least 3 years of advertising agency or related experience
  • A portfolio that is filled with strong ideas, smart headlines and tight, persuasive copy
  • Proven ability to work effectively under multiple — and occasionally competing — deadlines

Perks of the Job:

  • Hybrid work schedules
  • 3 p.m. Fridays year-round 
  • 401k plan with company match
  • Generous Paid Time Off (PTO) allowance
  • 11 paid holidays, in addition to emergency-only client service the week between Christmas and New Year’s
  • CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield Medical Plans, including two plans offering $0 employee premium
  • BlueCross BlueShield Dental and Vision plans
  • Health savings accounts (HSA), including a plan offering company contributions
  • Flexible spending accounts (FSA) for health care and dependent care
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • Company-provided life insurance, short-term (including maternity) and long-term disability
  • Paid Parental and Bereavement Leave
  • Membership to a Wholesale Club of your choice (paid for by MGH)
  • Credit Union Membership
  • Employee Referral and New Business Referral Bonuses

Life at MGH:

  • Two-time (2019 and 2020) Ad Age “Best Places to Work” award winner
  • An agency that was founded on belief that the best place to work produces the best work
  • An “intrapreneurial” culture that rewards big thinking with career development opportunities
  • Drinks and snacks provided for your pleasure
  • Culture committee that plans events, including Happy Hours, Holiday Parties, Team Trivia Events and more

Please be sure to submit applicable work samples when applying.
