This job takes heart. Because sometimes we only have one chance: the chance to have a genuine conversation with a 17-year-old leaving home for the first time, a 36-year-old-mother of three going back to school, or a 70-year-old alumnus who is looking to give back. We need someone who can translate the personality of our experiences through their words. Someone who can write in an illustrative way that treats people as, well, people. Someone who can help readers imagine (or relive) the experience themselves.
In support of Ohio University's new brand platform and recent realignment of University Communications and Marketing (UCM), our copywriter will serve as a lead storyteller and idea generator for branded marketing and recruiting materials, advertising campaigns, video (scripts), and email communications. This position is a key component of UCM's ability to connect with audiences, elevate the department's work product, and bring OHIO's story to life.
The copywriter loves the craft of writing for higher ed and will balance the intersection of strategy and creativity. They'll brainstorm concepts, write/edit copy, and develop content that lives across both traditional and digital channels. Working directly with a creative team comprised of designers, photographers/videographers, channel owners, and subject matter experts across campus, the copywriter will engage audiences through compelling and inclusive copy that moves readers to consider Ohio University and take action.
Bachelor's degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience.
At least three (3) years of related work experience.
