Previously disadvantaged candidates will be given preference.

We have an exciting, 100% remote, job opportunity for a conceptually creative, mid-weight Copywriter to join the team at a Cape Town based NPO doing vital work in the online social space. In the role of Copywriter you will be called upon to write and edit copy for a range of projects (editorial, web, mobile, video, and social media). You will work closely with the content creation team to brainstorm impactful ideas, create engaging concepts, and develop consistent messaging from the insights provided by the research team. You will also support the organisation’s branding team to plan and create messaging for marketing material and public relations. The role calls for a true Digital Native and as such extensive digital experience from an ad or digital agency is a must. You will not be required to write long copy. If you are passionate about counteracting the detrimental effects of mis- and disinformation, fake news, and divisive and polarising rhetoric that is disseminated online to undermine social cohesion and want to use your writing skills to make a real difference, this job is a dream come true.
