Where were you before joining Copy House?
Before I joined the team at Copy House I worked from the comfort of my bunny slippers as a freelance copywriter. Now, I get to continue developing my copywriting skills with the added bonus of being surrounded by a great team and awesome new client projects.
And just to be clear, I’m totally serious about the bunny slippers.
What’s your favourite thing about copywriting?
I enjoy having the opportunity to write about different subject matter that comes with each new client. With such varied work it’s impossible not to feel like I’m always learning something new.
But, my absolute favourite thing has to be the thrill of seeing something I’ve written published. Nothing beats it.
Why do you want to be a copywriter?
Writing for a living has always been an appealing notion to me. When I first came across copywriting, I liked that it was writing with a job to do. The deeper I dive into copywriting, the better at it I want to become.
What initially attracted you to the position at Copy House?
It’s no secret that Copy House has a diverse pool of clients, meaning there’s a different challenge with every new project.
The nature of the job involves delivering content that works hard for the clients’ businesses. I was attracted to the position at Copy House because I wanted to play a part in that process.
What are you most excited for in your new role?
I’m looking forward to being an active member of the professional team at Copy House. As a freelancer I enjoyed that my job could be done remotely, but I often missed the social side of having work colleagues.
At Copy House, I’m able to work remotely and in an office environment - so I get to experience the best of both worlds.
What will your new role involve?
Copy House prides itself on producing cleverly crafted content. As a copywriter, it’s my job to research, plan, and craft that content.
Where do you see your career going in the next 5 years?
I don’t have any rigid career goals or expectations. As long as I can look back and see progress, I’ll be delighted.
What’s the best advice someone ever gave you?
“If you don’t accept responsibility for your mistakes then you’ll never learn from them”.
It’s something that has really stuck with me, and it can be applied to every aspect of life. Over time, that mantra has taught me that taking responsibility is the fastest route to growth.
How do you spend your time when you’re not working?
I enjoy taking my Polaroid camera out and shooting some instant photos. The neat thing about Polaroid pictures is that any mistakes can be passed off as artistic expression. It’s just a shame the film is a little on the pricey side!
