Content Writer Job Ad Template

Spot the difference

Writing job ads is hard work, especially now we’re living within such a fast paced and exponential society. What’s the difference between a Content Writer and a Copywriter, anyway? Don’t Content Managers and Content Specialists do essentially the same tasks?

In short; Writers build trust, Copywriters drive sales and Strategists steer the content ship.

  • Content Writers are focused on explaining, educating or entertaining. It could be informative writing for a landing page, or fun writing for a blog or an article. They enjoy engaging the reader.
  • A Copywriter’s aim is to persuade a consumer to make an action. It’s all about encouraging language for them, usually to gain traffic or help make a sale.
  • Digital Marketing Managers love internet ecosystems. They’re concerned with social media, websites and apps.
  • Content Marketing Managers are responsible for planning and implementing a company’s overall content strategy. They look after the data of their content and report on what’s working well and what needs improvement.
  • Content Strategists and Specialists are very similar and have almost the same responsibilities. They both understand the long and short term aims of a company and come up with ways to help them reach those goals. They ensure all content is clear and compelling. If you really need a difference between the two roles, a Specialist is a little more creative and general, and a Strategist is more analytical.

Need inspiration?

Your job description will not attract talent all on its own. So when putting together your job post, be sure to show what it's like working at your company not just textually but visually!

  • Remember, attracting a candidate is just as much about your company culture as the job role itself. Make sure to include points that make you seem desirable too!
  • Add photos that show off your office space, team events and your team having a great time.
  • Maybe you could include a video of some team members explaining why they love coming to work, or why they like their role.
  • Include a grid of attractive perks with some nice illustrations. Maybe you have unlimited holidays, or you have an attractive parental leave cover - show off!
  • Why not embed your company's Instagram feed to give a IRL overview of the day-to-day.
