Heads up art directing and copywriting all-rounders! A funky financial services start-up has a terrific hybrid working opportunity for a mid-weight integrated creative team to join their in-house creative studio in Johannesburg. This isn’t your traditional, corporate start-up – they love the quirky side of life, and the balanced lives of their staff is important to them. They do expect their employees to take initiative and ownership and are keen to find individuals who have/are open to learning multidisciplinary skills. We’re talking about writers with an eye for design and art directors who can edit – in fact we’re looking for people who don’t want to stay in their lanes, people with a variety of skills (or the desire to have a variety of skills). The successful candidates will be sharp-minded, bright creatives with sophisticated senses of humor; people who see things from an unexpected perspective.

This is a super opportunity for an art director and copywriter comfortable working across disciplines to create conceptual, integrated solutions to work like video content for social, outdoor, radio and more. You’re well-suited to this job if you’re a fully integrated team (or individual) with agency experience and can bring your highly creative, conceptual thinking to the studio. This is a great opportunity to move in-house, be immersed in a brand and do truly awesome creative work.

If you’re not part of an awesome art director and copywriter team, please apply anyway as they will put a team together.

  • To develop skills and knowledge within yourself through on-the-job development, and active participation
