As Australia’s most trusted bank, we provide our customers with the products and services they need for a better banking experience. Our vision is to be Australia’s bank of choice as we believe our success is driven by our purpose – to feed into the prosperity of our customers and communities, not off it.

About the role

We currently have a permanent opportunity for a Copywriter to join the team full time.

You’ll be based in the office for 2-3 days per week noting that hybrid ways of working are core to how we operate today.

As the Copywriter, you’ll get to:

  • Develop and ensure that projects worked on are well written, meet the brief, and are on message
  • Draw on specialist skills in online copywriting, including knowledge of current best practice trends and SEO
  • Develop copy for a variety of applications including new creative concepts for online, social, radio, TVC, print, outdoor, signage, and sponsorships
  • Write to size and turn large text into punchy advertisements using various communication styles, methods, and mediums to enhance audience understanding and interest
  • Draw on best practice and current market trends to create effective creative content
  • Interpret and apply brand and tone of voice guidelines in all deliverables
  • Present your creative concepts to internal stakeholders as part of the Centres of Excellence creative team
  • Work with external parties e.g. creative agencies, to maintain brand guidelines and ensure quality work
