Copy Intern, Imagine – Immediate Media Co – London
Company: Immediate Media Co
Immediate Media Co
Overall Job Purpose
At Immediate we love creative people who are passionate about what they do. We’re looking for an enthusiastic Copy Intern at the beginning of their writing career to sit within our Imagine creative studio, primarily writing copy for content partnerships between our own brands and advertisers.
During your time with us, you’ll gain insight into every aspect of Imagine’s work, from pitch through to delivery. You’ll learn about the different production processes, the dynamic between commercial and editorial, and work in close collaboration with designers, videographers, developers and project managers, as well as salespeople and editorial departments.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for magazine brands (both print and digital), and preferably a qualification in journalism, written media or similar at either graduate or post-graduate level, though this is not essential. You’ll also display an enthusiasm to learn quickly, whether it be adapting your writing style to the preferences of editorial house styles and client briefs, working with the copy team to manage workflow or developing your own creative ideas. You’ll have read a selection of our publications and continue to do so as part of your role as you build up your expertise. Above all you’ll be eager to learn, full of passion and fizzing with ideas.
Ideally, you’ll already have some awareness of the dynamic between advertisers and publishers, and how content partnerships can lead to compelling, useful, emotive content that conveys the advertisers’ message while upholding editorial values.
As part of this position you will also be involved in pitch work for commercial partnerships, and we pride ourselves on every team member having a creative voice, regardless of position. As such, you’ll have an opportunity to sit in brainstorms and eventually formulate your own ideas and help with the sample work that often accompanies our partnership proposals for prospective clients.
As a team that enjoys a friendly, lively dynamic, and is committed to developing talent, we want someone to come in and really make the most of this fantastic opportunity and turn themselves into an invaluable asset to the business – possibly beyond the two-month duration of this internship.

This is an amazing chance to join a talented, passionate and friendly team, helping to produce brilliant ideas and industry-leading work. You’ll be responsible for writing compelling copy of a variety of formats and lengths for a broad client base across the entire Immediate portfolio.
