  • Crafting new educational content on long-form blog posts to educate and inform UK parents
  • Writing all email communication to our thousands of happy mums (and little ones) globally
  • Creating content for SEO and optimising existing content for improved SEO ranking and links
  • Working with our Head of Marketing to implement our social strategy, including brand tone-of-voice, content ideas and scheduling and iterating our approach based on engagement insights
  • Working with our Product and Support teams to ensure our website copy is regularly updated
  • Monitoring the communication strategies of competitors and disruptive ‘role model’ brands, staying abreast of market trends, engagement strategies and disruptive communication styles
  • Crafting best-in-class customer service template response sheets across our most common FAQs
  • Communicating internally with the wider team, for brainstorming, buy-in and collaboration

What you’ll need: 

  • 3-5 years’ experience in a content writing / social media role
  • Strong familiarity with social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, TikTok)
  • Experience in developing engaged communities online across social, email or blogs
  • Exceptional creative writing skills in short-form (social posts) and long-form (blogs) 
  • Comfortable with optimising content for SEO and knowing what works well for earning links
  • Great communication skills, able to express complex topics in an accessible way
  • A strong sense of responsibility, curiosity and a proactive attitude
  • Comfort working in a high-pressure, fast-paced environment 
  • Native English speaker, preferably UK based (remote is fine)

What you’ll get from us:

The opportunity to work for the fastest growing baby milk brand in Europe, as part of a young, talented and driven team committed to delivering better nutrition to families around the world.

We offer 28 days holiday (inc. bank holidays), a pension scheme, remote working, subsidised gym membership, a cycle-to-work scheme and childcare vouchers. Oh and did we mention our factory is located in the heart of the beautiful English Lake District?
