Blog/Copy Writer

The Job:

There are many companies these days that need Blog and Copy Writers for creating copy for websites and blogs, company newsletters, marketing materials, business proposals as well as print and web articles. Your specialty may be for serious technical writing about finance or medicine for example, or perhaps you love to write about fashion, beauty or celebrity gossip? There are usually plenty of jobs on offer.  Best of all, some companies won’t expect you to have a degree in Journalism, just the ability to write interesting and engaging copy and to work with tight deadlines.

The Perks:

  • Most media departments or companies are dynamic, fun and exciting places to work. You will be sure to have a blast working around plenty of creative and fun people, just like you.
  •  Once you have proven yourself by producing outstanding and engaging copy, some companies will be happy for you to continue writing as a freelancer while you travel around Australia. Just submit your articles or material via email from wherever you are.

Previous work experience required:

While a degree in Journalism or previous experience as a writer or copywriter is extremely beneficial, it is not always necessary.

Some companies are happy to employ new writers without experience, as long as you can demonstrate your ability to produce captivating and professional copy.
The $$$:

As a junior with little or no previous writing experience, you can expect to be paid between $18-$25 per hour. However if you have previous experience or a Journalism degree, you may be paid anything from $30 to $60 (or more) per hour.

The word on the street:

“Before I came travelling I had been working as a freelance writer for a website in the UK, so I already had some experience behind me. But the company I worked with in Australia gave me a lot of training and I worked with them for six months. I had a blast and my creative team were crazy, every day in the office was fun.” Hannah, UK.
