In short

On is seeking a creative, confident Brand Culture Copywriter to join its growing Copywriting team.

The Brand Culture Copywriter will work closely with the Conceptual Copywriting and Internal Communications teams to drive forward On’s live events and internal communications. This isn’t a traditional copywriter role: the successful candidate will directly impact our company culture through storytelling. The ideal candidate will blend top quality cross-channel storytelling skills and live events experience with assertiveness and diplomacy to bring On’s mission to life in engaging and creative ways for internal audiences. This is a fast-paced and multi-function role: you’ll build the content for our bi-annual Global Summits and Townhalls, and work with senior leadership to craft important company messaging.

Your Mission

  • Collaborate with the Conceptual Copywriter and other key stakeholders to produce the live bi-annual Global Summit, a day-long all-company event that showcases the work, partners and athletes of On. Including concepting, content creation, script writing and organizing relevant shoots
  • Work with stakeholders to produce company Townhall live events
  • Work cross-functionally to write and edit key company documents, including speeches and scripts
  • Write internal culture communications copy across platforms, ensuring tone of voice and messaging is consistent
  • Work closely with the Conceptual Copywriter, Communications team and the On Partners to execute company messaging throughout the year
  • Write employer branding comms when extra support is needed
