What is the Role?

The Smart Copywriter role is a role within SSE Business Energy, based on a 12 months contract. This role is based within the Business Energy Smart Programme ('BESP) supporting the Deployment Operations workstream in governing Business Energys smart meter deployment planning and delivery.

The BESP is pivotal to the successful delivery of BEs Smart Metering rollout and the way in which it does this has a significant impact on SSEs overall Smart Metering business case.

The individual chosen will play a pivotal role in driving smart metering demand for Microbusiness (MBC) and Small to medium Enterprise (SME) customers portfolio, by providing support in executing the smart campaign strategy. This role will be concepting, writing and refining content assets where smart meters should be referenced when engaging business customers, in order to generate leads and conversions.

What do I need?

To be considered for this role you will have extensive experience as a Copywriter as the role requires a hands-on approach combined with very strong time management. You will also have experienced of working with, developing and maintaining strong business relationships, both within Business Energy and with external partners.

This is a demanding role where someone with demonstrable knowledge is needed to hit the ground running to execute campaigns and come up with new ideas to get smart messages to the relevant audience.

We are looking for someone who is able to balance competing demands. The individual chosen will have the ability to question a brief, to work calmly under pressure and meet challenging deadlines.
