Marketing Content Copywriter & Coordinator

We're seeking a scintillating storyteller who thinks like a retail journalist. 


About the job

We're hiring a Marketing Copywriter & Coordinator with 2-3 years experience for a permanent position in our Haarlem office. A strategic thinker with real chops for creating content, you will be writing articles for our blog and putting together snappy copy across all of our marketing channels. You will also be heavily involved in PR - finding that angle on a story, writing a press release, and pitching it to the journalists that operate within the retail landscape.

You'll be working in a lean, small team that doesn't believe in the idea of bureaucracy. It's all about creating great work and taking real ownership of it.

Print. Web. Social. Email. It's all there, and waiting for someone to come in and hit some home runs from day one.  

In the video below, you can see a customer case study from Visual Retailing. Oh and also, we have a whole website for you to take a look around. 

See how ETRO uses Visual Retailing software to align planning, buying and visual merchandising to minimise the gaps between information and decisions.
