About The Role

We’re looking for a skilled writer with an eye for detail and flair to join our growing marketing team throughout their studies. You’ll be responsible for planning, crafting and delivering great copy and content that grabs readers’ attention. Working alongside our marketing team, you will learn how marketing strategy is implemented from start to finish, being a vital part of its application through engaging content creation.

Your main responsibilities will be to create blogs and white papers for Roller Agency, as well as brainstorming and implementing creative ideas for social media, producing copy for proposals and researching key trends and insights that are relevant to us and our clients.

Our approach is flexible and we enjoy helping students discover where their skills lie. Whilst with us, you will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of our creative and development (both web and app) processes, as well as obtaining skills within CMS, such as WordPress and Craft, social media scheduling tools, web analytics and SEO.  Because we deliver services to a range of clients in a variety of industries, students have the unique opportunity to gain a broad range of skills and knowledge in a relatively short period of time.

This position is unpaid, however we are extremely flexible around university schedules. We normally suggest 3-5 hrs a week to ensure you get the most out of your internship with us.

To get you started, you will have an introduction to the company and what your role will be within the the team. Although it would be great for you to be immersed in the office environment that we work in, we know that it might be difficult for you to find time in your schedule to come into the office for a certain amount of hours in one go. This is why we will then give you the option to either work from the Roller office or from home. All we ask from you is to produce the work on time and to a high standard.
