Job Title: Content Writer/Copywriter

JobID: capitalone2-R28982

Location: Richmond, VA, 23261, USA

Description: West Creek 2 (12072), United States of America, Richmond, Virginia



At Capital One, we’re building a leading information-based technology company. Still founder-led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard Fairbank, Capital One is on a mission to help our customers succeed by bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking. We measure our efforts by the success our customers enjoy and the advocacy they exhibit. We are succeeding because they are succeeding.



Guided by our shared values, we thrive in an environment where collaboration and openness are valued. We believe that innovation is powered by perspective and that teamwork and respect for each other lead to superior results. We elevate each other and obsess about doing the right thing. Our associates serve with humility and a deep respect for their responsibility in helping our customers achieve their goals and realize their dreams. Together, we are on a quest to change banking for good.



Content Writer/Copywriter



Our Brand Creative team is hiring a writer/copywriter to support our Enterprise content marketing efforts. You’ll pitch, research and write strong creative pieces that help influence the perception of our brand. While a Journalism background is desired, the ideal candidate should also be a strategic thinker, a creative problem solver and know marketing. This is a new role and you’ll have the opportunity to help build our content efforts from the ground up. We’re looking for the right mix of content writing, marketing know-how and creativity.



You should be:



+ Excited about content!

+ A journalist at heart—that means experience pitching story ideas, researching, writing and editing. Come with your own sources or have the ability to find sources for your stories.

+ A big thinker. We’re idea people—you should be too

+ A team player

+ Comfortable playing in more of a copywriter space—working from a brief to concept and execute strategically sound, creative ideas



Additional skills that aren’t negotiable:



+ You have a positive attitude and work well not only in a classic art director/copywriter partnership, but you partner well with a wide variety of people

+ You understand the benefits of process and you use it to your advantage.

+ You are just as comfortable with a clever headline as you are with a longer article.

+ A clear understanding of tone and the ability to quickly adapt your writing style.

+ An understanding of the importance of creative strategy, how to use it to create powerful work, and the ability to clearly present it to others for buy-in

+ The ability to handle multiple projects at once and meet aggressive deadlines.



Copywriting portfolio submitted with resume. Diversity of work is key. We are interested in seeing produced content, editorial clips as well as some marketing/advertising work.



**Basic Qualifications:**



+ Bachelor’s degree or military experience

+ At least 3 years of writing experience



**Preferred Qualifications:**



+ At least 2 years of experience working in a marketing or advertising setting

+ At least 2 years of content experience



At this time, Capital One will not sponsor a new applicant for employment authorization for this position.
