Do you want a career working for one of The Sunday Times’ top ten Best Big Companies in the UK? 

We have an exciting opportunity within our established in-house creative production studio, working with Bourne Leisure’s UK holiday brands: Haven, Butlin’s and Warner Leisure Hotels.

Role and responsibilities

Reporting to our Project/QC Team Manager, you will be responsible for quality checking all marketing collateral and internal communications produced by our team. This could range from a simple email or animated promo video, right through to a training manual or large printed brochure. 

We have an established QC process which encompasses spelling, grammar, punctuation and general consistency. Furthermore, each of the Bourne Leisure brands have unique copy guidelines (such as use of hyphens and word capitalisation) which need to be adhered to. You will also be required to check artwork against client amends.

•Confident using Microsoft Office applications, preferably on a Mac.
•A fantastic eye for detail and consistency, even under pressure.

•Experience working with brand or copy guidelines.
•An aptitude for copywriting.
•Knowledge of online workflow and collaboration systems, such as Trello.
•Experience of checking digital assets, including email links.
•An interest in design and a creative eye.

Our main priority is to ensure that the Bourne Leisure brands receive a professional, responsive and efficient service with a focus on quality and accuracy. If you love the English language and enjoy working with copy, we’d love to hear from you. At interview stage there will be a proofreading and markup task within Adobe Acrobat.
