Onward Search is looking for a copywriter for a premier financial services client in Chicago to work onsite within one of their creative team. You’ll need to be as comfortable playing in the copyeditor space as you are in the digital writer space. You’ll write and edit copy in brand voice and style, and review content with the customer experience in mind.

You must understand the benefits of process and how to use it to deliver the best results. We’ll expect you to collaborate within your core team of project manager and designer, as well as with a variety of partners.

Along with your resume, share a few paragraphs to tell us how your experience makes you a good fit for this copywriter position—this is your chance to show us your skills in practice.

• Review and proof emails created by in-house teams and third-party designers for alignment with email best practices, corporate editorial standards and brand voice
• Provide direction to designers using Acrobat, Word and email
• Work with multiple lines of business and creative teams as an email subject matter expert to develop new email marketing assets or update existing creative work
• Work with brand and business teams for multi-stage internal reviews and approvals
• Work within tight schedules and deadlines
• Work with regulatory and accessibility compliance guidelines

Required Qualifications:
• Minimum 2-4 years of experience, preferably digital and/or some agency experience
• Insanely keen eye for detail, grammar, punctuation and errors
• Proven ability to check, re-check and check again to ensure all prior revisions are in place
• Strong organizational skills a must—an amazing ability to manage multiple projects and teams simultaneously
• Proficiency in MS Office and Adobe Acrobat Pro



  • The client is unable to support 1099 / Corp-to-Corp or Independent Contractor arrangements at this time. All freelancers will be paid as W2 employees.
