Delivery Team: Content Coordinator (Colchester)

We are currently recruiting for this role. If you are interested, please send an email to and include your CV as an attachment.

If you’re someone who fancies themselves as a bit of a writer, can put yourself in the shoes of a client or customer and has a basic knowledge of SEO – this could be the role for you. We love all of our clients at Footprint which is why we need to make sure they only get the best strategies and content out there.

You’ll work with the wider team, including our relationship managers, SEO and PPC people to coordinate writing content, assigning content to your outsource team and partaking in client strategies. While this isn’t an out-and-out writing role, there’s plenty of time to hone your skills, and learn everything about digital marketing.

Your main responsibility will be managing the flow of content, so you’ll need to be comfortable proofing content not just for its technical accuracy, but also for its suitability for the client and medium. A knowledge of SEO in content writing is desirable too. It’s not all management work, you’ll also get to actively write for and participate in the creation of client strategies and content. And, as time goes on you’ll be instrumental in helping the department develop current and new products for our clients.

This is largely an office based role reporting to our head of content and conversion. The role is very sociable and involves a high amount of day to day interaction with agencies, clients and our team. Footprint is growing fast, and if you’re looking for somewhere to help you in your marketing career, this is a great opportunity. We love sponges, so if you’re ready to learn and grow, we’d love to hear from you.

Where will I work?

Under current COVID-19 guidance our Colchester based team are working part time in the office and part time at home.
