Jobs Western Cape

Writer (Cape Town)

Remuneration: Negotiable depending on experience 
Location: Cape Town, Woodstock, CBD
Education level: Degree
Job level: Mid
Type: Permanent
Company: Strika Entertainment

Company description
Strika Entertainment conceptualises, produces and commercialises engaging character-based entertainment products and communications solutions, primarily in the medium of comics and animation. Our clients are diverse, ranging from the mining and fishing industry to NPOs.

Job description
We are seeking a dynamic and energetic mid-level writer to manage the scripting process from concept to completion for corporate communication and entertainment products. The writer works alongside a team of client service consultants, illustrators, designers, art directors and post- production.

The writer attends briefing sessions and occasional meetings with client to better understand the objectives of the content being produced. During brainstorm and review meetings the writer will offer creative input and record all creative direction from the team before briefing the script or edits into studio.

Scripts are reviewed and refined before production, but the writer will follow the project’s creative development throughout and continue to give input on the work being produced. The writer will be expected to provide feedback and updates to ensure that all project objectives are being adhered to.

The scope of the work varies and the writer needs to be versatile and able to work on a range of products and subject matter, including mining-related content and copywriting for social media platforms.

The position is time and creativity intensive, so only dedicated, hard-working individuals should apply.

Requirements
A writing qualification is preferable but not essential and experience in creative writing or agency experience will be beneficial.

Although the position does also involve advertising-style copywriting, skills as a story writer (including story structure and character) are most utilised. Being able to condense and translate detailed factual content into an entertaining narrative through use of character, setting and engaging dialogue are the core strengths of the writer.

The writer will need to work with a variety of personalities and highly skilled personnel in all areas – from business development, through illustrators and art directors, to colourists, finishing artists and letterers. In addition the writer should be comfortable working alone when required as the scripting process will be almost entirely their responsibility.

The following attributes are essential:

  • A tertiary qualification in a related field.
  • Comfortable with a range of writing types (from story and script to copywriting)
  • A good understanding of narrative structure, character and dialogue
  • High level of visual literacy is essential
  • Able to research independently and extract core information from detailed texts
  • Good interpersonal and workshopping skills
  • Able to work well with others as well as independently
  • Meticulous attention to detail and thoroughness, including strong grammar and spelling
  • In touch with popular culture
  • Excellent general knowledge

If you are interested please mail us your CV and portfolio with a cover letter summarising your suitability for the position and what your availability is.

Should you not have heard from us within two weeks of your submission, please consider your application unsuccessful.
