At GoodPeople, we believe in the power of community. We are a tech for good start up and social enterprise that designs and builds digital platforms that engage communities and connects them to opportunity.

We are building ‘GoodWork’ - a jobs platform/marketplace that will connect socially responsible employers with local young people to offer them career advice and support that they otherwise might not have access to.  Central to our plans, is the development of valuable and interesting toolkits and resources that aim to help increase young people’s understanding of the world of work, help them navigate the job search and recruitment process, and develop the employability skills necessary for them to access good work.

We need an experienced Copywriter/Content Creator that can help us create these resources for young people on the GoodWork platform. The role would involve researching existing resources, and drawing on these for inspiration to create our own resources with new copy, images, layouts and ideas – incorporating a local element where possible (e.g. links to nearby training providers/support).

For the right person, this project could be the first of many in the future. We have a variety of additional projects that require copywriting and content – focussed on improving community health and wellbeing, and responding to the climate emergency.   

The Brief:
We would like to conduct an initial trial to create a resource that will help young people developing their understanding of the recruitment processes interviews with the suggested topics:
1) Types of interview
2) Types of interview questions
3) Preparing for your Interview
4) On the day
5) Nailing the interview
6) Interview Follow Up

As part of the resource, it should include:
• An attention-grabbing title
• A short summary of the resource (40-70 words)
• Between 250-400 words copy for each section

Audience/Tone of Voice:
• These resources are going to be available for everyone, however the initial focus will be students aged 16-18.  
• We don’t want these resources to sound condescending or boring - therefore we are aiming for a ‘casual but smart’ tone of voice,
• Use positive, friendly, engaging and approachable language; the text can be conversational
• We want the resources to be easy to read and to the point, ideally the topics are broken down with heading and/or bullet points

Content:
Content could include:
• Stepped/bulleted approach
• Hints and Tips
• Examples
• Linked videos (please attribute)
• 1-2+ images/diagrams per section

Citation:
Please make a note of the resources you use as you go.
