Senior Copywriter

As Senior Copywriter, you will be responsible for bringing corporate strategy to life through engaging core narratives, creative copywriting and captivating communication platforms.


Five years into the Paris Agreement, it’s clear to most that we’re past talking about doing good; it’s time for real action. Companies of all shapes and sizes are facing a new paradigm. What they say and how they say it will have a tremendous impact on their ability to either engage or repel their audience of stakeholders.

At Kontrapunkt, we work with ambitious brands to have a real impact in the world. This position is a chance to get involved with crafting brand narratives and work with sustainability communication to support this ambition.

The position

As the new Senior Copywriter, you will be part of the creative team at Kontrapunkt developing strategic communications platforms and crafting brand narratives for national and international clients. With excellent presentation and organizational skills, you will be the driving force in creating and implementing purpose descriptions, brand messaging strategies and high-quality content and copywriting that engages customers and builds brand recognition.

Your key responsibilities include:

  • Advise on clients’ business and brand strategy and convert it into engaging and motivating communications platforms
  • Work with clients on creating their core narrative and tone of voice and unfold brand experiences across touchpoints (everything from purpose statements to micro-copy in digital products and services)
  • Work strategically with internal and external communication as part of transformation projects, ensuring that messages are consistent and engaging
  • Be part of rebranding/renaming projects for national and international companies
  • Create and oversee the creation of captivating copy for clients
  • Work closely with strategists, designers and client managers

Your profile

To succeed in the position, you possess a great conceptual and strategic sense of how to translate a brand strategy to an engaging brand narrative and full-blown brand experience.

Ideally, you hold a degree within rhetorics, communication or another relevant field and have a minimum of 5-7 years of experience within strategic communication and/or creative copywriting. Experience with sustainability/ESG and purpose-driven communication is a plus. Agency experience and client-side experience are preferable.

With excellent communications skills in both Danish and English, verbally as well as written, you easily present your thoughts and ideas precisely and convincingly no matter the audience, country or project, and you find it natural to consult and advise corporate executives in communication strategy and execution. Moreover, you hold outstanding organisational skills and are used to plan and manage the design, content, and production of all communications and branding materials. You have your own network, you are able to generate new projects and you like to win pitches.

You are empathetic and have a natural flair for understanding your clients’ business, industry, and stakeholder landscape. You excel at balancing the abstract and concrete and at adapting wit, cultural references, and strategic communication. As a person and colleague, you are outgoing and welcoming; you value empathy, integrity, and a culture defined by courage, curiosity and craftsmanship.


15th of August. We will review applications and do interviews on the go, so apply sooner rather than later.
