Content Executive

Welcome to addmustard

addmustard is a full-service digital agency joining up brand, technology and marketing for our clients. We work with entrepreneurial businesses to drive awareness and growth, efficiently.  For the most part, we don’t just work with our clients on one-off projects, campaigns or channels, but we bury ourselves into their businesses and work alongside them to solve fundamental commercial and digital challenges.  

Our amazingly talented team is made up of those people who do more, think more, and act more (and quite often, celebrate more…) and we are fascinated by the kind of people who get a kick out of delivering something great. 

Essentially, we want to attract great people and keep them, attract great clients and keep them, and have a lot of fun along the way.  

Simple, right? That’s where you come in. 


About the team 

The addmustard team is built from individuals who love a challenge, aren’t afraid to get their hands (and feet) dirty, and are genuine people wanting to learn, succeed and be part of something amazing. We nurture our talent, invest in their future, and support and care for every single person both professionally, and more importantly, personally - which is what creates a successful working environment for both our team and our clients. 

We are an open, supportive group who want to achieve great things together. We’re there for each other, whether it’s been a challenging day in the office or we’re celebrating one of life’s wonderful milestones together. A bold claim, but our Glassdoor reviews back it up. We’re a small team, with strong bonds.


Who we’re looking for 

A tight-knit collaboration of minds and people is an essential part of our success. We want people who don’t just sit in their lane but think of the bigger picture and help others to meet their overall goal.  

We love people who get right to the nub of a problem and ask the questions that others are avoiding, as well as offering the solutions that have yet to be thought of. We’ve built (and are very proud of) our completely flat and integrated organisational structure – we don’t care where the good ideas come from, as long as they can be turned into something amazing and tangible. No idea is a bad idea.

So, if any of the following sound like you, it’s probably time we organised a drink and a chat. 

  • You genuinely care about delivering results.

  • You’re hands on and not afraid to get stuck in.

  • You’re a passionate problem solver and dynamic.

  • You’re looking for a working environment where the whole team loves coming to work, supports each other and feels relaxed.

  • The idea of socialising with colleagues doesn’t fill you with dread.


The role

We’re on the lookout for a creative yet organised mind to join our busy Organic department as Content Executive. This is a great first step into a digital marketing career and we need an individual who is eager to make their mark, contribute ideas and offer new ways of thinking. You’ll also need to be a keen listener, quick to pick up processes, get excited about detail and be naturally organised. If reading a grammatical error on an advert doesn’t grind your gears, this role probably isn’t for you.

Our ideal candidate is inherently creative with a wicked way with words. In this role, you’ll be reporting into our Content Strategist and working alongside an extensive team of freelance writers, ensuring they are suitably briefed and producing astute, on-brand copy. You’ll be responsible for writing and proofing content for a wide range of purposes and platforms, covering everything from website copy, email campaigns, social media posts, blogs, and internal documents. You’ll also get the opportunity to work with our technical and SEO teams, inputting into keyword research, content opportunities, optimisation, auditing, and loading content into our clients’ CMS. This role offers exposure to some fantastic and varied brands, across industries spanning travel, real estate, financial services and more, and giving you lots of opportunity to develop and nurture your growing content marketing skills. And, as part of a close-knit, multi-disciplinary team, you will provide valuable input on campaigns that span all marketing channels.


Key responsibilities

  • Ideating, researching, writing, proofreading, and publishing content for a range of channels including email, social media, and SEO.

  • Support our curated team of freelance writers (our ‘Scribblers’) by briefing and assigning content production, managing deadlines, and answering queries.

  • Contribute to, and help develop, attention-grabbing campaigns in line with our clients’ brand spirit and guidelines. 

  • Work with our clients’ content management systems (CMS), uploading and editing website content, and optimising existing content for organic visibility.

  • Working with our design team on page improvements and supporting the teams in terms of copy and when required rich content (imagery/videos).

  • Auditing client and competitor websites to provide recommendations and opportunities for content performance improvements.

  • Proofreading external and internal documents, new business pitches, proposals, and reports.


Skills and experience

  • Outstanding attention to detail with proficiency in writing, proofreading, grammar and spelling.

  • Previous experience writing for a brand or personal blog.

  • An understanding of marketing and the digital landscape.

  • Excellent time management with a talent for juggling multiple deadlines and tasks.

  • A passion to produce beautiful things, whether that’s through writing, photography, video or something else…

  • A positive, can-do attitude.

  • Ability to generate unique ideas and articulate them to the team and our clients.

  • Naturally organised with a logical, calm approach to projects and challenges.

  • Experience using Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress is advantageous, but not essential.



In return for your experience, creativity and incredible mind, we’ll make sure you work with and are trained by experts at the forefront of digital marketing. Our senior management is open, honest and transparent which means we regularly share financial, team, and client performance with the whole agency. You can choose the hours you work and where you work from, as long as it fits with our team and clients’ requirements, and you’ll enjoy a £1,000 annual training budget, free gym membership, ride-to-work scheme and many, many social events.  

We also offer unlimited holiday. Yes, it really is unlimited. And no, that wasn’t a typo.

Our full benefits include:

  • Unlimited holiday.

  • Flexi time: flexible working hours and work from home, unless you are required for an important meeting at addmustard’s central Brighton office.

  • Inclusion into our 10% annual bonus scheme (after one year with the company).

  • £500 personal training budget, allocated every 6 months.

  • Pension scheme, gym membership and ride to work scheme.

  • Be part of an amazing, sociable and supportive team with far too frequent nights out/socials/Friday pizza and beers and of course our annual Christmas parties abroad!
