Experienced Copywriter Needed in Beirut, Lebanon
Are you an English-speaking experienced copywriter who lives in Lebanon? Are you looking to work for an outstanding brand & marketing agency? If you’ve answered “yes” to both of these questions, read on to find out more about this copywriter job opportunity in Lebanon.
JAYPAY is a super-creative brand & marketing agency which has clients dotted all over the world. Our clients range from exciting new startups to internationally recognised giants. We’re located at BDD and we’re a hip and fun and (add any other adjective you can think of here) agency that’s looking to add a God of Words (a.k.a. a Copywriter) to our growing Communications Team.
Our Communications Team is a big deal at JAYPAY and we churn out anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 words a week. That’s a Game of Thrones book each and every month! We’re expanding this word count, which is why we’re now on the hunt for a talented Experienced Copywriter who is looking for a new and exciting challenge.
As our Experienced Copywriter, you’re going to be reporting directly to the CEO (who is a writer, too) and you’ll be responsible for creating and transforming ideas into engaging content. The content you’ll produce will be used in a variety of mediums such as emails, web pages, landing pages, blog posts, text and banner ads, print articles, outdoor advertisements, brochures, and leaflets.
Being a JAYPAY Copywriter is a really important gig, especially as you’re going to have an input into how we get our message across to our clients. You’ll be working with clients who belong to an array of different industries, which includes Forex, as well as other smart verticals.
Working at JAYPAY is fun, challenging and rewarding, BUT we’re only going to be interviewing candidates who demonstrate that English is their first language, and have a talent for writing. Remember, just because you can speak English doesn’t mean you can turn ideas into words which jump off a page. Creative writing is an art form and we’re looking for uber-creative thinkers who can write.
JAYPAY: Our ethos
We could fill this section with fluff words which big us up. Thing is, when it comes to the JAYPAY brand, it’s not about us; it’s about our incredibly talented team, which could include you. Our team is what makes us. So, enough talk about why we think we’re great, let’s focus on what our team has to say:
Do you know what it really means to be a copywriter?
I’m going to ask you this question during our interview, and as an Experienced Copywriter I’ll know if you’ve prepared an answer or if you’re winging it. I started off as a Copywriter and to be honest, I’m still one at heart. If you’re lucky, you’re born to write and that never leaves you.
Founder & CEO
Your role as an Experienced Copywriter

Plus, you’ll learn a lot and that’s a promise as we’re going to be fast-tracking you to become the Head of the Communications Team. This is what you should want, so expect to be pushed beyond what you’re normally used to.

Writing super-attractive copy with a distinct voice that’s conversational, professional, informal, etc.
Spinning articles so that your vision is seen through the content.
Collaborating with the JAYPAY Visuals Team as you’re going to be creating the copy for webpages & landing pages, but also putting forward your vision on how you want these pages to look.

What we’re looking for
We’re looking for a hungry, driven Copywriter who’s based in Lebanon and preferably in Beirut as you’re going to be expected to work from our offices in BDD. As our Experienced Copywriter, you’re going to have to be someone who is comfortable with working within a team and at an extremely fast-paced company. We’re looking for a real team player who has a true knack for turning words into sentences which literally jump off the page.
When it comes to adding new talent JAYPAY, we don’t just look at your academic background. You can have PhDs coming out of your arse, but if you don’t fit in, can’t smile, are incapable of having fun, can’t relax, or get off whatever high horse you’re on, maybe
