Junior Copywriter at FutureLearn

Since launching two years ago, FutureLearn has run hundreds of courses on a diverse range of topics, which have attracted over two million learners from around the world.As the number of courses we offer increases dramatically – and we strive to grow our learner base at an ever-faster rate – we are looking for a Junior Copywriter to join our London-based marketing team.

The core of this role will be working with our partners to create course landing pages, translating academic subject matter into clear, compelling, search-optimised copy.

You will also have the opportunity to develop email marketing campaigns; write and edit for the FutureLearn blog; and work with our Senior Copywriter (that’s me), to develop our tone of voice and approach to content marketing.

You will:

  • have at least two years’ demonstrable copywriting experience, primarily in a digital environment
  • be familiar with SEO techniques, and happy using CMS and email marketing tools
  • have an interest in the world of education and a curiosity to learn everyday.

In this role, you will be:

  • working in a small, multidisciplinary marketing team
  • writing and editing web copy, both short and long
  • conducting keyword research, to inform the decisions you make about content
  • liaising with partners, to seek feedback and agree on copy
  • using in-house and third-party tools to create landing pages and email marketing campaigns
  • analysing the success of your work with tools such as Google Analytics
  • and playing a critical role in attracting our next two million learners.

Previous experience in any of these areas would be a bonus, but there’s plenty of scope to learn these skills as you work.


FutureLearn is based in the British Library in central London, and we offer a competitive salary and great range of benefits.

You can apply or find out more on the FutureLearn website. Or if you have any questions, feel free to email me.
