Position Details

Chicago Illinois
Chicago, IL

Golin Chicago (our headquarter office) is looking for a Copywriter and an Art Director. Open to teams and individual candidates. The CD role has a simple job description: Come up with award-winning ideas that break the internet. Fun ideas. Provocative ideas. Totally off-the-wall ideas. Ideas that make every Creative Director at every other agency in the world want to recruit you away from us.

But you’re not going to want to leave because you’ll be working on an iconic QSR company that is synonymous with culture and the ability to be an influencer in and of themselves, so the possibilities are endless — all while building your book with diverse, channel-agnostic work for some of the coolest, biggest brands on the planet.

Not only that, you’ll know for a fact that your ideas are going to earn national attention from Buzzfeed, Hypebeast and the top trending feed on TikTok because you’ll have the power of the entire Golin PR media team pitching to make your ideas famous.

As a creative, you won’t just be making ads, you’ll be making culture. Don’t get us wrong, making ads is great, but moving culture and making headlines is even better. In fact, our approach has helped us win both Cannes Lions and back-to-back-to-back PRWeek Global Agency of the Year.

What You'll Do:

Make it up. Then make it happen.

Job #1 is to bring the freshest, most inspired, most unexpected thinking that solves a client’s problem. Job #2 is to use every creative skill you have to bring your ideas to life. And Job #3 is to work with your cross-functional agency team at a quick pace, delivering a creative-led, client service day-in and day-out.

  • Collaborate with your creative director, strategist, media, digital, and account teams to ensure your work is always relevant, strategically sound, and headline-worthy. 
  • Communicate your ideas to the clients with clarity, strategic insight, and passion. 
  • Hunt for and share out with the rest of the team what’s breaking in culture BEFORE it breaks in culture. 
  • Proactive thinking. You’re always bringing ideas because you know not every opportunity lives within the brief.

What We're Looking For:

  • 2-5+ years’ experience in advertising, social, or digital media. Knowledge of earned media is a plus. 
  • You understand every social media platform and speak the language of the internet. 
  • Art Director: You’re a wizard in Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator and have an understanding of visual storytelling. 
  • Writer: You’re a wizard at using words to communicate emotion and inciting people to hit that share button. Y
  • ou’re a genuinely nice person who brings energy every single day to your work and to the agency.
