Global Lead Copywriter


Job Description

Just Eat is a leading global marketplace, providing millions of customers with an easy and secure way to order and pay for their favourite food from tens of thousands of Restaurant Partners.

We are committed to bringing emerging talent into our business, as well as retaining and developing our existing colleagues, with the potential to be tomorrow's leaders of Just Eat.


There's more to marketing than running an advertising campaign and hoping it performs well.

That's why we like to say we're as good a listener as we are a talker. By that we mean we communicate with our customers and restaurant partners in the same way. We stick to our brand values, and ensure each remain as excited about building the world's greatest food community and discovering new flavours as we are.

Joining our Marketing department, one minute you could be working on a TV campaign and the next a Halloween discount offer push. It's fast-paced, fun, creative and varied.

The opportunity

Internal application deadline 18/12/2020

Are you an English-language copywriter with a hunger for spicing up marketing campaigns? Can you combine creative copy with guru-level grammar knowledge? Want to lead a talented international team? Then we're looking for you.

Our story (the bitesize version)

From perfect pizzas to seasonal soups, millions of foodies order their favourite dishes with us. Having expanded into new countries and continents as Just Eat Takeaway, we're now serving customers from Rotterdam to Rio!

That means we need mouthwatering content to attract people across the globe, whether it's delicious designs or eye-catching copy. That's where you come in.

All about the role

As our Lead Copywriter, you're the company's brand guardian for copy. Working at the heart of our in-house creative agency, your word wizardry will help us define, maintain, and refine our brand tone-of-voice.

Variety is a key ingredient of this job, with stakeholders across the business. Whether the task is creating CRM campaigns, writing SEO-focused articles or producing guides for our couriers, everything your team produces has that special Just Eat flavour.

  • Communicate with stakeholders, in relation to issues like briefing and deadlines

  • Onboard new starters in the team, as well as external writers we work with

  • Assist team members in managing and prioritising their workload
