Position

Freelance Copywriter (full time hours)

At Thread, our mission is to make it easier for people to dress well, and our content plays a huge part in that. Through our blog articles, social media content, and onsite copy, we share expert-level style advice with our customers, so that they have the insights they need to dress with confidence. With our content writer role, you’ll have an exciting opportunity to be a part of that process and to help establish a distinctive tone of voice that differentiates us from other retailers.

  • We feature non-models in all of our editorial shoots to make our content feel reflective of the world we live in
  • We always look for opportunities to personalise our content, and as part of that, we tailor many of our articles and emails to our users’ unique preferences.
