Employee Spotlight: Tim

tim

Tim’s never been to Grimsby, and he’s never been to France either.

This inexplicable headline pretty much sums up our Copywriter. When he’s not in charge of client content, he’s causing mischief in the office or struggling to be an adult.

We sat down with Tim to find out more about his position in the company, and find out what makes him tick.

Hi Tim. Can you tell us a bit about your role at DMT?

I’m the copywriter, so basically I’m in charge of daily content for all clients. I help to grow engagement on the clients’ pages, using a mixture of shared and originally created content. I’m in charge of over 40 clients from different sectors – mortgage brokers, estate agents, apps, hospitality… It’s pretty varied. I also like to recreate viral videos to go on our channels.

What attracted you to the company? 

It seemed like a fun working environment and a great company to be a part of. I didn’t really know what to expect, but as soon as I turned up for the interview I knew it was where I wanted to be. I turned up dressed to the nines, wearing a suit, and then saw the pool table and realised everyone else was dressed down!

What kind of challenges do you face in your role? 

The biggest challenge is keeping clients happy whilst keeping their customers engaged. A big part of my job is also keeping on the pulse, looking out for new opportunities and trending topics. 

What’s the best bit about your role?

I get to sit and scroll through the internet as a job! It’s nice to be able to look for content and view it through the customers’ eyes. I get to entertain myself for the entertainment of others, basically.

What’s been your favourite project to work on so far?

I love producing original content for the Digital Media Team channels. When we create content to promote ourselves, we have a lot of creative freedom, which is a lot of fun. It’s completely different to writing for clients, which restricts you to their style and brand guidelines.

If you were a social media platform, which one would you be and why?

I would be Snapchat, because I’m spontaneous, fun and I do a lot of daft things that I’d rather forget about. 

Finally, what advice would you give to anyone wanting to become a content writer?

Invest in a comfy chair!

Thanks Tim! We’re looking forward to seeing what unique content you’ll come up with next.
