Editor in chief at Team5pm (South Africa)

At our new office in Cape Town, we are hiring an editor in chief to manage our international copywriting team. We are looking for someone who can write well and has experience with writing SEO optimised video scripts. Next to that, you want to take the next step (or have already taken it) and want to use your knowledge to train and direct other scriptwriters. In addition, you have an enterprising character and you have the qualities to build and manage a team of (international) freelance scripters.

 A large part of the content we create is answering queries from national and international customers. We advise our clients based on data which questions are most searched for and which are most relevant to their brand. From that research we decide the help topics of which eventually we will produce videos about. This also includes the length of the video and the sub-questions that must be answered in the video so that they also rank high in Google and YouTube when people search for this. Based on this information, the video scripts have to be written by our copywriters.

You will be the one in charge of the project management: you will make sure that your team will reach their deadlines, that the scripts are of the best quality, and that feedback from clients will be processed by the writers in your team. You will also build a network of copywriters worldwide to make sure that your team can cover any topic. You will be working with our creatives and the production team. And of course you will also be writing these awesome scripts yourself to stay experienced

What are we looking for?
As an editor in chief you are responsible for the project management of the copywriting team. 

  • You have a passion for online content and demonstrable experience with writing scripts. 
  • You have a high quality standard and know what scores online. 
  • You have completed a relevant study. 
  • You have experience with writing scripts for videos and with copywriting based on SEO keywords. 
  • You are enterprising and like to take initiative.
  • You can work closely together in a motivated team. 
  • You are energetic and creative. 
  • You speak and write fluent English and Dutch

What do you get in return?

A job at a no-nonsense YouTube agency. We don't like fuss, we like initiative and responsibility. We also like to experiment a lot and learn fast. We don't like to stand still, but we do like to reflect on our successes.

We believe that the success of Team5pm is directly dependent on your development. There is plenty of room for feedback and personal growth. Development with us is not without obligation: we expect you to be eager to make progress.



We want to make sure you get what you need to perform at your best! And in doing so, we look beyond just a nice salary or a macbook. We also want you to have enough free time to relax and recharge. We therefore give everyone a lot of responsibility. Check out our Team Guide to see how we look at work!
