What will you do

as Copywriting Intern at Lightyear?

As a copywriter, you’ll become part of the Recruitment team which is one of the key disciplines within our fast-growing company.

Strategically, this team builds a strong and desired culture while it propels Lightyear forward in her desired growth.

While being part of this team it’s up to you, consider it your personal mission to :

Inform, engage and get our future employees excited about Lightyear. You will make sure we share unique Lightyear vacancies worth reading, by taking a deep dive into the company.

By finding the right words, your goal is to make sure we are sincere, inspiring and clear in our communication.

Imaginably, working as a copywriter at Lightyear is exciting but what can a day look like?

Let's start by saying that Lightyear is very flexible in terms of your working hours. We offer near-full remote working, with any office equipment supplied to work ergonomically (plus a work-at-home budget to upgrade your internet).

If needed, or desired, you can spend your working time at our modern office at the Automotive Campus close in Helmond or Venray (travel allowance included), or at our satellite office in Utrecht.

Here, you can enjoy a good cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate, fresh fruit and experience the buzz that is Lightyear. The best buzz is of course found at our HQ in Helmond.

So, let's assume it's Tuesday. You came to our HQ and grabbed your favorite wake-up drink before rolling into the first meeting of your day : a meeting with one of our recruiters.

You discuss an idea you have about a vacancy text and the corresponding images you would like to share.

Next, you start creating the first outline for an inspirational post on our Linkedin page for a very cool and unique position we offer.

You share it with your colleague, a Senior Copywriter, to collect her initial feedback and build on ideas together. To cool down before lunch, you scan your favorite blogs online, looking for the latest market trends.

One thing, in particular, catches your eye, and you share it in the recruitment chat to inspire your colleagues.

After a lunch that hits the spot in the campus restaurant, you decide to quickly grab a banana from the fruit box and go for a stroll in the park in front of our office.

A few colleagues tag along. On walks like these, it's never all about work. You talk about your plans for the weekend and decide to hang out and do some clubbing together. Why not, right?

After the stroll, you spend the next 90 minutes concentrating fully to finish a inspiring template you created for when we elevate our current ATS (Applicant Tracking System) to the next level.

Next, you spend some time proofreading a few vacancies that our recruiters wrote checking if it’s in line with our brand and tone-of-voice guidelines, grammar, and above all spelling.

Lastly, you and a colleague of the Recruitment Marketing team meet to review the results of a test that we ran. This A / B test revealed that captions using the first person drive much higher user engagement than using the third person.

Then, it's finally time for your well-deserved drive home. Or, maybe there’s a fun activity to get stuck into, headed by our happiness team.
