James Proclaims (4)

A exciting opportunity has arisen for a creative, results focused and ambitious Content Writer who can take direction from written or spoken ideas and convert them seamlessly into quality content that is better than the stuff we’re currently churning out.

James Proclaims Ltd

James Proclaims is a multiple award-nominated blog based in the UK somewhere. The blog is quite possibly read and enjoyed by tens of people around the world, although this is based on some potentially misleading statistics. Nonetheless those stats point to a recent upward curve and so the time has come to consolidate that success by ‘employing’ someone who can actually, you know, write.

Content Writer

You will join us as a Content Creator and will draft all content for blog posts, ensuring it is of the highest standard, engaging, and will definitely get a lot of ‘likes’. You will be a valuable team resource in terms of industry knowledge, keeping abreast of trends and passing that knowledge on to the wider team. The wider team is, essentially, just one person, although that person does sometimes use the first-person plural to create the illusion that there is, in fact, a team.

Content Writer Responsibilities:

– Responsible for drafting all content and effectively marketing the content so as to generate lots of ‘likes’.
– Respond to comments on posts in a timely and, where possible, witty fashion.
– Research competitors to stay informed of what is popular on other blogs and, where appropriate, steal ideas and content.
– Make coffee for ‘the team’.
– Sometimes go to the pub with ‘the team’ and pretend to be his friend.

Content Writer Requirements:

Essential Desirable 
– Willing to work for no remuneration or credit – Proven experience of writing for web, email and social media
– Ability to write good, clear copy in a variety of styles and tones of voice with impeccable spelling and grammar
– Excellent proof-reading skills
– High level of accuracy and attention to detail


Expressions of interest should initially be in the form of a message in a bottle. This is not a real job advert but all applications will nonetheless be considered before they are rejected.

  1. An opportunity no doubt some lucky soul will grab with both hands.
    Sounds too competitive a market for me to even think about straying into that type of territory.
    Good luck with sorting thru the no doubt hundreds of hopeful applicants.
    Who said some people weren’t flourishing during Covid 19?

    1. I’m all for encouraging reckless career sabotaging acts, so yes, I believe it is time to say goodbye to your current role. Be sure to burn as many bridges as you can on your way out the door.


  2. In order that I set it off well and my application lands at the correct place, would you be so kind as to tell me which ocean’s shores gently wash upon the delightful conurbation of Reading?

    1. If it’s meant to be, it will find its way here. But the Thames estuary might give it a chance, if it can somehow defy the natural flow of the river.


  3. I have some questions (as all well-prepared, prospective applicants should have): Is there scope for international travel? And how would your organisation deal with emotional outbursts? Would you encourage, support or squash them?

    1. There is plenty of scope for self-funded international travel. Indeed we would actively encourage applicants to do this. Emotional outbursts are fine so long as they can be exploited for more award-nominated content.

      1. I actually read an advert for a PA to a YouTuber yesterday. They were not so willing to allow any emotions to be shown, unless it was from the YouTuber. And based on the list of responsibilities, I think these would be frequent. Excessive toddler tantrums springs to mind!

    1. I’m afraid we can’t have you writing for a competitor’s blog so I’m afraid you appear to have ruled yourself out. But we will keep your details on file in case we need to steal your ideas in future.
