We have an exciting, 100% remote, job opportunity for a conceptually creative, mid-weight Copywriter to join the team at a Cape Town based NPO doing vital work in the online social space. In the role of copywriter you will be called upon to write and edit copy for a range of projects (editorial, web, mobile, video, and social media).
