TURNER, a full-service public relations, social media, content and digital communications agency specializing in travel and lifestyle brands, is seeking a Social Copywriter to join our digital team in New York City.

At TURNER, we’ve built our business around innovative brands. With a 20+-year history launching wellness, fashion, outdoor and travel campaigns, our passion translates to trusted relationships and outstanding results. Named by Outside Magazine as one of the 50 Best Places to Work in 2018, we are the niche agency that speaks to each of our core audiences with equal authenticity, because we come from inside the industries we represent. We’re relentless about strategy and smart engagement. We capitalize on our clients’ brand positioning, helping to broaden consumer awareness and cement their future.

Our national footprint consists of offices in New York, Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami.


We’re looking for someone who lives and breathes social media. The latest hashtags, the freshest memes, the newest trends – they’re all in your arsenal. As TURNER’s Social Copywriter, you’ll be responsible for ongoing social content and campaigns in the travel and lifestyle spheres. The role requires a winning combo of quick-wittedness and long-term strategic thinking, as you develop timely concepts and consistently high-quality content across an array of social media platforms. Strong writing skills are a must as well; just because it’s on Instagram doesn’t mean the rules of grammar go out the window. Finally, you’ll need the ability to communicate effectively with TURNER’s in-house creative team, our clients and relevant target audiences. Because in the end, it’s all about communicating.

Nice to Haves (if you happen to check any of these boxes, please let us know)

  • Experience in the industries we represent: travel, lifestyle, fashion, outdoor, wellness, etc.
  • Ability to concept engaging images and write video scripts (both short and long form)
