39 Skills to list on your copywriter CV

Before you begin writing, make sure you know how to write a CV in a way that best emphasises your strengths.

Copywriters create compelling advertising and marketing materials, including articles, digital content, and brochures. By successfully communicating with clients and understanding the product or service they’re promoting, copywriters use the written word to engage with customers.

Degrees in English, Journalism, and Marketing are useful for copywriting but not required because employers focus mostly on your previous work experience writing clear and concise copy.

As copywriting is a creative field, copywriters must have diverse soft skills (personality traits related to how you interact with others and approach work). But competitive copywriters will also have relevant technical skills (hard skills learned through training) related to marketing, such as WordPress skills.

  • Google Search Console
