Associate Creative Director, Copy

About Us:

There are plenty of other agencies around that you can work for, with or at. Each one a product of its own culture. Or lack thereof. What makes Partners & Simons different, and we believe special, goes back to Tom Simon’s original vision: A profitable community of smart marketing professionals built on the pillars of humanity, creativity, efficiency and results.

Notice how humanity comes first. We strongly believe that’s what makes the next three possible. It’s our secret sauce. We’re a group of self-motivated marketing problem solvers who also put high value on quality of life. We’ve come to Partners & Simons to work in a high-performance environment that’s more consistent with our individual values. We enjoy onsite massages and yoga, eat lunch together on Fridays, and plan Creative Nights Out in and around the Seaport. If you’re looking to work in a fun, creative environment that inspires innovative thinking, read on.

About the Role:

Do you get enthused about medical devices and Nobel Prize announcements? Can you keep up with client conversations involving CRISPR or RNAi? Can you also step out of those shoes and come up with great ideas for companies outside of Life Science? We’re looking for an ACD with a portfolio that shows a history of original, effective ideas, writing skills and attention to detail.

You are collaborative, ready to work with Creative Directors, art directors, copywriters, account management, production and tech teams to develop and execute innovative, interactive, and engaging work. Digital experience is required, but you’ll work on assignments in all media from social to broadcast. We’re looking for smarts, strong presentation and client skills, an entrepreneurial streak and a fair bit of charisma.

You’ll be expected to take on a meaningful role in the management of creative staff – under the oversight of the Creative Directors. And hopefully, someday become one.

  • Inspire creativity
  • Develop work that is on strategy and on brand
  • Create work that is mindful of the client’s measurement objectives
  • Deliver assignments on time and budget
  • Work on new business initiatives as needed
  • Demonstrate behaviors expected of company leaders

Skills and Qualifications:


  • 5+ years of relevant experience
  • Work that drives business, and wins awards and clients
  • Thinks conceptually and strategically
  • Excellent writing skills with an emphasis on versatility
  • Comfortable with complex and highly-regulated categories
  • Great attention to detail
  • Strong presentation and client skills
  • Articulate and concise in written and oral communications

  • Able to juggle multiple projects and priorities
  • Has the big picture view – understands the client, industry and market
