​Word Monster are the go-to writing agency that supports other healthcare agencies, research organisations and charities. We’re an enormous fan of freedom in the workplace, so there are only three things to remember:

  • Write With Bite (so we do great work and continue to build our reputation)
  • Work for your core hours every day, and no more [unless you’re super keen for paid overtime], being as billable as you can be (so we get paid)
  • Keep our clients happy (so we continue to get paid)
  • ​Write With Bite means to make your words simple, interesting, unexpected, concrete, credible, emotional and to tell a story – so that your words resonate and stick in the mind. Write With Bite is what’s known as our Commander’s Intent. It is the core of every order. It specifies both the plan and the desired end-state of any and all projects.
