Words that bring your brand to life 

That tell your story. In your voice.

And in the way you want it told.

Phil Welch

Award-winning copywriter and creative thinker with 30+ years' experience 

Employer brands? Tick. Commercial websites? Tick. Award-winning recruitment campaigns? Been there and got the T-shirt. 

After 25 years of working in recruitment communications agencies, I set up Welch Words in 2012. Since then, I've continued to work with agencies and direct clients, on UK and global campaigns in a variety of sectors. Producing

everything from brand development and experiential and social media marketing to entire websites and good, old-fashioned press adverts and brochures. In fact, you name it and I've probably written for it. 

In short, I'll not only help your organisation find its voice. I'll make sure it's heard by all the right people. In all the right places. Because Welch Words work for you. 

How I can help you


Employer branding

When it comes to your employer brand, the tone of voice you use is vital. If the messaging reflects the wrong employer values, character or personality, the people you attract will be wrong, too. I've helped countless employers to identify what they should be saying and how they should be saying it. I've even got the awards to prove it.


Recruitment marketing

Translating a dry job description into engaging copy that grabs the right person's attention? Focused campaigns that target people with specialist skills? Or a mind-blowing strategy that wows the best graduates from around the world? Whatever you're looking for, I'll sift through the research, identify the insights and develop creative ideas that work for both you and the people you need to attract.  


Website content

Your website's your shop window to the world. So it needs to be welcoming, informative and a true reflection of your organisation. And it needs to be succinct. From full corporate sites to standalone careers sites, I create content that's precise, engaging and bang on brand. 

Social media

From promoting your services or products, to attracting the very best people to work for your business, you need a strong social media presence. I've created engaging social media campaigns and detailed content calendars for clients in a variety of business sectors. I've even won the odd award for it, too.
