H&L Partners is looking for an experienced Associate Creative Director–Copywriter, storyteller, and likable leader to partner with our current Creative Director in mentoring our Creative team and directing the coast-to-coast creative work for a broadcast-and-digital-focused global consumer brand (as well as others).

We’re looking for someone with a strong point of view, an itch for creativity they just can’t seem to scratch, and diverse experience as a Copywriter, working in digital, print, and broadcast production on the agency/creative side. Our team is rapidly growing, and so is our drive to consistently raise our creative standards for our regional, national, and global brands. Bring an open mind that’s equal parts thinker and maker.

Your race, color, ancestry, religion, gender, gender identity, national origin, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, and veteran status don’t matter. What does matter is chemistry and the ability and drive to form partnerships with makers across every facet of creative work. You will love working collaboratively in our HQ in Oakland’s Jack London Square, but being local isn’t even a requirement for the right fit.


  • An envy-inducing portfolio/reel representing five to seven years of experience in script, headline, short- and long-copy writing for campaign advertising across all media
  • A collaborative spirit made for concept sessions and jump-ball brainstorming of original ideas
  • In-studio/on-set production experience
  • An inclusive, productive attitude that fosters teamwork and encourages fresh ideas
  • Presentation skills and a client-facing personality that rallies people around your concepts
  • Great communication skills in written and spoken English (multilingual a plus)
  • Conviction in defining the rules, courage in knowing when to break them


  • Possesses credentials from a known portfolio school or equivalent agency experience.
  • Has automotive, quick-service restaurant, insurance, or healthcare experience.
  • Holds secret recipes for dry rubs, craft cocktails, side dishes, and other delicious treats for when we get back to enjoying BBQs together on our deck.
