About teehee

We are a modest but well established independent creative agency, focusing on the beauty and fashion sectors. We have a strong roster of international clients such as the L’Oreal Group, the Henkel Group and Philips. As a team we work very closely with our clients, and pride ourselves on our sense of ownership and creative freedom for each and every project. Our own internal production facilities make working on integrated campaigns, alongside diverse, dedicated and highly skilled colleagues, a natural process. We consider ourselves a Chinese agency, with an international attitude and outlook. As well as projects for China, we work across the APAC region and globally, so we foster a broad mindset. As well as our office in Shanghai, we have recently opened up a new office in London. We also have plans to open up a small office in Milan later this year. It is an exciting time to join teehee.

Description of the role

We are looking for a copywriter to join our team in Shanghai. As a highly creative and strategic person you will work on everything from big concept develop for integrated campaigns, to social and corporate communication. You will take complex, insight driven themes and ideas, and distill them into engaging, exciting and provoking copy - with a voice and tone that really speaks to the audience.

For clients & campaigns

  • You will play a key role in the creative team helping to develop campaign concepts & big ideas.

  • You will be able to translate those big ideas into a broad range of output from scripts to social content.

  • You will work on proposals and pitches, ensuring that they are driven by strong narrative ideas which answer the client’s brief.

  • As a natural story-teller you will help present the team’s ideas to clients and other stakeholders.

For teehee

  • You will help shape the voice and tone of teehee though our website, and social content as well as presentation materials.


  • Highly skilled. It goes without saying that you are a great copywriter and story-teller, fluent and comfortable speaking and writing in a wide range of styles and tones. You can take complex ideas and information, and translate them into accessible and exciting concepts - creating relatable narrative worlds for our campaigns to live in.  

  • Focused. As a perfectionist you will also sweat the detail - making sure that our stories and ideas communicate and deliver through every output.

  • Verbally confident. You are as at home discussing and presenting your ideas within the team as you are in front of the client.

  • Digitally aware. You are a digital native and know your way around all of the leading social, e-commerce and content platforms.

  • Informed. Curious and aware, your eyes are open to the world around you. You enjoy staying up-to-date with the latest styles, trends and events.

  • International. An international outlook means that you are at home working with global brands and teams.

  • Language. In addition to Chinese you are comfortable working and communicating in English.
