Project Description:
Note that you are expected to bid for a batch of 100 news articles. It is absolutely essential that you send us examples of prior work otherwise your bid will not be considered.

We are seeking writers to join our expanding team of freelancers,
contributing content to our UK-based technology website.

Given the nature of the technology landscape, we need news writers who can
contribute content primarily between 8am and 8pm (UK time). On occasion, we
will require assistance outside these times (e.g. to cover live events or
special assignments) and there may also be scope for more regular
out-of-hours shifts in the future.

Writing for a UK-based audience, you will have a deep knowledge and passion
for technology and be able to cover everything from the latest iPad launch
to the wrangles surrounding HP’s acquisition of Autonomy. Working remotely,
you’ll be sourcing, researching and writing technology news for publication
on our site.

Training, guidance and feedback will be provided by the in-house team of
editors. Although writing quality is paramount, the ability to sniff out a
good story, or see a different angle on a well-covered subject are equally
important.

Successful applicants will:

-be expected to produce articles of at least 200 words
-abide by the fact that they will only be paid for published articles and
will accept to review their articles if copy editors send them back.
-have excellent command of written English &
-be able to write catchy, SEO friendly headlines.
-be able to research and suggest news titles.
-have experience of online content management systems (training will be
given).
-have basic knowledge of image editing and HTML.
-have practical knowledge of social media, with SEO/online marketing
desirable.
-be confident with the concept of tags and tagging.
-be flexible when it comes to working hours.
-be available via Skype for the whole working day.

Interested candidates should send:

-links to any published work & details of specialist interests and
expertise.
-availability time-wise.
-the number of articles they're willing to publish on a daily basis.

Skills required:
Academic Writing, Articles, Copywriting, Report Writing, Technical Writing
