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 English-speaking copy editors to join our expanding team of

freelancers, editing and pushing content to our UK-based technology website.

Given the nature of the technology landscape, we need copy editors who can

edit content primarily between 8am and 8pm (UK time) and exceptionally

outside those hours from time to time (e.g. to cover live events or special

assignments).

Editing for a UK-based audience, you will have a deep knowledge and passion

for technology, (possibly with past experience from Demand Media, Yahoo

Voices, Suite 101 etc) 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 paid a fixed fee per article to read, make any

quick fixes and push articles either from our news writers or third-parties

live on our website. Training, guidance and feedback will be provided by

the in-house team of editors.

Successful applicants will:

-have excellent command of written English.

-have an eye for details.

-be ruthless when it comes to quality control.

-be expected to flag poor performing writers

-have basic knowledge of image editing and HTML.

-be expected to send poor copies with a short note to writers for review.

-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.
