Freelance Editor (Independent Contractor)
Do you have a talent for spotting mistakes?
Are you a language wizard and write perfect English? (knowledge of extra languages is not required, though can be regarded as a big plus)
Do you want to earn money while working from home?
If so, then you may well be the candidate we are looking for.
Helion Market Research is looking for a Freelance Editor who has a passion for grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, overall consistency and meeting deadlines. When analytical skills and a healthy dose of critical thinking define you then you should apply straight away.
As Freelance Editor, you will be responsible for checking the accuracy of mystery research reports and brand audits which Helion Market Research carries out on behalf of our multinational clients, while you work from home.
If you have a desire to be involved in global market and customer research that focuses its efforts on helping some of the world’s most famous brands, then Helion Market Research is the perfect work environment for you AND you will receive a competitive fee per evaluation edited.
The offer at hand here concerns a project which will continue to run until December 2014. The actual workload might vary from time to time (thus allowing you to combine this assignment with others), though a very close follow-up will be required in general (so on a day-to-day basis).
Since the project will be running in African countries, freelance co-workers from that area are preferred.
In a nutshell, it is the task of the freelance editor to check the aforementioned evaluations on:
• Spelling, grammar and language use of the comments provided by the Mystery Shopper
• Inconsistencies/contradictions in comment or between pre-defined answers and comment provided
• Every evaluation comes with a set of instructions as part of the contract between Helion Research and our client. The freelance editor also checks whether the evaluation is compliant with the instructions
• Ensure professional lay-out of the Mystery Shopper comments provided in the reports
• The relevance of the information provided in the reports
• Additional project specific instructions (such as pictures, receipts, location details, recordings…)
