If you have amazing grammar and composition skills and attention to detail, this could be the position for you. We are looking for individuals with a perfect command of the English language, who love pouring over content, word by word and sentence by sentence, to find structural, grammatical, and mechanical errors, as well as to evaluate the general flow, fluency, and coherency. You will be in a position to either recommend changes or actually correct and/or re-write portions of content that do not meet the standards of good English.
General Job Description:
You will be responsible for editing and proofreading content that clients submit to us for review, along with content that has been created by our own team members, before it is delivered to a client. We want our content editors to be always mindful of the brand voice being portrayed and to ensure that that voice is consistent throughout any piece of content and any re-writing that is done.
Specific duties are as follows:
Proofread for perfect grammar, spelling, and punctuation
Check factual information included in the content – stats, dates, etc.
Review content for style, tone, readability, and ease of read for a client’s recipients
Re-write text to enhance quality and readability
Make recommendations for revisions to both clients and fellow team members.
You are a great fit if:
You are a grammar Nazi (well, maybe not a Nazi, but at least a member of the “grammar police”)
You can independently manage time and meet deadlines
You can be diplomatic when you correct mistakes and make recommendations to others
You have full command of Microsoft Word
You love detail work
