Please note: Completion of a nominal fee test is required for consideration of this position, which will be added to your first project payment when you join our team. The test may not be in your area of expertise, but please proceed, as you will be required to have the ability to learn new skills as part of this role.
What am I looking for?
I run a successful professional writing service and am looking for skilled writers and researchers to join my team. Topics vary, but are primarily medical, health, pharmaceutical, and business.
What type of projects are available?
Projects range from 900 word articles to larger reports and whitepapers of 30,000 words.
What professional skills do I need?
In addition to having exemplary writing skills, you will need to possess the following:
Referencing – the work is highly evidence-based and will require the ability to source primary references that are up to date and reliable.
Research – you will need to dig deep into various topics to determine how to cover new ground in your work. We don’t recycle or reinvent the wheel, but offer our readers something new.
Interviewing – the ability to identify experts who can contribute to articles or reports, devise the relevant questions, and get to the core of the topic.
Detail-oriented – with the ability to adhere to project descriptions and ensure your work is accurate.
Flexibility – your audience will be different across projects, both in terms of the readership and geography; you will need to be able to adapt to this.
Originality – any plagiarism will result in immediate dismissal.
What personal skills do I need?
You will be required to work both independently and as part of a team, so will need to possess the following qualities:
Strong communication and interpersonal skills – you will be working very closely with myself (Dr Davies) and will need to be amenable to constructive critique and amendments to your work.
Reliability – projects need to be completed on time to ensure we provide a high quality of service to our customers.
A learning mindset – the desire to learn and grow.
Creativity – we value thinking outside the box and coming up with new ideas.
What is the pay?
Payment starts at $26 (£20) per 1000 words, but there is the potential to work your way up to higher pay. Bonuses are also provided for work that is of a particularly high standard and requires little input from myself; these bonuses can range from $9 (£7) to $130 (£100), depending on the size of the project.
The budget placed on this project is for the test, but all subsequent work will be by word count.
*PLEASE NOTE, AS THIS IS GHOSTWRITING, A NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT WILL NEED TO BE SIGNED UPON JOINING THE TEAM, WHICH PASSES ALL COPYRIGHT OF COMPLETED WORK TO DR. DAVIES.*
