Flexible communications support for you and your team

We’re hiring

We’re always looking for good, reliable people to join our team. Even if we don’t have any openings at the moment, if you think you’d be a good fit feel free to get in touch and if we agree, we’ll keep your details on file. Most of our roles are self-employed but we take care of the marketing to bring in the work and we guarantee prompt payment of your invoices. As your own boss, our flexible and remote business model means you choose when and how much you want to work.

We offer a supportive working environment and can make use of a pretty broad range of skills – the main requirement is that you are a good fit for the company. We all work remotely, so whatever work you’re doing, it’s important that you are self-motivated, reliable and used to managing your own time effectively. The work is interesting and varied and you will receive help and support from colleagues when working on projects together. You must be responsive, proactive and flexible in your approach to work and life.

Our team works with clients in the UK so although your specific location is not important, you will need to be able to contact clients and interviewees in the UK by phone and email during normal business hours.

We often need people who can write, edit or design and people with technical skills, but this is not an exhaustive list. Have a scout around the rest of our website and get a feel for what we do and if you think you have something to offer, please get in touch and tell us how you can help and why you’d be a good fit for our team.

Writers

We build long-term working relationships with a small team of experienced freelance writers. The majority of our clients are in the NHS/health sector and so working experience in this area is a significant advantage. Native speaker standard British English is essential.

Please note that you will need to be able to make and receive phone calls and emails during normal UK business hours. You will preferably also be available to carry out some work during normal UK business hours as we sometimes receive requests for small tasks to be completed and returned on the same day; this role is not a good fit for anyone wanting a few extra hours that they can do in the evenings and at weekends.

£20-£25ph depending on experience. Freelance.

If you’re interested, please email admin@effectiveenglishcompany.com explaining why you’d be a good fit for our team and attaching (or linking to) a CV and three examples of different types of your published work.

Proofreaders

We build long-term working relationships with a small team of experienced freelancers. It goes without saying that we are looking for people with an outstanding eye for detail. You should be the person that other communications professionals come to for final proofreading, as they know that nothing will escape you.

The majority of our clients are in the NHS/health sector and so working experience in this area is a significant advantage. Excellent Microsoft Word skills are also a bonus – you should be proficient in working with preset styles and in persuading every image, box and letter on a page to sit exactly where you want it and not where Word thinks it should go!

Ideally, you will be available to carry out some work during normal UK business hours as we quite often receive requests for small tasks to be completed and returned on the same day.

£25ph. Freelance.

If you’re interested, please email admin@effectiveenglishcompany.com explaining why you’d be a good fit for our team and attaching (or linking to) a CV. Please note that as part of the selection process we will ask you to complete a short proofreading test. This should take about half an hour and will be unpaid.
