Current Jobs

  Writer–editor; Melbourne; permanent part-time

A client is looking for a talented and experienced writer–editor to join a team of communications professionals.

You must:

Ideally you will have IPEd accreditation or have the knowledge and experience that would gain you accreditation. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete a brief writing and editing test.

The work is quite varied. One day you might be copyediting a report for a government agency; the next reviewing a tender to deliver a major IT project. In between you might be required to interview someone about their area of expertise and then write a snappy 500-word LinkedIn post about them.

 This is a permanent part-time role (approximately 23 hours a week). The location is Melbourne CBD but the role can be a hybrid:  at least two days a week at the office and the remainder working from home. Work days and salary are negotiable.

If you are interested, send your CV to cv@abelard.com.au.

Click here to open your email application, and attach your CV to the email you send us. Tell us whether you are looking for a contract or a permanent position, and when you will be available. Make sure you include a contact telephone number and email address.

Be careful ...

Your CV should be an advertisement for you, showcasing your skills and talent as a writer and document designer. So treat it with the same respect as you would treat a document you were writing for a client. A poorly written CV will give the reader cause to suspect that you do not have the writing skills and attention to detail necessary to succeed in the technical writing profession.
