Send us your CV anyway

It's the same in nearly all professions: the majority of jobs just don't get advertised. They are filled by agencies selecting candidates from their resources database. (This database is populated with details supplied by previous applicants and by those who send in their CV unprompted).

You will then be matched against each job we get to fill, including those that do not get advertised on this page.And if there is a good match with your CV, we will contact you about the job.

Your CV will be treated with strictest confidentiality. It will only ever be forwarded to those of our clients who are seeking to recruit a writer, and only after we have got your approval to do so.

To send us your CV ...

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.
