Work from home

  Technical/legal writer; 6+week contract

Wanted: a technical writer with experience writing compliance instructions (or a legal writer with instructional documentation experience). You need to be comfortable with, and able to, interpret legal requirements, extract the embedded obligations and flesh them out into easy-to-read procedures. Itís the policy-to-procedures scenario, where the policies could cover laws, regulations and industry standards. This is not an especially technical job. The primary skill being sought is a talent for writing simple, plain, utilitarian English.

For this role you can work from home, but it is a full-time role. You must be able to dedicate 37+ hours a week to it and be available for teleconferences.

Send your CV to cv@abelard.com.au. Make sure you include a contact telephone number and email address in your CV.

Sydney jobs

  Senior technical writer; permanent role; north-west suburbs

We are looking to place a senior technical writer with a well-respected medical appliance manufacturer in Sydney's north west. At least seven years experience in the technical writing field would be a good start. Strong expertise using AuthorIT would be considered highly, but training will be provided to the right candidate if they are new to AuthorIT.

It would be good too if you had a talent for communicating complex information in visual form (especially using such tools as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign).

Your primary deliverable is a set of user guides, supplemented by online help (all of which is generated using AuthorIT).

While expertise in the above-mentioned tools would be an advantage, what is more important is solid technical writing experience propelled by a commitment to quality and best-practice, with an appreciation of future trends in providing end-user documentation.

The company offers superb working conditions, with secure on-site parking, a gym and swimming pool.

Send your CV to cv@abelard.com.au. Make sure you include a contact telephone number and email address in your CV.

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 are welcome to send us your CV even if you are not applying for any of the jobs listed on this page. By doing so, your details will be added to our resources database. 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.

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.
