Gold Coast jobs

  Technical writer or editor; start ASAP

A client on the Gold Coast has approached us for a technical writer or editor to turn a rising mountain of technical material into a series of policy and procedure documents. The initial focus is on HSE material which, if the contractor is a good fit, will extend to other areas

The source material is already available, so no extensive research is required. You will just turn this material into well-structured, well-written, easy-to-understand policies and procedures, following a provided template (which might need some tweaking) and a style guide. Where the source material is unclear, you will need to liaise with SMEs (so knowledge management skills are also important).

The client wants the contractor to be on-site initially (perhaps for the first two weeks) after which it may be possible to do most of the work remotely.

Experience writing P&P documents for a non-specialist audience is essential. In addition, the candidate of choice will have a talent for writing simple, plain, contemporary English, with an eye for identifying potential hazards in the execution of a procedure.

For more information, contact Geoffrey Marnell on 0419 574 668.

Apply to cv@abelard.com.au.

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 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.

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 cv@abelard.com.au 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.
