Melbourne jobs

  Business analyst/Technical writer; 2+ month contract; Start mid-February; South-eastern suburbs

We have an opening for a analyst–writer to help a food manufacturing company prepare business process maps (BPMs) and then convert those maps into procedures. Much of the operating knowledge in the company is tacit, so you will need to interview operators and document what they do (and what they might do in the event of non-routine circumstances). Thus good (and tactful) interviewing and listening skills are essential. You also need good business acumen (especially the knowledge or imagination to see all the likely conditions and scenarios that might affect a process).

Prior use of BPM tools (and knowledge of standard BPM notation and techniques) is important.

The operators interact with various SAP modules (logistics, AP, AR etc.), so SAP experience would also be considered favourably.

Geelong jobs

  Technical writer; 3–2–3 month contract; Start Late March

We have a project coming up in late March at CSIRO’s Australian Animal Health Laboratory in Geelong. The work will be for 2–3 months and it cannot be done remotely (as there will need to be be a lot of SME interaction).

You will be working with the team that maintains all the plant and equipment at the laboratoty (such as boilers, chillers, air handlers, autoclaves and the sewerage treatment plant). Thus experience in a processing plant (e.g. a refinery or chemical factory) would be an advantage. A lot of the documentation you will write or update will comprise Safe Work Instructions—describing how to perform maintenance activities safely—so a working knowledge of plant safety protocols would be beneficial.

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

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

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.
