Our eCommerce team is looking for solid editors/project managers for an ongoing project for Buying Guides. Candidates with UK English knowledge is a must!
Buying guides are highly in-depth, large-scale articles that cover all the possible variants in the purchase decision-making process. These are purely factual articles that have a well-formulated hierarchical structure and are approximately 1,500 – 2,500 words in length., depending on the type, as outlined by the style guide.
This is a full time project 30-40 hours per week. However, we are willing to take on part-time editors/project managers as well. We do require a minimum commitment of 10 hours per week.
Initially, I would hire you for the trial interview. The Interview trial is paid at $30 after oDesk fees. This is for successfully completing the trial.
Interview will consist of:
- Reading over the Style Guidelines
- Editing a completed Buying Guides
- Ensuring any US English is converted to UK English
- Editing all content to reflect the style guide preferred spelling and grammer
- Converting any US metrics to UK metrics
- Tracking (commenting) changes and why it was changed
