Due to expansion in our Online Training Department, Compliance Solutions Occupational Trainers is looking for experienced, contract voice talent. The amount of work varies. Over the next 12 months, we anticipate generating between 50 and 100 "hours” of content that will require recording. Our goal is to contract one male and one female who we can keep reasonably busy. Provided they are dependable, this could become an indefinite project. Each “Course” consists of between 4 and 25 “modules”. Each Module consists of between 25 and 60 "Pages". Each page averages 50 seconds or less. Each Course will contain between 2 to 16 hours of content that you will turn into professional narrations.
The narrations our Contractors produce are used for online training courses. The audience consists of employees who have a high school up to and including college level education. The courses include scientific and technical terms (approximately 1% of all content) that may require minimal research for pronunciation.
Contract Requirements: You are expected to record each page in the project verbatim and submit finished, electronic voice files (see “Format” below) that DO NOT require editing. Files must be free of all background noise, breaths, skips, pops etc. Any file that requires editing will be returned for re-recording at the contractor’s expense. The only time we will pay for re-recording is if a change in the script is made by us after you have submitted a finished, electronic recording.
We will work with the contractor closely once each project begins to determine contractor availability and turn around time for each completed module.
Format: Written scripts are submitted to the contractor via email in Microsoft Word. All finished, recorded files must be returned in either “Wav” or “Mp3” format and AT LEAST 22,050 Hz, 16 Bit Mono or better. Contractor must have FTP (File Transfer Protocol) software, internet access and experience uploading files to an FTP server (credentials will be supplied). Contractors must have their own MAC or PC based recording software (e.g. Audacity or Sound Forge for example) to submit electronic files along with a high quality microphone.
Compensation: Compliance Solutions pays freelance voice talent a piece-rate of $3.00 per finished, recorded minute of narration submitted. recorded minute. Partial minutes are rounded to the nearest 10=second mark. A "finished" recording is described above.
If you are interested in becoming a contractor, please follow the instructions below EXACTLY for submitting a sample voice file. DO NOT submit a different recording as your sample! You recording will become part of your application. As this is an ongoing contract, we expect that if you are hired, all submitted electronic files will be of the same quality as the "Sample" you submit with your application. Major variations in quality, speed, etc. are cause for termination of a contract relationship.
Submission Instructions: Please record the attached Sample Script in a “Conversational” voice (not “rushed” but definitely NOT slow). Remember that the recordings you create are used for online courses ranging from 1-40 hours in length. Do your best to vary tone and pitch..... keep the Learner interested and engaged! You may pause at each “break” in the script (indicated by a BOLD word at the beginning of a sentence). The content contained in this script comes from several pages of an actual online course. Finally, make SURE to follow the directions above as to file type and make sure not to increase the file "quality" as your submission will be too large to accept via email.
