Job description
We are a plain language writing company that provide communication support to a range of financial services and healthcare clients.

The role would require you to be able to:
  • Determine the needs of audience/users of technical documentation
  • Study product samples and talk with product designers and developers as needed
  • Work with technical staff to make information and products easier to use and thus require fewer instructions
  • Write and organise supporting content for products
  • Edit, standardise, or make changes to material prepared by other writers or establishment personnel
  • Use drawings, diagrams, animation, and charts that increase users understanding of the material
  • Select appropriate medium for message or audience, such as manuals or online videos or diagrams
