I work as a freelance communications professional and am looking for people to join my team. I would give you several pieces on a predictable schedule (weekly / monthly newsletters) as well as other larger projects (annual reports, webpage content edits).
My business is growing. At present, the average weekly hours I require would range from two to five, with some weeks as many as 10. I would like to try you out with a couple of pieces before proceeding with a more permanent situation (paid of course), if that all sounds good to you. I have suggested a rate of $8 per hour and will increase it to $10+ if the project is received quickly and in good standing.
I work in Canada and edit to the Canadian Press Stylebook, which is similar to AP style. Deadlines are tight. For example, I will give you a piece that takes 1-2 hours on Wednesday at 7 p.m. EST and need it the next morning.
A bit about me: I have nearly 20 years experience working for non-profits and charities as a communications professional. I recently started a business and have been very busy freelancing. I would like to expand, but need to find some dependable people to help out.
I am looking to hire people permanently and want to pay fair wages to keep those who turnaround quickly with professional standards.
If that sounds like a plan, I would love to try to do some work together.
