AD Hoc Proofreader

0 people like this description

We are currently looking for a backup proof reader for a short term ad hoc scenario for one of the leading Hotel corporate headquarters. For the proofreading resource, we need the person to sit at the Stamford office. There is no set timeframe as to how long the assignment will run. We are looking for add’l resources that can back up their current proofreader. Typically, when we need the person to come in, it’s for a 9-5 day. We think we may need add’l proofreading help during the last 2 weeks of Jan and into Feb. Additionally, this resource would be able to cover for the current contractor while she is out on furlough (April through May). So in total, if a fit you're looking at 2 - 4 weeks to start and then an additional 2 months of work.

Our process will be to review resumes first, then perform a phone interview with potential candidates. Once we have identified viable candidates, we will bring them in for a few days for training.
