Job title: Trainee editor

Salary: £10 per hour

Hours: Full-time (35 hours per week)

Location: New Mills

Closing date: 27 May 2022

We are looking for someone to join our close-knit team of editors.


We believe that everyone should have access to clear and concise information. Our editors transform documents by getting rid of jargon, legalese and overly formal or complicated language, to make documents clear and understandable. The range of documents we edit means that the work is varied and interesting.


Initially the role will involve providing support to the editing department, including general office duties, proofreading and updating Excel spreadsheets, alongside training to become a plain-English editor.

Job requirements

Due to the specialised nature of our work, no previous experience is necessary. The successful candidate will be given specific training in plain-English techniques.

Candidates need to have:

  • a high standard of education;
  • excellent communication skills;
  • experience of using Microsoft Office, particularly Word; and
  • an aptitude for relaying important information in a clear way that is appropriate to the reader.
