Proofreader

Creative Team

Our proofreaders are often the last line of defense before a deliverable goes out the door. It’s this team’s responsibility to capture and question misspellings and inconsistencies and note when something just doesn’t sound right or seem to be in the right place. Attention to detail is the centerpiece of the proofreader’s skill set. Whether on paper or on screen, they must have a knack for catching the most trivial of errors along with the most glaring.

Responsibilities

  • Proofread for a wide variety of needs, including but not limited to social media calendars, websites, job descriptions and brochures
  • Work effectively and efficiently in a fast-paced, high productivity environment, with a sense of urgency and a high-level of attention to detail
  • Manage priorities and workload effectively to meet all predetermined workflow schedules and deadlines (or flag when more time is needed)
  • Examine not only the words but also the greater context, as well as compare pages to one another – noting things like inconsistent headline capitalization, change of voice or major contextual inconsistencies, like misplaced content (i.e. a paragraph about pet groomers on a webpage about distribution centers)
  • Rephrase written text to ensure document structure and content are consistent
  • Ensure illustrations are suitably captioned and referenced
  • Perform other duties as may be assigned
