Job Summary

 

Brella Productions, a new-media production company, is seeking a Freelance Proofreader/Editor to work on-site at our client’s north suburban location.

 

The candidate will provide quality assurance for pharmaceutical marketing and educational materials in a fast-paced in-house ad agency.

Job Description

  • Working knowledge of AMA style, including referencing; familiarity with proofreader’s marks
  • Curious: Consistently dig below the surface to ensure content accuracy (no phone number, web address, or name goes unchecked, even if it’s in the source material)
  • Critical thinker/Proactive problem-solver: Able to recognize potential content issues, ask questions, and do the research to make it right
  • Flexible: Each project review varies greatly, based on project complexity, media type, project stage, audience, deadline, brand guidelines, etc. Learn the nuances of these variables and review accordingly
  • Organized: Able to project-manage workload in a fast-paced, high-volume environment and shift priorities to accommodate fluctuating deadlines
  • Team-oriented: It takes a village to produce high-quality communications, so we work closely with account managers, writers, designers, and clients on a daily basis
