Grammar Expert (Re-advertisement): Open till Monday, October 5, 2020, at 1:00 PM

We initially advertised this position in July and August this year. However, none of the candidates who applied matched our needs. If you already applied for this position and got an email message regretting that your application was unsuccessful, please do not reapply.

Number of Positions

One (1).


We provide writing services to a global clientèle. Therefore, high-quality grammar is the cornerstone of our success. We are looking for an expert in the English language to help us maintain high-quality writing standards.

Among other responsibilities, the successful candidate will:

1. Ensure that we maintain a panel of high-quality freelance writers who: (a) deliver high-quality, properly-formatted papers with great content, impeccable grammar, and zero plagiarism; (b) deliver papers within allotted deadlines; and (c) follow customer instructions to the letter. The successful candidate will be responsible for vetting prospective freelance writers to certify that they meet our standards before joining our freelance writers' panel. The successful candidate will also be required to evaluate freelance writers' accounts periodically to ensure that high-quality writing standards are always maintained.

2. Proofread content deemed crucial for our business (e.g., content to be uploaded to our websites, marketing emails to be sent to customers, etc.).
3. Offer their grammar expertise to our technical team during the development, implementation, testing, and deployment of software systems.

Education and Skills

  • A diploma or degree in any field. However, an advanced degree (Masters or PhD) in English or any field related to the English language is highly desirable. A complimentary certificate, diploma, or degree in Human Resource Management or a related field would also be beneficial, but it is not necessary.
  • Excellent grammar. The ability to write Standard English without syntactic or semantic errors is a crucial requirement.
  • The successful candidate must be conversant with formal writing styles, particularly academic writing styles. Crucially, the successful candidate must have excellent knowledge and experience writing academic papers in both the American Psychological Association (APA; 7th edition) and the Modern Language Association (MLA; 8th edition) styles. Advanced knowledge of APA (7th edition) formatting guidelines is especially vital.
  • Computer literate. Candidates must have experience using computers and the Internet. They should be conversant with the Microsoft Office Suite, especially Microsoft Word 2016, Microsoft PowerPoint 2016, and Microsoft Excel 2016 applications.
  • Fast learner. Willingness and ability to learn and apply new ideas quickly is vital.
  • Proactive and self-motivated. We are not looking for someone we will supervise as they work; rather, we are interested in an individual who will work under minimal supervision; an individual with a passion for writing, in general, and academic writing, in particular; an individual we will not always tell what to do, but who will not only advise us on what needs to be done, but they will also do what needs to be done within a reasonable timeframe.
  • Straightforward and honest.
