Our exciting expansion means we are looking for a technical writer to join our established technical writing and editing team.
GRC International Plc focuses on cyber security, governance, risk management, and legal and regulatory compliance, so unlike technical writing work at many other companies, ours is often tailored to managers and boards. Our wide array of products and services also means that our technical writers must be comfortable developing books, white papers, web application user guides, software manuals, documentation toolkits and training materials. Technical writers need to be able to communicate clearly with developers and subject-matter experts to achieve this.
Although a single technical writer will typically own a writing project, they are encouraged to share their work with the other technical writers for feedback or to discuss style, technical details and so on. Technical writers should also document stylistic or technical choices for inclusion in style guides so that style can be maintained on an ongoing basis.
In particular, we are seeking a technical writer who has demonstrable experience in legal and/or compliance matters. This role requires not only exceptional writing skills, but also a deep understanding of how organisations respond to compliance requirements, especially those relating to laws and regulations.
Our technical writers are also involved in copy-editing and must be able to edit quickly and accurately. We expect the technical writer to edit for accuracy of content as well as to improve the quality of writing. IT Governance sets a very high bar for the quality of its publications, and the technical writing team is an essential component.
This role would be suited to someone currently working in a legal/compliance role who has excellent writing skills and is looking for a new challenge.
To apply for this vacancy, please submit your CV, a covering letter and a sample of your writing to email@example.com. (No agencies, please.)
Location: Office-based – Ely, CB7 – or home-based within the UK
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from candidates of any and all backgrounds.
