Voluntary Remote Work Experience

Passionate about passing on our expertise and skills

At Words Worth Reading Ltd. we are passionate about delivering excellence in the proofreading, writing, editorial and design services we offer. We are also passionate about passing on our expertise and skills to others, which is why we are delighted to announce the launch of the Words Worth Reading Ltd Voluntary Remote Work Experience Programme.

The programme can be completed across 2-4 weeks and it requires commitment of 12-18 hours in total. When you undertake the work experience programme you will be assigned a point of contact for guidance and support. All work and communication will be completed remotely, over email or telephone.

Words Worth Reading Ltd operates a proofreading service across 4 different client groups; writers, students, job seekers and businesses. The work experience programme therefore covers these 4 areas.

For each area, a proof reading exercise is set. Each proofreading exercise is estimated to take 2-3 hours to complete. We will provide instructions for the completion of the proofread, an example of a similar proofread, and then the proofreading exercise itself. A deadline for the completion of the proofread will be set. Feedback on the proofread will be provided following completion of each piece.

In addition, we will set an exercise where a piece of creative writing needs to be critiqued, as this is a service we offer to our aspiring writer clients. Again, instructions on how to complete the critique will be provided, along with examples.

At Words Worth Reading Ltd, all proofreaders also need to be able to write commercially and creatively. To provide a little bit of experience in this field, we will set 2 articles that need to be written on proofreading areas that act as a useful resource to our clients, and we will set 4 blog titles to be written against which provides experience of a different type of writing. Again, instructions and guidance will be provided for each of these writing exercises.

Once the programme has been completed we will provide a full reference for you to use in the future, outlining exactly what work was completed, the skills ascertained by completing the programme.
