I run a fintech consulting company offering bank, licensing, product, and business development services. I am looking for a Technical Copyeditor who can review and proofread documents on a need-basis that could grow into consistent work.

I currently need someone to review a contract with a client ASAP. It is based on a boilerplate consulting contract developed by my lawyers specifically for my business. However, I've tailored it to a specific client. I now need a copyeditor to check for clarity, math mistakes in fee details, and any inconsistencies and contradictions in the language that may have resulted from my altering the template. Having legal training does not hurt but is not necessary. The contract needs to make sense to non-legal people and is free of mistakes. The copyeditor does not need to know the correct answer but at least be able to flag when something needs a closer look.

If this goes well other types of assignments include:
  • Proofreading banking and licensing marketing materials (white papers, pitch decks, sales sheets, etc.)
  • Proofreading compliance documents
  • Compare research with research documents to ensure figures are accurate
  • Filling out and/or proofreading compliance applications to be consistent with the applicant's documents

  1. High attention to detail to spot inconsistencies, contradictions, missing or unnecessarily duplicated, and illogical statements in documents.
  2. Basic Algebra skills to notice when percentages don't equal 100% or totals are wrong.
  3. Strong grasp of the English language to correct grammar, spelling, and awkward statements for clarity purposes. Rather than for editorial purposes.
  4. Not afraid to ask me questions to ensure that you understand the assignment and the objective.
  5. Not intimidated by new subjects and can research and ask questions to ensure understanding.
