If you already have some proofreading or editing experience, Becoming A Proofreader is a great way to invest in your professional development, maximise your skills, and take your career forward.

We believe that a great work–life balance is crucial to health and happiness, so we let our proofreaders choose their own hours and workload. This means you can work when you want and where you want, designing a schedule that fits around your lifestyle.
We want our editors to thrive. So, even though you’ll work remotely, we have a dedicated support team on hand to guide you through our training, editing processes, and guidelines. We’ll also provide helpful feedback, so you can keep on honing your editing skills.
Our per-project payment makes it easy to decide which jobs you want to take on. We also show you how much you’ll be paid for all documents before you accept them, and you’ll receive your payments promptly, making this a reassuringly simple process.
To help our editors with their work, we’ve built an incredible support team. This includes expert quality control editors who guarantee company-wide consistency, account managers who help manage our business clients, and a first-rate operations team.
To build this team, we drew on our pool of freelancers, recruiting people who are not only skilled proofreaders but also thrive working in a fast-paced, customer-facing role. This means they provide the perfect point of contact for editors and customers alike.
