Do you have comprehensive understanding of and experience in editing for academic purposes?

Can you edit for an online environment?

Are you able to work collaboratively on team-based projects to a deadline?

If your answer to these questions is YES, then the Open Polytechnic wants to hear from you. The Open Polytechnic is currently looking for editors to join our pool of contractors to edit courseware and assessment for our fully online courses.

Editors should have experience in:

· an Aotearoa New Zealand bicultural context

· using tracked changes and comments in Microsoft Word.

Our editors are at times also asked to complete User Tests of courseware in the iQualify learning platform as a final review to ensure no errors have been introduced before going out to ākonga.

We offer great remuneration, flexible working conditions, and the opportunity to help develop the next generation of practitioners in your field.
