  • Developing and maintaining a clear and consistent brand voice.
  • Proofreading written and digital products for spelling, grammar, punctuation, syntax, usage, consistency, and brand voice.
  • Verify the accuracy of all referenced facts (e.g., times, dates, statistics) and double-check cross-referenced materials.
  • Review content with an eye towards campaign, ministry, and brand consistency.

Qualifications

  • Proficiency in word-processing and editing software (e.g., Microsoft Office, Google Drive)
  • Knowledge of various style manuals (e.g., AP Stylebook, Chicago Manual of Style)
  • A degree (or working towards a degree) in English, journalism, communications, or a related field
  • Organized, able to work on tight deadlines, able to be flexible with change, feedback, and constructive criticism
  • Excellent writing, editing, and proofreading skills with a diligent eye for detail, language, flow, and grammar
