Job Description

We are looking for a Technical Writer with experience writing documentation for software systems and products to join a West London based Entertainment Company for a three month contract.

As the company has grown and evolved over the years, so have their systems and processes, and they have reached the point where they need everything to be documented properly. This is a great opportunity to work for a successful, forward thinking entertainment brand, and play a key role in helping to document their systems and products.

The core focus of this role will be to produce high quality technical documentation, which in turn will allow users to fully understand and get the most out of products. This will mean working throughout the full product delivery lifecycle, so that you can build a detailed understanding of products from both a technical and a user point of view. You will then need to write technical documentation, which could be for a range of different audiences, including user interface text, online help and developer guides. You may also need to employ the use of photographs, drawings and charts to complement your written work.

To be considered for this role you must have a track record of commercial experience in a Technical Writing role or similar, ideally with some experience in a media and/or entertainment environment. In addition, we are looking for the following;

  • Proven working experience in technical writing of software documentation.
  • The ability to quickly grasp technical concepts and make them easily understandable in text and pictures.
  • The ability to write high quality documentation that is appropriate for its intended audience.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and spoken.
  • Ideally, a technical background or a degree in a technical subject.

We are looking for someone who will be able to build effective working relationships with stakeholders across all areas of the business, and who will be able to contribute to the overall success of the company. This means you will need to be a strong and confident communicator, with the energy and enthusiasm to work in a fast paced entertainment company. If this sounds like you then we'd love to hear from you. Please contact Will Fraser at Handle Recruitment for more information.
