JOBS: APPLICATION – FAQ: How much work do you provide?
As an established company, we continually have large volumes of work throughout the year. However, depending upon which job you apply for, the nature and consistency of the work will vary.

For transcription work the volume of work tends to vary depending on the stream and client base. English Transcription Projects work tends to be project-related. The volume can be quite high at certain times of the year, while the transcription is usually processed over a long period of time. This stream is, therefore, very suitable for starter transcribers with the base skill set required to be formally registered to work for us.

English Transcription Main and English Transcription Advanced streams are more suited to experienced transcribers and the payment rate is, therefore, usually higher. The work is less project-related and the turnaround times for delivery of the transcripts are generally shorter.
