You’ve done it.
You’ve made the leap and gone freelance.
But it’s been anything but plain sailing. Sure, it’s great setting your own hours and choosing who you want to work with, but in the words of a well-known Marvel superhero, with great power comes great responsibility.
You’re hustling for new clients, you’re doing all the admin, and you’re even sorting your own *gulp* taxes! But all these extra tasks means less time for paid client work, not to mention your own training and development.
Plus it can get a little lonely being a lone wolf, right?
What if you could have ultimate freelance freedom, while being backed by a friendly, thriving MedComms agency?***
That’s exactly what you’ll get if you join our Word Monster freelance support team.
At Word Monster, we’re constantly on the lookout for smart, talented freelance medical writers. Working with freelancers means we can pull in extra resource as and when we need to, giving us the agility to adapt to situations with ninja-like flexibility. For you, this means fun and varied project work across a dizzying array of clients and therapy areas.
As a member of our freelance support team, you’ll still get to be your own boss and work on your own terms. But you’ll get a heap of extra perks, such as:
You went freelance so you could dictate your own schedule, but it feels like you’ve swapped your 9-to-5 for 24/7. You’re taking any project that comes your way, as who knows what next month will bring? But it doesn’t have to be that way. With Word Monster you’ll never have to worry about where your next piece of work is coming from, so you can step off the treadmill and relax. Now THAT’S what we call freelance freedom.
Love writing but less keen on the admin? Our studio monster will coordinate your bookings, introduce you to your clients and sort out all the invoicing (no more chasing payments). We’re also fully insured, so you’ll be covered for all scenarios. This means that all you need to focus on is delivering great work. And the best part? We won’t work with any clients that aren’t on board with our life-first culture, which means you won’t have to, either!
Training and development
Every day is a school day at Word Monster HQ, with team training and development opportunities aplenty. As one of our fabulous freelancers you’ll get free access to our monthly ‘Monster Munch’ lunch and learn sessions, where we share our MedComms skills and experiences. You’ll also get the opportunity to join our team training sessions at subsidised group rates.
As part of our extended team, you’ll be invited to join our Word Monster Skype chat, a fun and lively forum where you can keep in touch with your team of fellow writers and editors. Have a niggly grammar query? Looking for accountant recommendations? Or maybe you’re just looking for a killer choc chip cookie recipe? Whatever challenge you’re facing, someone in the chat will be happy to help.
