Client: Hays Recruitment
Services: Proofreading and editing
Hays is the world’s largest specialist recruitment agency, with offices across 33 countries. As well as working with thousands of employers and placing millions of professionals in specialist industries each year, Hays has established itself as a leading authority in research and analysis of global labour market trends, and sector-specific challenges. They produce a number of highly-regarded publications each year, and approached me with a requirement for speedy but meticulous proofreading of these documents.
Hays’ publications are lengthy publications with a lot of in-depth content, figures and infographics. They have a very tight turnaround between design and going to print, meaning proofing has to be done swiftly and efficiently, often taking into account time-zones, such as when proofing a publication for their Australia office. The finished publications are read by a wide global audience of specialist employers and labour market experts, so Hays need 100% confidence in their accuracy.
I have successfully turned around several documents for Hays, including both their 2017 and 2018 ‘Global Skills Index’, a complex analysis report of great importance to the company. I have managed to juggle other work to meet their deadlines and Hays are pleased with the results, establishing a great ongoing working relationship.
Louise has proofread several our reports and publications and we have been extremely pleased with the outcome. Louise’s attention to detail is second-to-none and she has always managed to turn the work around in the required time. On top of the great work that she does, Louise is always a pleasure to deal with.
