Freelance Finder

Freelance Finder is the PTCs online directory that gives publishers and other organisations access to freelancers who have successfully completed one or more of the following Publishing Training Centre Self-Study courses:

  • Basic Proofreading
  • Copy-Editing by Distance Learning
  • Basic Editing
  • Intermediate Editing
  • Essential Copy-Editing
  • Editorial Project Management
  • Picture Research
  • Creative Copywriting

Therefore, everyone on this directory has not only been trained to a very high standard, but has also had his or her abilities rigorously assessed.

In this way we aim to:

  • help publishers and others to find quality freelancers
  • help PTC graduates to find work
  • maintain high standards in publishing.

You can search the directory either by picking an area of work, such as proofreading, from the links below, or use the search box to enter your own criteria and / or search a wider range of fields. For example, you might want to look for an area of expertise (e.g. by typing in something like 'medical'). Or you might want to search for members of a particular organisation (e.g. the SfEP).
