Changes to #4175 Contract Technical Author, Swindon

We’ve just amended the job description for the contract vacancy #4175 Contract Technical Author, Swindon. This project involves working on Cloud-based applications, rather than enterprise software, which means the content will be written in Markdown rather than DITA.

Ideally, you will have experience in the following areas:

  • Developing web-based online Help
  • Working in an Agile environment
  • Cloud-based solutions
  • Video-based instruction (although is less important).

Apologies for any confusion caused.
