The Problem: Hiring Technical Authors is Hard
Fewer than two in every one thousand IT vacancies are for technical writing roles (source: ITJobswatch).
Mainstream recruiters lack specialised experience, making it tough to find the right candidates.
But poor documentation hurts adoption, satisfaction, and your bottom line.
Recruiting a technical writer is not like standard recruitment. Fewer writers, but many *many* different job titles. Recruiters often completely unfamiliar with tech writing. Tendency to auto-filter by keyword – which is a big problem. #writethedocs

Our Solution: A Simplified, Effective Hiring Process
With decades of technical writing experience, we understand exactly what you need.
Our process makes hiring smooth:

- Receive matched candidate CVs/resumes
- Interview top choices
- Select your perfect hire
At Cherryleaf, we’re talking to technical communicators all the time. That’s because Cherryleaf does more than just recruitment. This means your vacancy will get seen by our wide network of contacts, connecting you to a larger pool of candidates.
Hiring a contract Technical Writer is a good choice for you if you want someone to be “up and running” as soon as possible, and your existing team doesn’t have the time or skills to create the content. The difference between this service and our projects service is that, in this case, we don’t manage the project for you. You and/or the contractor determine the plan of work.
You can have a contract technical communicator for a period that suits your needs: a month, three months, six months, or a year.
We only offer permanent recruitment services to existing customers, or in exceptional cases.
Benefits: Faster Hiring, Reduced Risk
Work with us and get:
- Shortened hiring time
- Candidates that fit your needs
- Lowered hiring effort
- Reduced compliance risk
