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.

Our Solution: A Simplified, Effective Hiring Process

With decades of technical writing experience, we understand exactly what you need.

Our process makes hiring smooth:

  • Discuss your requirements
  • 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.

Contract and Recruitment Testimonials

As a freelance technical communicator I have often used Cherryleaf to help find interesting work, and the technical writing courses the company provides are second to none.

Kevin Chilton Recruitment services

When we needed a complete re-write of two of the product manuals for our specialised and complex server software, Ellis walked us through the different approaches we could take to this project, found us an author who was ideally suited to the task and managed the project with the light-touch it required.

The professional approach of Cherryleaf was in marked contrast to our previous experiences with documentation projects and I have no hesitation in recommending Cherryleaf.
