Reference from Fionn – homeworker for Owen Reed as a Proofreader/Examiner
From 2013-2016 I was employed as a home-based proofreader with Owen Reed, working primarily for Magic Circle firm Allen & Overy, proofreading legal (and marketing) documents for sense, house style and grammar, checking cross-referencing within and between documents and comparing documents for changes. I was part of a bank of legal proofreaders, working closely with Owen Reed, who were available 24/7 and all year round, providing a seamless and often time critical service. Being home based allowed me the freedom to be available at any time of the day or night, to be focused and ready when work came in and to become an expert at self-managing my workload. I particularly enjoyed working with the team at Owen Reed, led by Anna Wallbank, who were always on hand to offer any advice, support or clarification and who were also simply a joy to work with.
