As we continue to develop and expand, we aim to maintain the two fundamental pillars of the business, quality and value. We recognize that although editing is highly skilled work that needs to be carried out by trained professionals, it’s still possible to provide high-level results at a reasonable price. We also intend to maintain—at the top levels of the business—professional senior editors who are in a position to ensure the quality of every text that is worked on.


If you have at least 5 years of editing experience and—if you are interested in academic editing—at least a master’s degree, we would be happy to hear from you. Enthusiasm for the work and verifiable academic credentials are a must. As a first step, please send your resume to If we feel you might be suitable, we’ll arrange an editing test for you, and providing you pass that, the final stage will be an interview with our team.

Our Edge


Unlike other major editing service providers, we will look at your work and your deadline requirements and confirm we can do the job according to your wishes before charging you anything. And we don't charge extra for quick deadlines!


When we receive your work for editing, we will only invoice you for a deposit. You don't need to pay the full price until everything is done and done on time. And if it's not on time, you'll get a full refund.


You will be given the name and contact details of your editor and may get in touch at any time, including to check progress before you pay the final balance. And in the very unlikely event you're not happy, we'll find you a new editor.
