Technical Documentation Positions with Docmates

Docmates Associate Circle

Docmates has set up an Associates Circle to act as its resource pool of Technical Documentation professionals for when they are needed to meet the requirements of projects. By submitting a CV for inclusion in the Associates Circle, Docmates will consider you first before going to the job market. On receipt of your CV, Docmates will review it for suitability and will then contact you with a questionnaire to complete. This questionnaire will ask for details of hardware and software, insurance, location and travel preferences, trading status, availability, industry preferences, etc. This information will be retained to help Docmates match the best professional to the requirement.

An ideal Associate would have their own Ltd company, have indemnity insurance in place, have a (home) office setup with a PC or laptop and up to date software including virus protection, be prepared to work away as necessary but want to work from own office as much as is practical. However, Docmates is realistic enough to know that not all of this may be achievable!

The ultimate aim is to establish a good personal and working relationship between Docmates and the Associate to the mutual benefit of both parties.

Docmates would like to receive CVs, which should be sent to, from the following technical documentation professionals:

  • Technical Authors
  • Technical Writers
  • Proof Readers
  • Editors
  • Technical Illustrators
  • Graphic Designers
  • Website Developers
  • Document Controllers
  • SharePoint Developers
  • Information Management professionals.

Although Docmates is based in Aberdeen, Scotland, our clients are UK and Europe wide. Therefore enquiries are welcomed from suitable candidates from throughout the UK.
