I also have experience working as a researcher and copy-editor for a senior professor of government, which relied heavily on exacting word-processing and formatting skills.
I am also confident with a more commercial style, having worked on report-production for a business consultancy. This post also involved the formatting of data displays and slide presentations.
I am a capable researcher (using both conventional and electronic means), having been recently awarded a Distinction for my interdisciplinary research-based MA in humanities and social sciences.
