I am based here in a company in France working with freelance biographers. We are currently looking to recruit freelance writers the length and breadth of the UK for e-portrait type work. An e-portrait is a way of presenting oneself online and here we aim to present people in the best possible fashion.

The way we hire our biographers is by firstly asking them to visit the website and create their own e-portait free of charge. This enables us to gauge your writing style etc and if we like what we read the second stage begins.

Stage two involves the composition of a historical biography of someone already not featured on the site. The criteria we seek here is broadly in line with stage one yet a thing to be focusing on is how instructive can you be. Basically it is like telling us something that we didn't know about the person you have chosen.

The final element is where you choose someone and do an e-portait for them. This though cannot be someone you know really well. We like to see your approach here in areas to do with gaining information about your subject, methods used ie interview with the person etc. The person you choose can help you by having material already prepared in advance.

And the end of the process hopefully we will be adding you to our network of biographers. We like to think we are flexible here and stress that biographers will be able to work the hours that suit them and create their own rate of remuneration. We have a 70/30 percent agreement where the biographer gets 70% of the fee.

I will hopefully be hearing from prospective biographers in due course.
