Our research, transcription and proofreading services are thriving and have grown from a one-woman micro-business to now providing work for three members of Work4ME.

Helen Rice started the service in 2012 as a way of working flexibly from home and utilising her academic background. She began by providing transcription services for independent researchers at Stirling University and undertaking academic research projects. Her services also include data analysis, facilitating focus groups and conducting one-on-one interviews. Her client base grew quickly and she was able to expand the service by bringing in Holly Scott and Gail Richardson who work independently but collaborate on larger projects.

Having varied professional backgrounds, the three have a strong foundation in academic and business writing requirements and have undertaken projects from Heriot-Watt, Stirling, Birmingham and Kingston Universities as well as Glasgow School of Art. Charities such as Scottish Autism, Pain Concern and a number of social enterprises and consultancies such as Abianda in London regularly make use of their services.

Clients can share documents, audio files and/or video recordings via a secure, file-drop service and receive a well-constructed and edited transcript by electronic mail in return. The Work4ME team work closely with clients to ensure that transcripts are tailored to their exact requirements.

The service is seamless, simple and always delivered by agreed deadlines.

One thought on “Work4ME research, transcription and proofreading services

  1. Hello all
    I know that I have not been in touch for a very long while but was delighted to to see this pop into my email.

    I’m so pleased, Helen, to see how this has gone from strength to strength. I never have got around to persuing the transcription route mainly because I am still well occupied with pupils and freelance writing.

    Wishing you and your team continued success and best wishes to Shona, Liz and everyone else at work4ME.

    Kind regards
