Takenotetyping offer services such as live note taking. For this you would need to have 80wpm+ (that counts me out then – only got 75!).

Quality Typist Jobs


They suggest using https://10fastfingers.com/typing-test/english to test your speed. The pay is good at £15+ per hour. The currency is in sterling pounds but I don’t believe it states you have to be based in the UK.

If you do not reach the 80wpm then there is always the option of signing up as a transcriptionist with them.

2. Document Direct for quality typist jobs

Document Direct advertise for document production specialists based in the UK. Most of their clients are within the legal so they do ask for legal experience. You will need advanced levels of Microsoft Word expertise. I have worked for this company and they offer good rates of pay.

They also have freelancer positions available for audio transcriptionists. They are specifically looking for experience within the legal or medical sector. There is an online application in which they ask for the last legal firm you worked at. It also asks some legal specific questions.

3. Bluebird Services

This is a PA position. They ask that you have previous legal secretarial/PA. The tasks that you could be asked to do are very varied. I have met the managing director of this company and know it to be a professional company. Check it out if you have the necessary experience.

4. Outsec

Outsec’s minimum requirements are that typists should have at least two years’ typing experience. Their specialism should be in property, legal, medical, financial or interviews. They also ask for a minimum typing speed of 70wpm. As long as you fulfil their requirements – check out their full list at http://www.outsec.co.uk/work-for-us/typists-faqs.html, you can pretty much be located anywhere.

5. PeoplePerHour

Peopleperhour is a good place to find typing jobs. There could be high competition though. You will need to apply to the job posted and it is quite hard to win the jobs. You can also set up what is called an hourlie. I have set one up to create a business form and I have had a few sales from this. If you have a specific specialism then you could set an hourlie up for a set amount.
