Audio Typist recruitment agency listing
An audio typist would be expected to listen to voice recordings through a headset, and type what they hear into a set template or format. Jobs which involve audio typing are often secretarial, where the post holder is employed to ensure that the work for one person or one department is completed in a timely manner. This can involve the typing, correction, printing, and posting of the work. Other secretarial duties are likely, including call handling, diary management and the booking of appointments.
Neither qualifications nor previous experience is always essential if a candidate can prove with a typing test that they are fast and competent. Recruitment agencies often rely on these timed tests before posting a person who has no previous experience. The competent use of computers is essential for employment in this role.
Depending on the job, salaries for staff audio typists are reasonably competitive. For example, in the NHS, they start at Band 3 on the Agenda for Change Pay Scale and can go to Band 4, which means the salary range is from £16,110 to £21,798 p.a. within this organisation.
