Interested in supporting cutting edge research through transcription or closed-captioning? Looking for fairly paid, flexible, accessible remote work? Share our commitment to accessibility and social–especially disability–justice? You’re in the right place. 

Being part of the team at Academic Audio Transcription Ltd is your chance to get involved in some really interesting projects, from a history of the formation of marine archaeology as a field, research on maternal mental health and wellbeing, or experiences of Black fatherhood in the United States.

We especially welcome applications from disabled, chronically ill and neurodivergent people who are multiply marginalised, including those who are LGBTQIA+, Black, brown, or people of colour, or are working class — and many of the client projects we are privileged to support require familiarity with and sensitivity to the experiences of these and other groups.

AAT Client Liaison & General Administrator (Freelance)

We’re looking for an administrator to support with our admin processes, execute our growth strategy, and create more scope for cover amongst our team as capacity fluctuates. You’ll be primarily responsible for handling incoming inquiries from new and past clients (almost entirely via email), providing quotations, converting inquiries into bookings, and supporting clients and their institutions to onboard their projects on our server.

Details and how to apply

  • Contract-type: Part-time, remote, flexible, accessible work on a freelance contract (fixed-term or open-ended)
  • Hours: approximately 5-7 hours per week.
  • Rate: £12.10 per hour.
  • UK-based applicants preferred.
  • To apply: Send a role-specific CV with a brief covering letter introducing yourself by email to by Wednesday 15 November 2023.

What’s it like working for us? 

Our workflow and operations processes are built around our commitment to disability justice, so we offer allocations at a volume and pace to suit our freelancers needs and capacities, and we’ll always try our best to match projects with team-members’ interests and expertise. We also know that transcription, editing and closed-captioning can be quite demanding work, and one way we try to mitigate this is by as much as possible collecting trigger warnings/content notes from our clients at the project and file level, as well as asking our team members about their preferred content notes or trigger warnings too. We also have a no-questions-asked allocations return policy, since we know that there can be all sorts of reasons why work you’ve committed to complete one day just isn’t feasible a few days later, especially in a world of flare-ups, caring responsibilities, and other unexpected but not-actually-always-surprising factors. 

Sounds good? Get in touch.

We’re always keen to hear from potential freelance transcribers, editors, and captioners especially if you have experience in academic or other research contexts and share out commitment to accessibility and disability justice. 

Freelance Transcribers and Editors

We’re always open to  expressions of interest in those roles but only run 1-3 recruitment rounds annually. 

Send us an email with your CV and a bit about yourself and we’ll keep your details on file (with your permission, of course) and contact you next time recruitment opens. 

Please note, while we prioritise working with disabled, chronically ill, and neurodivergent freelancers as much as possible–and are especially keen to hear from people in this group who experience other forms of marginalisation–we work with people of all identities and backgrounds, in the UK and beyond. We’ll also never require that you disclose senstive personal information about your health or disability status, but we are always keen to hear about any access needs you might have–and will always ask about this at interview–as well as any content notes or trigger warnings that might inform your allocations. And for what it’s worth, a majority of people who work for us are disabled, chronically ill or neurodivergent, and we’re always happy to hear about and share your experiences in this regard if you would like to tell us a bit about it when you get in touch!
