We are HFE, and award winning training provider to the health and fitness profession.

We're currently looking for competent and proficient scientific writers who have a proven track record of producing quality and engaging written content.

Who We’re looking for?

We're specifically looking for those with a rich understanding in the areas of anatomy, physiology, nutrition, health sciences and rehabilitation. A good understanding of the sport and active leisure sector would also be preferable, but is not mandatory.
While we have an ongoing need for people to produce educational content for our blog, we also have two rather larger projects (detailed below) that we’re seeking to procure suitable writers for.

1. We have a rather large (75,000 words) student training manual (manuscript only) for a Level 4 Certificate in Managing Low Back Pain. The programme is primarily targeted at exercise professionals from varying disciplines and while all the content has been written, it does need sub-editing, technically proofing and presenting in a more fluid manner.

2. We’re looking for a suitable writer to produce a comprehensive training manual (manuscript only) to support the delivery of a Level 4 Certificate in Exercise Interventions for Obese and Diabetic Clients. This project will again require a sound and robust understanding of health sciences, exercise, anatomy, physiology and nutrition. A rich understanding of metabolism and metabolic disorders would also be desirable.

If you believe that you could make a meaningful contribution to any of the above projects please feel free to get in touch to discuss the projects in more detail.
