You take two tests on the vacancy page, to see if this would be a good match for you. Neither test takes very long and is a good way of checking if it is a genuine thing you'd like to do, before getting too deep into it.
If you pass the tests, and you feel like its something you like, then you earn £25 per hour of full transcription audio, £15 for summaries and £10 for notes. You will get paid for the audio you transcript, and it normally takes roughly 3 to 4 times the length of the audio to complete the full transcription. To get paid, you invoice Take Note every month, saying how much you have worked, and how many files you have transcripted, and you will receive payment via BACS in the first fortnight of every month.
There are 4 different shift patterns that you can pick up:
- Early morning – file sent to you by 6am – deadline for return, 10am.
- Day shift – file sent to you by 11am (often earlier) – deadline for return, 4pm.
- Evening shift – file sent to you by 5pm – deadline for return, 6am the following morning.
- Weekend shifts usually have longer deadlines but transcribers can receive up to 120 mins of audio.
