About Bolinda 

Bolinda has revolutionised the way people access and consume books. As the world's no.1 audiobook publisher and a leader in digital media, they combine a global reputation for excellence built over 20 years in audiobook publishing with the energy of their 5-year-old digital start-up.

Through their digital download solution, BorrowBox – your library in one app – Bolinda has spectacularly transitioned from being a library market expert and audiobook publisher to the leading digital library solution in the world.

Bolinda is a global business and can provide great opportunities for exceptional people.

About the Opportunity

Bolinda is looking for casual audiobook proof-listeners.  The role entails listening through our audiobook productions alongside the written text for quality control purposes. This will be a casual role (3–20 hours a book) and you can be based in any location in Australia as long as you have a good internet connection for the download of files.

Your role will be to ensure that the audiobook recording is of superior quality, picking up any errors made during the narrator’s performance and supplying us with a correction report listing the type of error and page, time and location within the book.

In audiobook proofing, you will be listening for and logging any extraneous noises and disruptive breaths, too-short or too-long pauses and ambient noises, all in addition to ensuring that the audio is accurate to the text (including pronunciations) and that character voices remain consistent throughout the audiobook.

About You

The successful applicant will be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Superior attention to detail
  • Proficiency in the English language
  • Competent knowledge of Microsoft Office and the ability to adapt to new software quickly
  • Strong communication and administration skills
  • Ability to work to tight deadlines

We are looking for someone who has a discerning ear, is highly detailed and has a passion for audiobooks.  

Your role will include:

  • Listening to the entire recording from beginning to end while following the final manuscript word for word to ensure we have recorded the text correctly
  • Marking up and making notes of all errors
  • Listening for character and voice consistency by the narrator throughout the entire recording of the audiobook and marking up wherever improvement or re-recording is required
  • Ensuring the accuracy, consistency and quality of the recording
  • Logging all errors and corrections
  • Considering inconsistencies in character voices, accents, intonation, distracting mouth sounds, movement noise and more

You must be comfortable with strict confidentiality agreements regarding the titles you will be working on.

This role is open to applicants Australia wide.

To apply please upload your CV along with a cover letter outlining your suitability for the role.

Applications that do not contain a cover letter will be disregarded.
