Why work for McGowan Transcriptions?

Quite simply, we are the best agency in terms of looking after our fantastic team. You will be part of a loyal, professional team; have access to our team messaging system, tips forum and fun conversation boards, as well as receive on-going training from Quality Control. Many of our transcribers choose to go on various courses to help with their development, which we fully fund. We pay on 1st of the month, always, without fail. We value the right to switch off and have work/life balance so we do not contact transcribers after 6pm. We do not subcontract abroad and you will never have to compete with each other for projects but rather work with each other as part of a growing company that was established in 1993!

We encourage applications from transcribers who come from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and who have English as their mother tongue. If you would like to see our Equality Policy please ask when you submit your CV.
