I am looking for someone who can help me with a project I am currently working on. The project is an IT infrastructure project so any experience in this area and professional project management would be beneficial. The current project should last until Feb/March 2010, and I am looking for consistent part time involvement until then.
The areas I need assistance with are:
Taking minutes from meetings
Typing up notes
Writing documents based on notes and phone calls
Occasional advanced excel work - (charting/manipulating raw data)
Example documents that need typing and reviewing are:
Business case documents
Project status reports
Project risks and issues
Please note this project is run between the US and the UK so I am looking for someone with exceptional English language skills.
Ultimately I am looking to build a long term business relationship to leverage your skills in this area.
The rate needs to be competitive, but I do expect to pay for the best so please understand that I am looking first for someone that I can really leverage to the best advantage, so experience in the areas above is very important.
I am expecting there to be about 250 hours of work in total for someone who is efficient and familiar with what I am doing, obviously this will take a lot more time for someone who is not used to this sort of work. Please take this into consideration.
I would expect to be billed monthly on an hourly basis, so please bid for the whole job with an hourly rate for additional work.
There is also an opportunity for additional work - scheduling of migrations and very customer facing, this will depend on level of experience and professionalism. This can be agreed when a level of confidence is attained.
I would expect a lot of this work to be in the first few months, to die down and then a rush of documentation towards the end.
All meetings take place via conference calls with toll free access numbers for most countries.
I have received a lot of responses to this post in a short time, and I do appreciate the effort, in order to ensure that I can evaluate the responses, please include the answers to the following questions in any bids:
(1) What skills could you bring to this project?
(2) What experience do you have that is relevant to this project?
(3) Could you please provide information on availability to dial into conference calls? (GMT)
(4) What areas are you not confident in delivering? - I do expect a responce to this.
For additional information the project is an enterprise class backup migration project, any familiarity with this type of project would be a distinct advantage.
