This is a test run and a candidate who provides me with a high level of service will get repeat work. I will share a google sheets document with you, and provide you with a topic to do with either sustainability, plastic items or another eco topic. The sheet will contain the following headers: "Source", "URL", "Fact", "Comment". You simply need to search the internet for facts on the topic and put the name of the company/agency/organisation that each fact is from under the source column, a URL link to this fact in the URL column and the COPY AND PASTED fact (please do not reword) into the fact column. The comment column is if you have something to say about it - it's fine if this is blank all .
The source must be:
a) A credible source
b) Backed by either research OR a quote from an individual who works in that field
c) For a given fact the source must not be obviously biased e.g. don't quote oil companies on the effect on the environment for oil rigs!
- Government analysis
- Research companies
- Companies directly related to your task
- PDFs from reputable sources
- Blog posts (these are a good way to initially find facts to then look for elsewhere though!)
- Social Media
You can use the same source for multiple facts
You must find at least three sources before the completion of your task
You must find at least 5 facts or citations per hour (ie the same fact backed by two sources counts as 2 here)
When finding facts please focus on the UK or world wide and not another country-specific.
If you are struggling to find sources you must contact me. I need a reliable partner and while I am being clear with my requirements I am looking for someone who will try their best but always be comfortable indicating if they are struggling.
Please note google sheets is basically Microsoft excel online, so if you don't have any experience with sheets don't worry about it.
The topic is "Micro plastics". Ideas to look into (please search for other facts too):
- How much plastic is estimated in the ocean or size of the different garbage patches
- What is micro plastic
- Health concerns
- How to stop it ( stop at source via tax, consuming alternatives etc )
Estimated task time: 3 hours
Estimated fact count: 10-20
Minimum citation count: 4
Looking for ~£6 per hour
Candidates must be individuals, companies will not be hired
