You’re the one they turn to when it gets beyond the slapping of text onto a slide template, aren’t you? You’re the one who can do things in PowerPoint that leave your colleagues saying, “It does that?” You’re the one who brings training and talent from the worlds of art and design, marries them up with real tech chops, and makes PowerPoint sing. Now, come do that lovely thing you do for this major medical facility, which needs some work-from-home, part-time project help. It promises to be enjoyable, creative work, and, as you know, it’s always good to have an in at a company of this stature.
There’s some significant rebranding going on, and that means rebuilding a whole suite of PowerPoint templates to get them all up to speed and all in alignment. For each of them, you’ll draw on your considerable aesthetic and design skills to build out a new look, applying what you know about the unit to which it pertains, and fitting it with the design elements of the new brand. Obviously your layout and design will be sensitive to the needs and communication objectives of the unit you happen to be serving at the time.
Because you’ll be working in the unique world of the medical industry, you may need to do some custom trainings to fill in any knowledge gaps.

You work independently with fine discipline and no need for hand-holding, and you keep your projects carefully organized, hitting your deadlines reliably.
