In the context of the development of KluwerArbitration, the world’s leading resource for international arbitration research, Wolters Kluwer is searching for several freelance subject matter experts (SMEs) to start work in July 2021. The appointments will be for approximately six months, on a full-time basis (forty hours per week).

Wolters Kluwer is developing a range of data driven solutions to aid users of KluwerArbitration to better find the content they are looking for. Artificial intelligence and machine learning tools, developed in collaboration with solution and content experts, are being used to locate, capture and control the required data. To ensure that this data is of the best possible quality, the SMEs will review the content and data in an enrichment portal, making corrections where necessary. Not only will this correct mistakes, but the system will learn to avoid them in the future. Ultimately, the data can be used by users of KluwerArbitration to deep dive specific content sets, based on topics, people, and other types of metadata.

The SMEs will liaise with the in-house arbitration content expert, but also with leading professionals in the field.

Skills required:

  • Keen interest and good knowledge of arbitration law and arbitration-related concepts and content
  • Eye for detail
  • Excellent / very good command of English
  • Working knowledge of other languages such as Spanish, French and/or German is a strong asset
  • Ability to use own initiative and efficient time management
  • Affinity with online tools

This is a unique opportunity to work with a leading publisher and expert editors, and to make an important contribution to a high-profile online project on arbitration law.

The candidate should be in a position to at least carry out the duties over the summer months of July, August and September 2021, although the project will continue beyond then.
