Tools utilised include MadCap Flare, MadCap Analyser, Adobe RoboHelp, Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.
The company is subsidiary of a larger parent organisation and this small hub is now being seen as the future of the company so a huge amount of investment is going in now so that they are well ahead of in their market and remain dominant. They have some great ideas of how to innovate, they have the ideas but they now need a strong team to help they make them a reality.

There would be a few week-long international paid trips to company sites - so someone who is comfortable with air travel and staying away for 1-2 week periods is essential.
