Writing Coach Overview

18 Dec 2019

The nthuse Writing Coach helps you to write inclusive, high-performing job adverts. It does this by providing feedback, suggestions and analysis of your writing in four key areas:

  • Correctness, spelling and grammar
  • Clarity, readability and jargon
  • Biased or non-inclusive language
  • Structure and format

There are two ways nthuse provides feedback:

  1. Alerts – these cards give suggestions for how to rewrite your job advert to make it perform better
  2. Writing Coach Report – this detailed report tells you how your job advert scores compared to the market

Alerts

As you write, nthuse will highlight low-performing or non-inclusive words and phrases. These alerts are shown alongside your text as cards.

Click on the highlighted text or on a card to see feedback on your text as well as suggestions for how to improve it.

Click on the suggested word to swap it into your text.
