Answer :

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh
1. There are two issues in your work.
a)      Recording previous interest transactions.
b)      Actively engaged in obtaining interest loans.
You will be excused in recording previous interest transactions. It will not be permissible to be actively involved in preparing documents to obtain interest loans. If you will not be excused from that, you should seek an alternative employment.
2. It is permissible to enter into a business partnership with a Hindu. However, the permissibility will primarily depend on the type of partnership.
And Allah knows best
