Interpreting and Translation Opportunities

Do you speak other languages?

We are looking for caring individuals to join a service providing translations for patients at our City and QMC sites.

The development is part of the Trust’s drive to provide a better service to patients speaking other languages while bringing down translation costs paid to external agencies. The Trust is looking for volunteers who can be trained and provide a service while they work towards a formal qualification.

Volunteer interpreters will bolster an emergency in-house service which currently relies mainly on members of staff who volunteer. External agencies still provide the majority of translation services at the Trust.

If you are a bilingual speaker, language student or native speaker with an excellent command of English and are interested in volunteering please contact Renata Towlson, Interpreting and Translation Project and Contract Manager.
