Recently received, an interesting-looking job opportunity in Brussels. Please note their requirements. I have further information if anyone would like more details of the post.
My name is Sarah Plackett and I am a full-time translator with Linguanetsprl, a long-established and busy translation agency based in central Brussels. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Linguists and I see from a recent copy of The Linguist magazine that you run an MA in Translation Studies.
We are currently seeking to recruit one or more native English speakers as full-time in-house translators in our Brussels office. We have previouslyrecruited from the translation MA courses run by the University of Bath andHerriot Watt University in Edinburgh but would like spread our net a little wider this time.I have attached a copy of our vacancy notice for you to pass on/post as youfeel appropriate - essentially we are looking for native English speakers with French and either German or Dutch - any additional languages would, of course, be a plus. Shortlisted candidates would be required to complete test translations in their relevant languages and, depending on their performance in said tests, would then be invited to Brussels for a short on-the-job trial and interview (typically 2-4 days).
I would be grateful if you could confirm receipt of this message and let meknow whether you would be able to advertise our vacancies to this year's graduating students.If you require any further information about the posts or our company, please do not hesitate to contact me at this e-mail address or by telephone on (01225) 484758 or (07855) 115482.
