Project Co-ordinator needed -Atlas Translations to recruit new junior position

Project Co-ordinator Team, Atlas Translations, St Albans, Translation agency, Clare Suttie, London

We have created a new junior position of Project Co-ordinator to work with Project Managers at Atlas Translations to help us grow further after a very busy and successful couple of years.

Last date to apply: 06 April 2021.- Applications are now closed. 

In 2020, Atlas Translations has demonstrated resilience and agility, resulting in our most successful year of trading since our launch in 1991. We have achieved this with hard work and strong relationships with our clients, freelancers and trusted, committed staff.

We are looking for a Project Co-ordinator for a 12 month contract position, who will assist the Project Managers with their work. As this is a new position, the job description is broad, flexible and up for discussion over the next 12 months – to some extent it can shift to match the person.

All the usual requirements you’d expect for project management-based work would be welcome of course:

  • Great communication skills – verbal and written – for working with linguists and clients across cultures
  • Postive attitude
  • Able to act quickly, juggle tasks, manage deadlines
  • Thrive in a busy environment
  • Organising and prioritising workload and time
  • Discretion and confidentiality
  • Able to work alone, in a team, remotely and in an office (that covers just about every option, then)!

The role includes liaising with linguists and clients, quality checking, document formatting. There is an opportunity for translation and proofreading work in-house and/or freelance if you have suitable experience, or we can provide training in this area.

Anything else we’d like?

  • Fluency in a second language
  • Methodical approach and eye for detail
  • The willingness to go the extra mile for our customers
  • Excellent IT skills
  • Common sense

Degree in languages, translation or similar subject would be preferred but is not essential. This is a full-time role.

We think that working at Atlas Translations is interesting, rewarding and enjoyable. You would be dealing with a variety of projects – written translations, interpreting assignments, voice-over recordings, subtitling, and more. Every client is different, no day is the same.

You will need to be based/have the right to work in the UK. We are an equal opportunities employer.

What do we offer YOU?

We are a small but busy team working out of St Albans, Exeter, and later this year, Bath. Depending on government COVID-19 guidance, the post may start remotely, but will then move to be office-based. Currently our main office in St Albans, we plan to open hubs in Exeter and Bath in summer 2021.

Childcare vouchers, NEST pension, bottomless tea and coffee at the office, paid holiday and bank holidays are standard. We do not require any overtime and believe in a good work/other life balance. There is a monthly bonus scheme based on office turnover. A second bonus is paid based on individual projects. Starting salary £21000 pa, plus bonuses. Last date to apply: 06 April 2021.

How to apply:

Please drop a line to Clare – clare @ atlas-translations.co.uk . Make it personal, make it creative, make us notice you,  and attach your CV.
