Careers at Atlas Translations

A busy translations agency with real people.


Looking at working with us at Atlas Translations?


We are a small but busy team working out of our offices in St Albans and Exeter, offering interesting careers at Atlas Translations. Atlas employ part-time staff and encourage flexible working. We offer working from home and in July 2019 we introduced the four day week to help staff maintain a healthier work/life balance. And we didn’t reduce their salaries. All this meant we were able to transfer to home working with ease during the COVID 19 pandemic.

Childcare vouchers, working from home one day a week, NEST pension, bottomless tea and coffee, 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. AND there is a quarterly bonus for the highest performing project manager.

During the COVID 19 pandemic, all of our staff were safely working from home. We are now back in the office with much excitement!

We have recruited two additional staff this year (2021-22). We don’t have any PM vacancies at the moment. Staff tend to stay at Atlas for quite a while, so vacancies are rare – please drop a line to Clare. Make it personal, make it creative, make us notice you,  and attach your CV.  We will keep your details, and we will contact you if something comes up.

We are potentially recruiting a couple of translators to work in-house – watch this space!


We like cake and one will usually appear for a birthday or other legitimate excuse.

If you want to find out about us and careers at Atlas Translations, this website, our blogs and social media are great places to start.  We are active members of our local business communities in Hertfordshire and Devon. Being communicators, we will talk to anyone about translation and the language business. You might meet us at an exhibition, at a careers fair, talking at a university careers evening or at the Language Show. Suppliers can sign up to attend our suppliers lunch which, in “normal” times,  we hold twice a year. This is a free event, anyone can attend, even if you have not worked with us yet.


If you are looking for a placement or internship, please visit this page. During the COVID 19 pandemic we paused our placement scheme, as placements have traditionally been office-based. We are currently considering how this may continue in the future.  We are not accepting any applications in 2021.


If you want to work with us on a freelance basis, please, do not just send us a CV – you need to apply online here  after you have read up on working with us – and contacting us to check we are a good fit with each other.
