Looking at working with us at Atlas Translations?

We are a small but busy team working out of our offices in St Albans, Devon 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 (2023-24) and 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.

Atlas have been translating (policy documents) for us into several languages since 2004. They are friendly and efficient and have always provided accurate and cost-effective translations well within the agreed deadlines.

Oxford Policy Management

Atlas provided another high-quality French translation of one of our policy briefs. They respond quickly to our needs and delivered a document that we were confident to send straight to printing and distribution. We’re happy to include Atlas as one of our trusted partners.
