In the early stages of your career in the translation industry?
Our Work Placement Scheme is closed for the time being, but watch this space for our next round of applications. You are welcome to contact Charlie Reston to register your interest, and she will be in touch once applications re-open.
Should you be interested in applying to take part in a future placement, we ask that you send us an updated CV and cover letter, outlining what you think you can bring to the team and why you are suitable. Make it personal, make it creative, and let us know who you are!
We want you to get the most out of any placement as possible, so if you’re in the early stages of your career and have particular areas of interest, do let us know so that we can shape the responsibilities around you and your desired career path.
Successful candidates will be invited to an informal interview which may be remote, depending on where you are based. Before applying, please do make sure you are able to commit to working in our St Albans office every day, Monday to Friday.
Please note, we will pay you the Living Wage (which, as of this writing, is currently £10.90 per hour) for 30 hours a week.
Any questions at all, don’t hesitate to email Charlie or give her a call on 01727 812725.
Still at school and looking for work experience?
If you’re keen to pursue languages as a career and/or in future studies after school, then get in touch to see whether we might be able to offer you some work experience and shadowing in our St Albans office.
We’ll give you the opportunity to understand the goings on in a translation agency by inviting you to shadow our friendly team of project managers – we may even ask you to do some mock translations for us!
If this sounds like something you might enjoy, drop us an email outlining when you would like to come and join us, letting us know your language(s) and any other interests. It’s always nice to get a sense of who you are, so make it creative and personal!
We have been offering work placements since 1993. We are pleased that previous placement students have found them to be invaluable. Some have ended up working in-house for Atlas, others have gone on to other translation companies. Many now work for Atlas on a freelance basis.
It should be noted that students are NOT assigned translation work (unless they have relevant commercial experience).
We take on students and graduates from both the UK and overseas.
