I have a busy schedule, can I still become an interpreter?

We will inform you whenever there is a booking in your language combination(s) in your local area. But, you don’t have to worry if for example, you are unable to accept a particular booking as you have full control as to whether you accept or decline a session. In addition, if you would like to take a break from work, then you can simply inform us and we will resend you bookings whenever you are ready.

Essentially, you are in charge of how much you work and where you work.

Can I become a face-to-face interpreter and a remote interpreter?

Yes, if you are confident and competent at providing additional services, then we can accommodate to this.

I don't have an interpreting qualification, can I still become an interpreter?

We view all applications holistically. Although possession of an interpreting qualification is beneficial, if you have sufficient professional experiences or have references that can vouch for you interpreting ability, then we also take this into account.
