Frequently asked questions

What is our ideal candidate like?

Our ideal candidate shares our passion for languages and culture, and our commitment to delivering high-quality translations to our customers.

Project management is a multi-faceted role that often involves working on several projects at the same time. Good organisational skills, a talent for multitasking and the ability to work under pressure are essential for this role.

A big part of being a project manager is to communicate effectively with your team of linguists, your colleagues and your clients. Our ideal candidate has excellent communication skills and is comfortable speaking to colleagues and customers on the phone, by email and via online messaging tools. Speaking another language would be a bonus, but is not essential for this role.

Other personal qualities we appreciate include a positive attitude towards work, the ability to adapt quickly, and a general thirst to learn new things.

Whether you are just starting out in project management or already have some experience, we will provide onboarding and training when you start in your role, so that you are equipped to do your best work.
