The Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) is currently recruiting Ukrainian interpreters to join our panel of contract service providers. We have an increasing demand for Ukrainian interpreters and we are looking to recruit new service providers immediately.
TIS National is an interpreting service provided by the Department of Home Affairs for people who do not speak English and for agencies and businesses that need to communicate with their non-English speaking clients.
TIS National has more than 40 years’ experience in the interpreting industry and we provide;
- Immediate phone interpreting
- Pre-booked phone interpreting
- On-site interpreting
- Illegal Maritime Arrival (IMA) interpreting
The TIS National immediate phone interpreting service is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year for the cost of a local call for any person or organisation in Australia who needs an interpreter.
The National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters (NAATI) sets and maintains the professional standards for translating and interpreting in Australia. Having NAATI certified interpreters ensures requirements for interpreting services are met at a professional level, supports demand for services and acts as a bridge for communication. Most importantly it ensures the community has accessibility to services.
Current minimum requirements for certification include satisfying English language requirements and completing a 10 week on-line course. Due to our current demand we are willing to consider applicants who have not yet met these requirements. Applicants would however be required to provide references outlining any experience they may have had in this field and they would also be required to undertake a phone interview with one of our Interpreter Liaison Officers (ILO’s).
Should you wish to discuss further the opportunities available for Ukrainian speakers to become interpreters with TIS National, please contact our Interpreter Liaison Team on 1300 132 621
