The Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS National) is recruiting interpreters. To meet the growth in demand for interpreting services in Australia, TIS National will add interpreters to its panel of service providers. Interpreting work is generally done by telephone which allows interpreters to work from home, and is usually during business hours.
On-site work is also available which requires you to travel to your assignments.
