Who we are

LingServe is a growing translation company offering high-end translation services from German to English only. We serve an almost exclusively German customer base from our offices on the Surrey/Hants border with a team of both inhouse and external translators.

What we are looking for

We are currently looking to recruit a German to English financial translator. 
Candidates must have native-speaker command of English and proven expertise in the area of accounting or financial services.

The following would constitute our ideal applicant profile:

• Completely fluent in German
• Professional qualifications/work experience in the fields of finance, 
accounting or financial markets
• Outstanding writing skills in English
• Lived and worked for an extended period in a German-speaking country
• Educated to at least degree level
• Previous experience of translation and/or copywriting
• Good computer literacy
• Previous experience with Adobe InDesign

In more general terms, candidates should have a genuine interest in translation/writing, must be able to work under pressure to deadlines when necessary and be able to accept and learn from constructive criticism as part of a translation team.

What we offer

We offer an informal but thoroughly professional working environment, the 
opportunity to work as part of a team of highly competent translators for a range of demanding but generally cooperative and helpful customers, a competitive salary, a discretionary bonus scheme and a pension plan for permanent staff positions.

The advertised position is for a twelve-month contract with the possibility of a permanent contract. The precise terms and conditions are subject to negotiation and depend on the individual profile of the applicant. All applicants will be expected to complete test translations as part of the selection process.

Please respond in the first instance by attaching your CV and any other information you consider pertinent.
