A Profit Oriented Workplace
There was a great balance between work and family life and great communication with the HR team; useful benefits. Although there was some kind of compulsory training, it was usually irrelevant to me as an interpreter; or it was very basic. I really wanted to develop in my role but it was not possible. Although the company would be willing to let me go for an external training, they weren't able to sponsor the training for me. The hourly wage was very close to the national minimum wage, so I could not afford the training. I was working really hard to achieve our KPIs but I had just a very small pay rise during my 6 years with them and I felt undervalued. There was an amazing range of clients. Apart from interpreting for government institutions, I often interpreted for vulnerable clients, e.g. victims of trafficking, social services, people with mental issues and I would love to have someone to talk to about gloomy situations we were listening to for most parts of our working days but the support was limited and very difficult to get access to. I was made redundant during my maternity leave, together with the rest of my team.

Horrible place to work
They treat linguist very badly , no protection whatsoever , pay below minimum wage, 5min break per hour which is to short to take that,s unbelievable, a lot of pressure, stress the lack of respect for your time, they don,t pay for making your invoices if you too late they not pay, if you are booking the work taking usually 30 min to book each Sunday and they don't pay for that time either.I did asked them many times to change it to a week day but they never listen!
