BSL/English Interpreter - term-time only (33 weeks per year)
Location: City Lit Keeley Street Covent Garden, London. The post holder will be required to work at other locations in London as required.
Pay: Term time only (33 weeks per academic year).
FTE £32,709 - £35,407 (RSLI)
FTE £29,464 - £32,709 (TSLI)
All salaries are pro rata per annum inclusive of London Weighting.
We will normally appoint at the bottom of the appropriate salary scale unless the successful candidate has relevant experience relating to the role.
Days of Work: 35 hours per week (5 days: Monday - Friday) term time only (22 weeks remaining for January - June 2019). Some evening and weekend work may be required on occasions, as agreed with line manager. However, we would be interested in seeing any candidates who may not be able to work 5 days per week but feel they are suitable for the role.
Contact time includes travel between non-City Lit sites at the beginning and end of each day if this significantly exceeds the normal journey time from home to Keeley Street.
The location, hours and duties of the post may be varied according to the needs of the service; Interpreters will therefore need to be flexible and be prepared to travel mainly across London and the surrounding area, although from time to time they may be required to travel further afield.
