CURRENT GPAN OPENINGS

Oral Interpreters

We’re hiring accuracy professionals around the world!

Members of the GPAN are paid per piece and are typically given 24-48 hour deadlines. GPAN members specify the amount of work they are looking for, and work closely with Global Press’ assignment editor, lead editors and reporters during the editorial process. All GPAN work can be done remotely. GPAN members based in Washington D.C. or a Global Press bureau location are welcome (and encouraged!) to work with the local team.

Think you have what it takes?

Global Press is a diverse and thriving international media organization that seeks out team members who:

• Are equally committed to journalistic tradition and journalistic innovation

• Employ discipline, generosity and humor in their daily work

• Are willing to challenge the 24-hour news cycle and stereotypical definitions of international news value

• Believe in the power of local women journalists to write and report undiscovered, high-quality human stories to change our world

• Thrive in a collaborative environment where team members can be honest with one another and always aim to be better than they were yesterday

Global Press is recruiting freelance oral interpreters to join the network. Interpreters will assist with phone calls and meetings between members of the team. We need an expert interpreter to help interface between English and the languages of our local reporters. Oral interpreters are paid per 15 minute increments.

Global Press is currently recruiting for the following languages:

• French-English

• Sinhala-English

• Spanish-English

• Tamil-English
