Join Our Team

Interpreting New Zealand trains and employs interpreters in over 70 languages.  Our interpreters work in person (onsite), by telephone, or by video. They may travel to different regions of New Zealand and handle calls from all parts of the country and overseas.

We recruit our interpreters from within the communities of New Zealand. The languages we seek are those spoken by refugees and new migrants to New Zealand.

Experienced interpreters with existing qualifications, desirably NAATI or Diploma in Sign Language Interpreting, are encouraged to contact us at any time of the year.
