We are hiring: Freelance British Sign Language Interpreter

We are looking to recruit a freelance BSL interpreter to work with us on the Creative Futures Conference, over one day in Worcester on 7th July 2017.  


The Creative Futures Conference is supported by Arts Council England and is a day long free to attend event for young people and arts professionals. The day explores what creative career opportunities are available to young people, and how young people can have a say in the future of youth arts.  


Your role will include translating talks and workshops across the day, you will play an active role in creating a more inclusive event.   


As you will be working with young people, you must have a current enhanced DBS certificate (within 2 years). We can arrange a DBS check for you, but this would involve further travel to Worcester that would be unpaid.  


To apply please send us a CV, a short cover letter about why you'd like to be involved with the project and details of two references with whom you have worked with in a translation or in a setting where you have used your BSL skills to info@cagedarts.com by 5pm on the 30th May 2017.  


CAGED Arts is a living wage employer, and have thus calculated our fees based around the NUBSLI union fees for freelance interpreters, £250 for one day, plus travel. As an organisation we are committed to ensuring fair and transparent pay, and welcome any discussions or queries about how we have reached our rates.  


We are committed to working with emerging practitioners, and those who have experienced barriers to entry in the arts.
