Internal Recruitment Assistant

Role summary

Full time, Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.30pm

Start date: ASAP

Salary: Up to £25,000 per annum, dependent on experience

Who are we?

DA Languages Ltd was established 23 years ago by current CEO, Actar Arya. Now a private equity-backed business, our focus is on continuing to grow as a business and strengthen our working practices.

With a dedicated team and an ever-expanding customer base, we are considered one of the most trusted and reliable language service providers in our sector.

Our mission is simple – to enable our customers to deliver their goals through removing language barriers, by:

  • Creating processes and systems that enable us to deliver a best in class solution
  • Building employee knowledge, ensuring we better capture our clients’ needs and provide valued advice
  • Understanding the global changes that impact the sectors we serve
  • Ensuring that our customers audience receive their messaging exactly how it was intended

So what exactly do we do?

We offer language services to organisations within the public and private sector.

So what does that mean? Imagine if you couldn’t speak English but needed to go to a hospital appointment, you wouldn’t be able to access this service unless someone attends with you to interpret between you and the doctor.

That’s where we come in… the hospital would contact us and ask for an interpreter. We would then contact the right interpreter for the job and send them to that appointment.

We offer face to face interpreting, video interpreting and telephone interpreting for this scenario, so that appointments can be delivered on site or remotely.

As well as this, we offer translation, so if there is any written correspondence we will translate that into the right language too.

What’s in it for you?

  • Lots of career progression opportunities in a fast growing business
  • Flexible working post-training (4 days a week in office, 1 day at home)
  • 28 days annual leave (incl. bank holidays) & 1 day accrued for every year in position
  • Free breakfast, fresh fruit and tea & coffee provided daily
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Exclusive access to PerkBox, a discount site that offers retail discounts for stores such as ASOS, H&M, Adidas and freebies such as free drinks at Café Nero, learning perks, insurance savings and more
  • Social events and regular engagement activities, such as Christmas and Summer parties, in office events and competitions!
