Herefordshire Language Network

We have created the Herefordshire Language Network to provide an interpreting service using local linguists. This provides high quality, low cost face-to-face and telephone interpreting, as well as text translation to public, private and voluntary organisations. All members of the network are fully trained and stick to a code of conduct that ensures confidentiality.

To book, please call us on 01432 260216, email diversity@herefordshire.gov.uk or complete the booking form.

You will need to have a high standard of English as well as the required language, and you must be:

  • Professional, confident, reliable, organised and committed to providing excellent customer service
  • Live in Herefordshire or a neighbouring county, be eligible to work in the UK and aged over 18
  • Be willing to work on a freelance basis. This means you must register as self-employed and declare your earnings to HM Revenue & Customs
