Job Description

British Red Cross volunteers help thousands of refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants every year enabling people to draw upon their own strengths to withstand crisis and rebuild their lives. Our Interpreter volunteers provide an essential communication link between people who use our service and the volunteers and staff supporting them. Many do not speak English as their first language and rely on high quality and confidential interpretation and translation to relay their personal information. For many people, this can be a difficult and distressing process. We help them to find a way forward and help them start their lives in a new country. We are currently looking for people who can interpret Farsi and are able to commit to minimum 12 months, volunteering for 7 hours a week flexible hours between Monday-Friday (9am-5pm). You will be able to speak a good level of English to allow accurate translation. You will be volunteering from home and will need to have your own phone and have access to check emails on a regular basis. If you live locally, you may be asked to attend drop in sessions at the British Red Cross Office once in a while. We would be particularly interested to hear from you if you have experience of being a refugee or asylum seeker. **Health and Safety Statement** We take an individual approach to ensuring your safety. We may ask you to complete a simple risk assessment. We will also have a conversation with you to discuss any restrictions that may still be in place in your region and identify any adjustments you may need.
