NNI organises Careers Evening for languages finalists and postgrads

On 31 March, from 5-6:30pm, the National Network for Interpreting hosted a delegation of high profile representatives from the UN, OECD, ILO, African Union Commission and EU language services. The visitors spoke to language students about the varied work opportunities their organisations hold for linguists.

The was organised in collaboration with the Centre for Translation Studies (CTS) at the University of Leeds. As well as offering careers talks (including an informal lunchtime session) to students from Leeds and neighbouring institutions, visitors benefited from CTS research staff members’ expertise, attending workshops to enhance their English skills and gain a deeper working knowledge of machine translation systems.
