A RECRUITMENT CAMPAIGN for 72 Irish language translator posts in European Union institutions has been launched.

The posts will be based in Brussels and Luxembourg.

The employment opportunities were announced at an event in the Chester Beatty Library in Dublin.

Speaking at the event yesterday, Minister of State for the Irish language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands Joe McHugh said translators play “a central role in everything the EU institutions do”.

“The translation services have a key role to play in strengthening communications and improving the level of understanding amongst our citizens about the EU’s role in our daily lives,” he said.

McHugh added that the roles are an “excellent opportunity” for people who have an interest in a career in translation and for those who have “a high standard of Irish and would like to undertake a new career abroad”.

The deadline for applications is 4 September and more information can be read here.
