Not sure where to post this.

We as an agency need help to find somebody to act as a point of contact with clients and translators.

As far as I understood, they are looking for project manager(s)?

OP, you may post it as a job on job boards? You may word the job title exactly the way you did here. Then describe what you are looking for in the job description box. Hope this helps.

Right ... Mar 7

... I read the thread more carefully than the title. So they're an agency looking for in-house people.

I guess translation agency PMs can work both in house and remotely, but I guess in-house would be more common.

Where in Proz can you post a job looking for PMs? Mar 7

The options the system offers are for translation/interpretation/editing jobs selecting the pair(s) of languages.
We think it makes sense trying to find translators to work as PMs in a translation agency.

Often, the job will take less than an hour a day and can actually be done from a smartphone.

I don't know how they were posted, but they definitely were. Something like "Looking for a PM that would work for our agency from home, on full time or part time basis". Perhaps submit a support ticket asking how this kind of jobs are posted.
