Job description:

Fluid Translation has grown quickly in recent years as a result of our increasing client base and our unerring focus on producing quality. Today we have a stimulating organization where no two days are alike.

We are now looking for a passionate project manager for our Swedish business who will further build on our innovative business model and operate our communication and translation agency together with the CEO and other coworkers.

As project manager, you will hold the primary responsibility for daily operations, project management and client relationships. You should be experienced in running your own business, including aspects such as invoicing, pricing, preparing offers, etc. You will maintain our CAT tools, translation memories and term bases, as well as recruit new suppliers and plan the daily business. You will also provide input into our marketing, sales and supplier issues, together with the CEO.

In this role, proactivity is a key ingredient. You have experience in the translation industry and some knowledge and interest in finance and/or accounting. You are an excellent communicator who can talk with executive management and understands company finance. Your problem solving skills are excellent and you have a particularly good organizational ability. You take initiative and work independently. You are highly skilled technically and can find innovative solutions using CAT tools and suppliers. The right candidate is an experienced project manager with flawless knowledge of Swedish.

As a person, you are independent, goal-oriented, social and focused on clients. You have a well-developed ability to think creatively, you enjoy the occasional high work tempo, you can work independently as well as in a team, and can lead and prioritize in stressful situations. We also think it’s important that you know how to have fun at work.

Working hours will shift from week to week as business needs change, and therefore we are looking for someone who also works as a translator, or who works as a freelancer in another industry alongside. Work can be performed anywhere within the EU including the UK.

Previous experience as a translator is merited, as well as experience in finance. The candidate must have Swedish or English as first language, and flawless speaking and writing skills in both languages. For the right candidate, there will be good opportunities for financial and personal development.

Applications accepted at [HIDDEN] before 30 September 2019.
