Capita-TI on its knees begging their current 'linguists' to recruit new 'linguists'
Last week, on 08/05/13, Capita Translation and Interpreting sent me an email 'about an exciting opportunity to earn some additional income.'
As a Capita interpreter, you would think that Capita were going to give you another pay rise, from the recent May 1st payment benefit, but no, you were wrong...
This is what they sent me...
We are writing to tell you about an exciting opportunity to earn some additional income.
Our workloads are continuing to increase and we are always looking to recruit qualified interpreters. For a limited period we are introducing a recommend a friend scheme to reward you if you can successfully introduce us to appropriate qualified interpreters.
Should we sign up an interpreter referred by you, we will pay you £1 for every successful job they complete over the following 6 months (subject to a maximum payment of £200 per existing interpreter).
There is no limit to the number of interpreters you could refer to us, all they would need to do is register on Linguist Lounge and send an email confirming who has referred them to sign up with Capita Translation and Interpreting (including your LIN number. Only 1 LIN number can be attached to each recommendation).
If you know any qualified speakers of other languages who might be interested in working with Capita Translation and Interpreting on interpreting assignments, please e-mail the Linguist Relations Team [email address removed by RPSI Linguist Lounge] with the details.
For details of the minimum qualifications required of candidates suitable for assessment under the MoJ Framework Agreement, please see [web address removed by RPSI Linguist Lounge].
We hope you can make use of this opportunity to earn some additional income as we look forward to increased interpreting volumes this year.
