Working at Comms Multilingual

So, who are Comms Multilingual? AKA “Never heard of them…”

Comms is a full service translation and localisation company specialising in complex, multi-language translation projects.

We’re based in Epsom (Surrey), which is about 30 minutes from central London by train on the way to Guildford (South West Trains, not just Southern, so don’t worry about constant strike action). We’ve been expanding gradually over the last few years and recently moved to new offices to support further expansion, as our client list keeps growing and the requests keep coming!

Our main business sectors are assessments, exams, certifications, training and development, as well as life sciences, marketing, telecommunications and information technology.

We’re the sort of company where you won’t be boxed in to one process all day – you’ll be responsible for projects from start to finish, working on quoting, project setup, quality assurance and maintaining client relationships.

Being a small company, we don’t offer all the perks like free childcare, healthcare, animal care, hot air balloon rides or gym membership, but there’s a gym just across the road and a Pets at Home below our office, so you still have options.
