Farewell Alfonso and Jessica!

This has been a month full of changes at The Translation Service. On Friday 18 July our receptionist Jessica left us for another role within DIA (she has not gone too far luckily!). Jessica did a great job here and will be definitely missed. The Translation Service team wish Jessica the best of luck in her new role!

And then it’s my turn (Alfonso) to say goodbye. Wednesday 23 July will be my last day with The Translation Service. Unlike Jessica, I am not going to stick around so I guess that in my case this is a proper goodbye. I just want to say thanks to all of you because your efforts and your great work have made my job easier. I will miss working with all of you.

New staff members

Of course, with two members of the staff leaving we need to recruit their replacements! The recruitment process is nearly over and there are a few candidates to choose from. We will introduce the new administrators to you in the next issue (and of course, we will also feature them in the Proust Questionnaire!)

French holiday for Stefan

Stefan will be away from Monday 28 July until Friday 5 September. Stefan finally has the chance to spend some time in Southern France, where he is originally from. He will also celebrate his wedding with a reception at his family home with all the people who could not attend the wedding in New Zealand, back in January. Stefan will be working remotely from Monday 18 August until his return to New Zealand in September.

Shieva is back!!

And finally, someone who is coming back!! You may remember that over the last 9 months Shieva has been away on a secondment within DIA and after that spent time travelling in Iran and Europe. The good news is that Shieva will return on Monday 4 August! We all look forward to having her back and to hearing some of her travel experiences! We are pretty sure that she will be happy to share these experiences with you in the next issues.

Do you have any news that you would like to share with us? Contact us and we will publish it in the next issue!
