The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Some experience managing teams or projects would be an advantage. The work
is exciting, with plenty of opportunity to use linguistics. We have
several current Arabic projects and the successful candidate would be
working with other Arabic specialists as well as specialists in other
languages and disciplines. Much of our work is cutting edge so the
candidate should be able to apply their linguistics to any language, be
flexible, a team player and able to make the jump to the commercial world.
The position is available now.
