Job Number: 35277 Department: Civil Service Bureau Division/Section/Unit: Official Languages Division Job Title: Simultaneous Interpreter Salary: Master Pay Scale Point 32 ($54,265) per month to Master Pay Scale Point 44 ($86,440) per month Entry Requirements: Applicants should:
(a) have a bachelor’s degree from a university in Hong Kong, or equivalent [Note 1];
(b) have attained ‘Level 2’ results in the two language papers (Use of Chinese and Use of English) in the Common Recruitment Examination (CRE) [Notes 2 to 5];
(c) have seven years’ post-qualification experience;
(d) be fully proficient in Chinese (Cantonese and preferably Putonghua) and English; and
(e) be able to interpret simultaneously with precision and at a great speed from English into Cantonese and preferably Putonghua, and vice versa.
(Remarks: Applicants will be required to pass the Simultaneous Interpretation Test (SIT) [details given in the paragraph below].)
Simultaneous Interpretation Test (SIT): The SIT consists of two phases and will be conducted in Hong Kong. Eligible applicants will be invited to sit for Phase 1 of SIT, which is tentatively scheduled for March 2015. Phase 1 of SIT consists of simultaneous interpretation aided with text. Applicants who have passed Phase 1 will be invited to attend a briefing/practice session for Phase 2 of SIT in late April 2015. Phase 2 of SIT, which consists of three parts, namely simultaneous interpretation of ad-lib discussions and speeches and speech giving, is tentatively scheduled for early May 2015. During Phase 2 of SIT, applicants must pass each part of the test before they could proceed to the next part. Applicants are required to pass the SIT before they will be further considered for selection interviews. Those who have failed in any phase of SIT will be notified in writing around eight weeks after the test. As it takes time to process all applications, an invitation to the SIT does not imply that applicants’ qualifications meet the entry requirements.
Note: (1) Holders of academic qualifications other than those obtained from Hong Kong institutions/Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority may also apply but their qualifications will be subject to assessments on equivalence with the required entry qualifications. They should submit copies of their degree certificates and official transcripts by post or by fax to the address below. Copies of local qualification documents are not required at this stage of application.
(2) Results in the Use of Chinese (UC) and Use of English (UE) papers of the CRE are classified as ‘Level 2’, ‘Level 1’ or ‘Fail’, with ‘Level 2’ being the highest. ‘Level 2’ and ‘Level 1’ results of the two language papers obtained from December 2006 onwards are of permanent validity. Applicants with valid requisite results in the UC and UE papers obtained in previous CREs are deemed to have met the entry requirement in item (b).
(3) Persons who do not possess the requisite CRE results, or equivalent, but have applied to sit for the coming CRE to be held on 6 December 2014 in Beijing and six overseas cities, namely London, San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Vancouver and Sydney, may also apply. Their applications will be processed subject to their obtaining the requisite CRE results in the aforesaid examination.
(4) Grade ‘C’ or above in Chinese Language and Culture or Chinese Language and Literature of the Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKALE) is accepted as equivalent to ‘Level 2’ in the UC paper of the CRE. Grade ‘C’ or above in Use of English of the HKALE or English Language of the General Certificate of Education (Advanced Level) is accepted as equivalent to ‘Level 2’ in the UE paper of the CRE.
(5) An overall band of 6.5 or above with no subtest score below band 6 obtained in the same sitting in the Academic Module of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) within the two-year validity period of the test is accepted as equivalent to ‘Level 2’ in the UE paper of the CRE. The IELTS test result must be valid on any date during the application period (i.e. from 5 December 2014 to 18 December 2014).
Duties: Simultaneous Interpreters are required to provide simultaneous interpretation service at meetings of the Legislative Council, District Councils and other Government boards and committees and at press conferences, conferences, functions and visits; to assist in administering and co-ordinating activities related to the provision of simultaneous interpretation service; to compile glossaries for reference; and to assist in the recruitment exercises and training of simultaneous interpreters. Officers already proficient in Putonghua will in due course be required to provide Putonghua interpretation. Officers not yet proficient in Putonghua will be required to provide Putonghua simultaneous interpretation service after training. (Note: Simultaneous Interpreters are required to work irregular hours and/or outside Hong Kong, wear headphones and operate console while working.) Terms of Appointment: A new appointee to the Simultaneous Interpreter rank will normally be appointed on civil service probationary terms for three years. Upon passage of probation bar, the officer will be considered for appointment on the prevailing permanent terms. General Notes: (a) Candidates must be permanent residents of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region at the time of appointment.
(b) As an Equal Opportunities Employer, the Government is committed to eliminating discrimination in employment. The vacancy advertised is open to all applicants meeting the basic requirement irrespective of their disability, sex, marital status, pregnancy, age, family status, sexual orientation and race.
(c) Civil service vacancies are posts on the civil service establishment. Candidates selected for these vacancies will be appointed on civil service terms of appointment and conditions of service and will become civil servants on appointment.
(d) The entry pay, terms of appointment and conditions of service to be offered are subject to the provisions prevailing at the time the offer of appointment is made.
(e) The information on the monthly salary and maximum pay point is for reference only and may be subject to changes.
(f) Fringe benefits include paid leave, medical and dental benefits, and where appropriate, assistance in housing.
(g) Where a large number of candidates meet the specified entry requirements, shortlisting criteria may be devised to select the better qualified candidates for further processing. In these circumstances, only shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend the SIT and interview.
(h) It is Government policy to place people with a disability in appropriate jobs wherever possible. If a disabled applicant meets the entry requirements (including a pass in the SIT), he/she will be invited to attend the selection interview without being subject to further shortlisting.
(i) For the purpose of heightening public awareness of the Basic Law (BL) and promoting a culture of learning of the BL in the community, assessment of BL knowledge will be included in the recruitment for all civil service jobs. Under the prevailing practice, results of the BL test for degree/professional grades will constitute an appropriate weighting in a candidate’s overall assessment. However, the result will not affect a candidate’s eligibility for applying for the above post. As a general principle, the main consideration for suitability for appointment remains a candidate’s qualification, experience and calibre.
(j) To ensure timely submission of on-line applications, candidates are strongly advised to complete their on-line application as early as possible in order to avoid any last-minute rush of applications which may overload the on-line system.
