Seattle Department of Neighborhoods is seeking individuals to do part-time outreach work to underrepresented communities in Seattle’s neighborhoods to be a part of what’s known as Public Outreach and Engagement Liaisons (POELs). They require these individuals to be fluent in at least one of these languages: Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Korean and Khmer.

A POEL is expected to provide quality translations, fair and equitable facilitation in their native language to community groups, simultaneous interpretation, feedback and expertise on cultural concerns and barriers, and planning and execution of community workshops and events that parallel larger City-hosted meetings.

POELs are compensated independent contractors. The applicants must have extensive experience organizing and facilitating community meetings and must be fluent and able to interpret and translate in at least one other language. The positions are generally flexible with any type of schedule and include either daytime or evening hours as well as some weekends.

If interested, please send a resume or a short biography by Oct. 14 with two references to [email protected] or Seattle Department of Neighborhoods POEL Program, P.O. Box 94649, Seattle, WA 98124
