Positions available

Expression of interest

Become a NAATI

Some of NAATI’s interpreting tests are delivered by live role-play. We recruit role-players who are native speakers of their language, and who love acting, to play the role of someone who needs interpreting services during a test.

During an interpreting test, two role-players will engage in a conversation based on prompts provided by NAATI while a test candidate interprets for them.

We generally recruit role-players in NSW, Qld, Vic and WA as needed to meet testing demand. Role-players are employed on a casual basis.
