San Diego Superior Court is seeking qualified candidates for the position of Interpreter (Arabic Option).  The eligible list resulting from this recruitment may be used to fill current and future Interpreter (Arabic Option) vacancies as they occur.
There is currently one (1) full-time position open for the Interpreter (Arabic Option) in the "All Court Floater" pool.  Interpreters in "All Court Floater" assignments must be available to work and provide coverage in all Superior Court locations:  the Central Division, with four courthouses in downtown San Diego, as well as the Juvenile Court and Kearny Mesa Branch in the Kearny Mesa area; the North County Division in Vista; the East County Division in El Cajon; and the South County Division in Chula Vista.
Online applications will be accepted on a continuous basis.  However, this recruitment may close at any time without notice.  Paper application forms will not be accepted.
Interpreters provide simultaneous and consecutive interpreting services during court proceedings as parties and witnesses testify, or when attorneys present oral arguments and motions.  Interpreters may also assist court staff with interpreting in a customer service setting, and may provide sight translations, as needed.  Interpreters work in a courtroom or office setting and have significant contact with judges, court staff, attorneys, and the public.
$73,070.40 - $82,326.40 annually.  The starting hourly salary for Interpreters is currently set at $36.21 (approximately $75,316.80 annually).
Interested individuals must possess at the time of application a valid and current certification as a "Certified Court Interpreter" in Arabic, as issued by the Judicial Council of California.  Applicants who do not have the Judicial Council interpreter certification will not be considered.
