From Iceland — City Hall Seeking Polish Speaker

City Hall Seeking Polish Speaker

Published December 30, 2011

Reykjavík city hall is currently looking to hire a Polish speaker to work as a councilor for immigrants.
According to the ad, the Human Rights Committee approved the hiring of a Polish-speaking councilor to work at the service desk for immigration services at Höfðatorg for a one-year trial period. The city will also be creating a special phone number for Polish immigrants seeking assistance and information on city services.
The city already offers a webpage of news and information in both Polish and English. The person hired would serve in a greater capacity to help the city’s Polish community.
Poles are the largest ethnic minority in Iceland, and number some 3,300 in the capital, a city of approximately 120,000.
To apply for the position, go to the city’s webpage of available jobs, look in the left-hand margin, and click “Pólskumælandi fulltrúi – Þjónustuver Höfðatorgi”. Then, you scroll down and press the “Sækja um starf” button to complete the application.
Those interested have until January 11 to apply.
