  • cultural liaison officer: help to identify the needs of individuals and families from different cultural groups, and ensure there are resources and support programs to meet those needs
  • interpreter/translator: work with groups, individuals and organisations to convert, in written and spoken language, one language into another language
  • tutor: provide one-on-one academic assistance to students
  • multilingual health professional: communicate with patients of diverse language backgrounds
  • multilingual teacher: teach a language or inspire children to become multilingual by setting an example as their classroom teacher
