Autumn Volunteering at GBCC
Role: GBCC is now seeking a small number of volunteers to work with us over the autumn period on projects to promote UK-China relations in various fields. While these are not formal internships, two or three volunteer positions are available for suitable candidates interested in supporting GBCC in our work. These roles offer the opportunity to gain experience of working at the Centre on various project and administration tasks, working closely with colleagues in China and the UK on legal reform projects, political dialogue and leadership training initiatives.
Typical daily tasks for volunteers include assisting with the design of new projects and writing applications for new projects; assisting with the delivery of current projects; organising training programmes; research for new projects; translating documents from Chinese into English, and English into Chinese; and assisting with various day to day administrative and logistical tasks and with updating the GBCC website.
Salary: No salary is payable as these positions are entirely voluntary, but reasonable daily travel and lunch expenses can be covered.
Location: Belgrave Square, London.
Requirements: Fluency in both Chinese and English with excellent research and writing skills; excellent communication skills and the ability to understand and explain complex issues to both UK and Chinese partners; efficient time management skills with ability to work to tight deadlines; ability to work in a team; competence in Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint; a knowledge of Chinese law and politics would be a definite advantage. Volunteers with a strong interest in legal and judicial reform, good governance and the development of civil society are preferred.
