Internships

To strengthen our team, the Asia Philanthropy Circle is seeking qualified interns throughout the year.  The duration of the internship is minimum three months (negotiable during winter term holidays) and not more than one year but the terms of employment are open for discussion.  We expect exceptional candidates with an equally high commitment, the willingness and ability to proactively seek ways to contribute value to the growing organisation as well as to continuously learn and develop, and a service-oriented mindset.  The candidate must be diligent, structured and possess a detail-focused work style, secure written and oral communication skills with senior stakeholders and fluent business English.  We have the following positions available to support on our full range of projects and membership programmes:

Philanthropy Ecosystem Building Intern

One of APC’s mandates is to help build better awareness, understanding of philanthropy in Asia, and also to build the necessary infrastructure that will enable the effective flow of resources and optimised impact. To do this, we produce Asian-focused in-house research, which are used to guide philanthropists and others in the sector.

This position requires candidates who are passionate about social and political issues, the philanthropy sector, and are interested in and good at desk research and writing. The intern will also be involved, where possible, in primary research and outreach to members and the wider philanthropic community; and directly in the conceptualisation, development of our projects in the region.

Impact Intern

Our programmes and projects are the most successful if we are able to document them and measure their impact accordingly. By doing so, we can not only understand their effectiveness and to make adjustments where necessary, but also share our practices and models with others for replication and scaling. Candidates should have a strategic and analytical mind-set; able to conceptualise and apply measurement frameworks.

On top of the above scope, interns/associates will also be required to assist in other day-to-day operations of the organisation and helping with our projects. Associates will also be assigned tasks and projects based on their areas of interest and expertise and APC is keen to develop their talent and skillsets in collaborative consultation.
