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:

Climate Intern

Few issues demonstrate the complexity and the need for systemic change as climate change does. APC has launched a Climate Collective to bring philanthropists at different stages of climate action to learn and work together and with external partners, with the intention of building members’ capacity to collaborate on and co-fund efforts to drive impactful climate action in the region. 

Thus, we are currently looking for an intern to primarily support our climate philanthropy initiatives. Candidates will need to have a strong interest in climate action and a passion for addressing climate change especially in Asia.

Candidates will be expected to conduct desk research and writing, help strategise on how best to measure impact, to assist in analysing needs from our climate collective members. The candidate will also be involved, where possible, in primary research and outreach to members and the wider philanthropic community.

Part time candidates who can work with us for at least 6 months will also be considered. Full time candidates need to commit to at least 3 months. Candidates should ideally be able to commence from mid March 2022.

If you think you have what it takes and are interested to find out more, please send your CV and letter of motivation to [email protected].

Research Intern

The research 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 candidate will also be involved, where possible, in primary research and outreach to members and the wider philanthropic community.
