ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM

Outward Mobility campaign, this is a British Council flagship programme aiming to see 80,000 UK students participate in academic study or work experience programmes in China between 2013 and 2020. It works with governments, academic institutions, industry and commerce in both China and the UK. The objective is to help create as wide a range of opportunities as possible, to help our young people develop and experience a far more global view.

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY

You will be expected to provide effective and efficient support on the following key programmes under China Education Business Strategic (SBU) during the internship period. You will support on Marketing & Promotion campaigns for Generation UK and help to manage the Generation UK Mailbox (support for UK students interested in coming to/already in China).

 

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT

Our corporate internship programme provides under-graduates and graduates with a unique opportunity to gain on-the-job experience to support their learning and formal studies as well as providing real professional experience and contacts for the future.  Interns will be placed in a business team of professional interest to them and will be required to deliver a specific piece of work.  This piece of work will provide the interns with good experience in delivering a meaningful project which has value to the British Council and will allow them insight into our business.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

You should have gained or be working towards a 2:1 degree and at least in your second year of University.  If you have already obtained your degree you must have graduated within the last two years (2017 onwards).

Together, we can do more.

ABOUT THE BRITISH COUNCIL

The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.

 

Valuing diversity is essential to the British Council’s work. We aim to abide by and promote equality legislation by following both the letter and the spirit of it to try and avoid unjustified discrimination, recognizing discrimination as a barrier to equality of opportunity, inclusion and human rights.

 

All staff worldwide is required to ensure their behavior is consistent with our policies.

 

The British Council is a full member of Keeping Children Safe (KCS) and has achieved level 1 child safe certification. We believe that all children have the right to be protected from all forms of abuse as set out in article 19, UNCRC, 1989 and that every child matters - everywhere in the world. In line with the British Council's Child Protection policy, any appointment is contingent on thorough checks including criminal record checks, in line with legal requirements.

 

KINDLY TAKE NOTE

While various measures have been put in place by the government to help curb pollution in China, there are still potential health issues associated with the poorer air quality. The British Council does its utmost to provide a working environment that minimises employees’ exposure to pollutants, however, anyone wishing to work in the cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou or Chongqing should be aware of the situation.
