Activities include monitoring and evaluation of project data, providing essential logistic and administrative support, amongst others.

WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?
Because you will be joining 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 work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of English language, arts and culture, education and civil society. Brazil is an important trading and cultural partner for the United Kingdom, as the largest country in Latin America with a population of 210 million. Developing Inclusive and Creative Economies is a British Council pilot programme that takes a holistic approach to addressing entrenched issues of economic and social exclusion.

Currently in its pilot phase, DICE takes an 'ecosystem' approach to nurturing economic inclusion, with a focus on women and girls, young people, disabled people and other often excluded groups. In Brazil, the programme, about to enter its third year, has focused on training social and creative entrepreneurs in peripheral communities, linking UK and Brazilian intermediary organisations, and has instigated a programme of leadership development for creative hubs.

WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE 
You should have proven experience organising and promoting events; liaising with ad agencies for creation and production of marketing materials; writing texts in both Portuguese and English and working with information from and for stakeholders, clients and suppliers.  You must also have the ability to operate in Portuguese and English (both written and spoken) at IELTS level 6.0 / CEFR B2 or equivalent. Non-native speakers of Portuguese may be required to take a Portuguese language test.
