[2] CLD Consultants seeks Chinese national with legal background for program officer position in Beijing

CLD Consultants is a company that does projects in the realm of rule-of-law building. I've done some work with them and think they're a very good outfit. Here's the job announcement they have asked me to post. For various reasons, the font type and size is inconsistent below; that's my fault, not the company's. I just don't have time to fix it.

IMMEDIATE JOB OPENING—PROGRAM OFFICER (项目官员)

中律原咨询(北京)有限公司

CLD Consultants (Beijing)

 

 

 

 

 

Introduction to the Company and the Job

                        

            中律原咨询(北京)有限公司, (English name: CLD Consultants (Beijing)), is a small Chinese firm that was founded specifically to support social development projects and international cooperation programs in China.  中律原provides consulting services and technical assistance to Chinese organizations, foreign companies, international donors and foreign non-profit organizations.  The Company’s consulting services and projects focus on the areas of: legal system development, legal reform, public interest, women’s issues, governance, education reform, and capacity-building of non-governmental organizations.  Since 2003, 中律原has had a six-person office in Beijing.

 

The Company is seeking applications from Chinese nationals for one of its Program Officer (项目官员) positions.  This position is based in Beijing.  The Program Officer, working with the Company’s senior staff and other Program Officers, will be responsible for developing and managing projects, primarily in the areas of legal system development, access to justice and governance.  The Program Officer will also assist the Company’s senior staff in providing consulting advice and technical support to Chinese and foreign organizations.  A detailed description of the Program Officer position is provided below.

 

It is important to note that中律原is not a typical business company.  Much of our work involves international exchanges and non-profit cooperation programs between Chinese and foreign organizations.  For example, the Company advises Chinese and foreign organizations on the design of non-profit projects; advises Chinese organizations on finding suitable foreign partners; helps Chinese organizations raise funding for non-profit projects; runs training programs for Chinese officials and lawyers; supports research on Chinese cutting-edge legal and social issues; assists in organizing international conferences; and does program evaluations.  Therefore, the Program Officer should be deeply interested in Chinese legal reform and social development.  Furthermore, he/she should be interested in working with foreign experts and organizations.  People who are looking for business experience or who want to practice law should not apply.   

 

As we are a small, unusual company, we are looking for staff who are highly motivated and who enjoy working as part of a small team.  Furthermore, excellent English—both spoken and written—is required.
