  • Support the overall design of the program and activities that participants take part in.
  • Help participants to get involved in campaigns and projects led by Cuttlefish, international network colleagues, and our campaign partners in Asia.

    • Good written and verbal communication skills in English, and preferably in Thai or another Asian language
    • Professional or educational experience in a Thailand university or a Thailand-based regional or international NGO
    • Experience undertaking a professional internship or fellowship program would be an advantage but not essential.

    SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES

    • Strong project management skills, with the ability to effectively manage multiple tasks and stakeholders
    • Excellent attention to detail in documenting and maintaining records of program activities
    • Excellent written and verbal communication skills for a variety of audiences

    • Able to work in a culturally diverse, remote-first environment with individuals and groups of various backgrounds and communication styles.

    WORKING ENVIRONMENT

    The role is based in Bangkok, Thailand. This is a home-based role, and we’re a remote-first team. However, we can offer access to a private office in a co-working space in central Bangkok. You may be required to attend in-person meetings in Bangkok and may occasionally travel internationally for workshops and meetings with colleagues and partners. We’re not able to offer a work permit or visa for this program, so you’ll need the right to live and work in Thailand.
