Development & Outreach Division Intern
Application Deadline: April 1x, xxx1
The Development and Outreach Department of (COMPANY NAME) (HRW) is seeking student interns for spring - summer 2021 in the Tokyo office. Ideally, the interns will be available part-time from April- October 2021. The interns will focus on projects surrounding fundraising and event management.
Due to COVID-19, many of our offices remain closed or are open at a limited capacity. HRW prioritizes the safety of our interns. In locations that have eased office restrictions and are open at a limited capacity, interns are not expected to report to the office and remote arrangements will remain an option for the foreseeable future. However, interns may have the option of reporting to an office on a voluntary basis in accordance with HRW's COVID-19 policies.
The internship will mainly focus on fundraising, database management, and event planning for annual charity dinner and other donor events. The interns will build skills in conducting prospect research, crafting marketing materials, managing database and coordinating logistics of a large-scale event. The interns may have opportunities to attend in-house trainings, briefings and donor events as well as network with other HRW interns, volunteers, and employees. Other projects may be assigned as they arise and match the student's interests and abilities.
Interns must be undergraduate students for the duration of the internship term. Students with relevant coursework in human rights are encouraged to apply. Applicants should be well-organized, self-motivated and reliable, with strong attention to detail. A demonstrated strong interest in human rights is highly desirable. Computer skills (Microsoft Office, Excel, internet applications) and internet research skills are essential. Advanced level proficiency in Japanese and English (both in writing and speaking) is highly desirable.
Applicants who are offered an internship must possess valid work authorization in Japan for the duration of the internship.
Compensation: Interns will receive a gross stipend of gross 800 yen per day they are in the office for lunch expenses in accordance with HRW policy and the intern. Interns will be reimbursed up to 2000 yen per day they are in the office for transportation. Students are often able to arrange academic credit, as HRW internships may offer direct exposure to the workings of an international human rights organization, close supervision by the HRW staff, and interaction with other international organizations and foreign and domestic government officials. Students should check with their individual academic institutions for requirements.
