India Intern Coordinator

Coordinator required for UK training, India orientation week, facilitation and on-site support across India Monthly Per Diem Granted. £500 towards flights and visa costs.
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Intern Coordinator to join our 2015 India Team. Development in Action (DiA) is a UK registered charity (No. 1149279) which exists to promote global citizenship by improving understanding and encouraging engagement in development issues amongst young people in the UK. For over 20 years DiA have connected young people in the UK with the issues affecting them and their fellow citizens around the world through the India Placement Scheme.
The position is for a fixed duration with flexible working hours. The Intern Coordinator will be expected to provide support to interns during structured visits and also be contactable at all times. The successful applicant will ideally need to be located within the UK for recruitment and training and subsequently be able to travel to India to coordinate a team of passionate young interns whilst on placement. You will support the delivery of pre-departure intern training, plan and deliver an in-country orientation week, coordinate volunteer support during their placements and liaise with DiA’s partner organisations. This summer we will be sending a cohort of interns to India for two months from July-August, and another group for six months starting in September.

Integral to this is designing and delivering Orientation Weeks to support interns' preparation for their placement role.

  • Relationship management: To maintain the link between partner organisations in India and the DiA Committee in the UK. As DiA's eyes and ears in India, this involves representing the wider DiA committee and trustees in a responsible and professional manner, dealing with challenging situations that may arise effectively and sensitively.
  • Digital Communications: To assist the UK committee in sharing and promoting volunteer and partner organisations through social media, photography and collating volunteer and/or India specific news.
