Job Announcement
Consultant at Zeal (学而), Hangzhou or Ningbo, China

Coaches are like editors, another slippery invention. Consider Maxwell Perkins, the great Scribner’s editor, who found, nurtured, and published such writers as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, and Thomas Wolfe. “Perkins has the intangible faculty of giving you confidence in yourself and the book you are writing,” one of his writers said in a New Yorker Profile from 1944. “He never tells you what to do,” another writer said. “Instead, he suggests to you, in an extraordinarily inarticulate fashion, what you want to do yourself.”-Atul Gawande

JOB DESCRIPTION
  • Zeal is a social entrepreneurial venture based in China that offers consulting and mentoring for Chinese students applying to top US universities.
  • Our mission is to provide opportunities—and they are rare in China—for Chinese students to meet and directly learn from outstanding young leaders.
  • All of our services are premised upon a commitment to—and competitive advantage derived from—creating mentorship solutions. Such mentoring focuses on soft skills development, including critical thinking, storytelling, interpersonal dynamics, and body language, among others.
  • We do more than traditional education consulting. Our Consultants have sponsored local art exhibitions, been on Ningbo TV as our very own “V.O.I.C.E.” English speech judge, and helped lead a self-discovery trip in Western China — all just in their first year.

JOB SUMMARY
Based in Hangzhou or Ningbo, the Consultant will assume the overarching roles of mentor and business developer. As a mentor, the Consultant will counsel Chinese high school students as they prepare to study abroad. Business development will include marketing events, direct sales, follow-up negotiation, and strategic partnership cultivation. As they gain experience, the Consultant will gain the opportunity to conduct direct sales with Chinese parents, as well as build strategic partnerships with outside organizations.

DUTIES & RESPONSIBILTIES
  • Mentoring Chinese students before, during, and after their college applications process through various capacity-building projects such as school selection, seminar discussion, essay coaching, extracurricular development and interview training.
  • Capitalizing on their own expertise to design and teach new soft skills curricula.
  • Training new Consultants, managing Consultants’ work with students, and undertaking quality assurance throughout project execution (starting in 2nd year).
  • Innovating new projects to bring our students further opportunities for growth.

KNOWLEDGE, TRAINING & SKILLS
  • Graduated from a US liberal arts or national university.
  • Strong communication, writing, and editorial skills in English.
  • Experience mentoring, teaching, and leading young students.
  • Fluency in Mandarin Chinese. (Highly desired but not required.)

BENEFITS
  • Compensation is competitive. Includes base salary, per client commission, projects fees, living accommodations and insurance stipend, and annual international travel. Overall compensation depends on ability, experience, and duration and level of commitment.
  • We provide a Z Work Visa to qualified employees.
  • You will be part of an expanding business filled with young and intelligent people who are constantly creating new educational opportunities for Chinese students including but not limited to: intensive English debate camp, factory tours to New Century and Ford, ethnographic research projects in civil rights, and interning with US start-up ventures.
  • The combination of travel, public speaking, marketing events, and sales negotiation with potential clients will truly take your business Chinese to the next level. You would also get to see the middle of the consumer bell curve, instead of just highly informed and rational clients in major Chinese cities. For example, you would begin to understand how selling services in Hangzhou takes a nuanced and nonlinear “emotional vocabulary”, whereas selling in Beijing often requires traditional anticipatory logic.
  • In part enabled by the unique skill set and high caliber network they acquire with us during a relatively short time period, past Zeal Consultants have gone on to start businesses in China, management consulting, Harvard and Georgetown Law, a Supreme Court internship, a documentary filmmaking career, working in US university Admissions Offices, medical school, and also to become teachers in the US and China.

Summary of Program/Position


The future of Servite’s formation and leadership programs will include an international dimension thanks to Servite alumnus, Joseph Sanberg, a member of the Class of 1997. The mission of the program is to form future international leaders by introducing students to critical foreign languages, guiding students on enriching immersion experiences abroad, and providing specialized instruction focused on leadership, formation, and personal cultivation informed by the charisms of the Servite Order.

“My experience at Servite made me a better leader,” said Sanberg. “I hope the International Leadership Program will do the same for current and future Friars.”

To begin the program, Mr. Sanberg has elected for an initial focus on China. Because of its rich culture and history, recent economic rise, increasingly important role in international affairs, and large population, China is an excellent source and focus of study for students interested in international education, careers and leadership. This program will provide students with opportunities to expand the parameters of traditional education by allowing them to develop international perspectives at a young age, enhancing their understanding of the world and better preparing them for leadership positions at institutions of higher education and future careers and vocations.

“This donation is the first of its kind for our school,“ Servite president, Pete Bowen said. “Joe not only initiated and helped develop this program to benefit our students, he also provided the funding for a multi-year program.” Sanberg made a commitment to fund the International Leadership Program for a minimum of six years and pledged $1.2 million towards the program costs.

In order to participate in the program, students must apply for admission in the spring of their freshman year with the prerequisite that students be currently enrolled in Mandarin I. Upon successful admission to the program, students will be required to complete three years of Mandarin classes (freshman to junior years) and two years of the International Leadership Seminar (sophomore and junior years), as well as participate in two consecutive summer immersion trips to China. The entire program, classes and travel abroad, is fully funded by Mr. Sanberg, and is therefore, available at no cost to interested and eligible students.

Ford Foundation Program, Officer, Economic Opportunity and Public Policy


Organization: Ford Foundation
Position: Program Officer, Economic Opportunity and Public Policy
Location: Beijing, China
Posted: 4/6/2015
Deadline: 5/21/2015 more >
Summary Description

The Ford Foundation’s office in China seeks a dynamic, innovative Program Officer to help drive and shape the foundation’s work in the critical area of economic opportunity and public policy. The Program Officer will support the strategy of the China Office and the broader social justice goals of the Ford Foundation.

BACKGROUND:
Addressing inequality is a key focus of the Ford Foundation globally and in China. The broad overarching goals of the office are to: reduce socioeconomic inequalities that are manifested in the process of rural-urban integration; improve economic opportunities particularly for migrants and those in the informal labor sector; advance educational outcomes; and reduce inequality related to gender and sexuality. The Foundation strives to achieve this by working with academics and policy makers, community-based organizations, the public and private sector and the donor community, including the growing number of philanthropists and foundation sector leaders in China. The Foundation’s Economic Opportunity and Public Policy work plays a key role in addressing these broader goals.

The rural-urban divide is the central locus of economic, political, and cultural/social inequality in China. Three interrelated systems – the household registration, land tenure and fiscal systems – have worked together to institutionalize inequality between rural and urban populations over six decades. This inequality was exacerbated by rapid transition to a market economy—a process that emphasized GDP growth, discounted externalities, and promoted uneven development across groups and parts of the country. Despite physical mobility through rural-urban migration, social mobility previously possible through education has decreased as access to quality education has become more limited. Although wages for some rural-urban migrants (“migrants”) have reached parity with urban peers, migrants are disproportionately represented in the informal economy, and they are excluded from most social protection benefits (health insurance, pensions, etc.) in urban areas. Reform of the three underlying systems is underway, and while the high-level policy direction is clear, the process of addressing an urban bias institutionalized over the past 60 years will be long and challenging, with significant risks for farmers, migrants, women, the children of migrants, and other marginalized groups. A weak legal system, lack of transparency and accountability at both state and non-state levels, and limited political voice contribute to persistent inequality.

The Ford Foundation’s China Office focuses its work on the People’s Republic of China and programs in China to address the above challenges from a Chinese perspective, while also bearing in mind the importance of linking local challenges and interventions to global trends and strategies. Given China’s increasing influence in the world, the Foundation will also seek to program globally on issues related to China’s global economic and political role.

CRITERIA FOR SUCCESS:
  • A strong commitment to economic opportunity and social justice in China and globally;
  • Exemplary critical thinking skills for analyzing the field and identifying strategic opportunities;
  • Expertise in policy analysis and design as well as institutional change (e.g., historically informed knowledge of how land tenure, labor market policies and institutions, social protection policies or other institutions have evolved over the long run, to reflect new social, economic and political realities);
  • A practical understanding of how markets work and how they fail, as well as, knowledge, experience and willingness to challenge conventional thinking around development paradigms, economic policy and economic opportunity in the region and globally;
  • Excellent analytical, conceptual and judgment skills;
  • Outstanding verbal and written skills in English;
  • Strong verbal and reading skills in Mandarin Chinese;
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to effectively engage with government, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, academic and research institutions, funding agencies and other institutional partners;
  • Exceptional collaboration skills and a demonstrated record of successful team work;
  • Skills in convening and facilitating collaborative work towards achieving social change;
  • Grant-making experience and/or knowledge of the economic sector within civil society, government, academia or philanthropy in China;
  • A commitment to fiscal stewardship in grant making and administrative activities; and
  • Personal qualities of flexibility and adaptability, humility, self-awareness, self-reflection and a sense of humor.


Responsibilities Include:
Reporting to the China Representative and working with a multidisciplinary team of Program Officers, the Economic Opportunity and Public Policy Program Officer will be responsible for developing and implementing a strategy that accelerates social protection gains, promotes sustainable livelihoods and inclusive economic growth, and advances economic fairness and security within the broader context described above to address the inequalities caused by the rural/urban divide. The Program Officer will develop and implement a strategy that reflects the complementary roles of government, civil society, social and labor movements and the corporate sector, with a view to fostering dialogue and collaboration. In addition, the work needs to reflect the global footprint and reach of the Foundation and China’s growing economic impact around the world. The Program Officer will:
  • Develop an integrated, holistic program strategy identifying key leverage points and opportunities for impact;
  • Formulate grant making plans to implement the program strategy;
  • Solicit, review, and respond to grant proposals;
  • Prepare recommendations for Foundation funding;
  • Work with other Foundation staff to monitor grants and promote effective communication of results;

  • Provide intellectual leadership in the field of economic opportunity and public policy reform in China;
  • Work closely with the Representative and other Program Officers in the China Office to develop and implement an integrated Office strategy;
  • Work closely with Program Officers and Communications staff throughout the Foundation whose work relates to the central mission of the portfolio, including colleagues in other offices to advance the Foundation’s worldwide agenda and goals in economic opportunity and policy reform;
  • Collaborate broadly with the economic justice sector, governance sector, academics, scholars and practitioners, government agencies, non-governmental organizations and other donors to build creative and lasting multi sector networks and collaborative environments

Shanghai Qibao was founded in 1947, became a key high school in 1961, and has operated a network of twelve schools since 2005. The Dwight School originated in 1872, has been an authorized IB World School since 1975, and currently has international schools located in New York, London, Vancouver, and Seoul.

The Shanghai Qibao Dwight High School curriculum integrates an international perspective with four pillars of Chinese compulsory education, Chinese Language, History, Math, Geography and Politics. Students will have the option to participate in the Shanghai academic proficiency exams. As is the case with all global Dwight Schools, the school has also applied for candidacy to implement the IBDP curriculum. Graduating students are eligible to receive a Dwight School diploma, a Shanghai Qibao High School joint diploma and an IB diploma (pending candidacy and authorization). Students will be able to apply for domestic Chinese Universities as well as having the option to seek higher education abroad.

In its first year, the school aims to matriculate 100 students from Shanghai and 50 students from other areas of China for the Grade 10 class. International students will also be encouraged to apply. In future years when the school is at full capacity, Shanghai Qibao Dwight High School intends to enroll approximately 1,000 students across all three grade levels. Staff will include highly qualified Chinese and international teachers, and the school will be jointly managed by Shanghai Qibao High School and Dwight School administrators so the school can benefit from the extensive resources and expertise of both partners.

The school campus is situated in Qibao Town, Minhang District, Shanghai, and the new campus will be completed in May 2014. Teachers and students will have access to a teaching building with subject classrooms, science laboratories and arts facilities, an administrative building, an indoor gymnasium, an outdoor sports facility, student dormitories and a dining hall.

It would be great experience for anyone interested in international relations, Chinese politics, or someone generally curious about the think-tank scene.
