The maximum for undergraduates is 4 hours a week, Master’s 6 hours a week and PhD students the maximum is 9 hours a week.  If very busy it is fine to have time off.  It is about having the freedom to choose working hours to fit the circumstances.

Greater Hong Kong Think Tank

Message from Norman Wan, MPhil student at Jesus

The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (GBA) is a city cluster in Southeast China connecting nine Mainland cities and two Special Administrative Regions, namely Hong Kong and Macao. It is one of the world’s fastest growing regions, contributing 12 per cent of China’s GDP yet occupying less than 1 per cent of its land area.

Greater Hong Kong (GHK) is a newly founded, youth-run think tank in Hong Kong, with the goal of offering a platform for young people from all over the world to explore and promote the GBA through industry research, stakeholder outreach and policy advocacy.

GHK is now looking for volunteers (university students or young professionals) to co-produce GBA-focused industry insights for our website and social media channels. Workload shall be light; approximately, each researcher will contribute an article every three weeks. A certificate of completion will be awarded to those with five written outputs or more. Alternatively, students with a background in journalism / language studies may apply for the role of Student Editors, who will edit the articles from the researchers.

The two positions are voluntary. Anyone looking to pursue a career in the GBA, boost their CVs, or keen on policy making and China development, is welcome. Interested parties shall apply via this form. For inquiries, please contact Mr Petrus Wang at petruswang@greaterhk.org.

Women at the Commercial Bar

One Essex Court is a leading set of barristers’ Chambers, specialising in commercial litigation and arbitration. Our work embraces all aspects of domestic and international trade, commerce and finance.

Over the last few years, we have realised that fewer women than we would like are applying for a career at the Commercial Bar. In order to encourage women to consider a career at the Bar, we are offering the following opportunities to aspiring barristers in the 2022/2023 academic year:

  • Career clinics: 4 November 2022 and 25 November 2022 (via Zoom). The career clinics will provide an opportunity for a 20-minute confidential chat with a female member of chambers, to discuss any issue around applying to or working at the Commercial Bar.
  • Pupillage Applications Workshop: 20 January 2023 (via Zoom). This workshop will focus on how to present yourself to best advantage in pupillage application forms. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to a talk, participate in a practical exercise where there will be an opportunity for individual feedback, and ask questions during a Q&A session.
  • Pupillage Interviews Workshop: 24 February 2023 (via Zoom). This workshop will focus on how to prepare for and perform in pupillage interviews. Attendees will have the opportunity to listen to a talk, participate in a practical exercise where there will be an opportunity for individual feedback, and ask questions during a Q&A session.

Applications for the career clinics are open to anyone potentially interested in a career at the Commercial Bar, regardless of stage or subject of study.

Applications for the workshops are open to those applying for pupillage at the Commercial Bar in 2023.

We particularly welcome applications from those under-represented at the Commercial Bar, including people of minority ethnic origin, people with disabilities, LGBT+ people, and people who attended state schools or are first-generation university students.

Application forms for the career clinic and workshops can be downloaded from our website here.

Oxbridge Academic Programs

Oxbridge Academic Programs has been organizing academic summer programs for high school students for more than 38 years. Every year we recruit instructors and admin team members to work on our programs in Oxford (Pembroke and Corpus) and Cambridge (Peterhouse and Jesus) during July and August.

We are looking for instructors to lead a variety of courses in Law, Engineering, Medicine, International Relations, Politics, Business, Environmental Science, Psychology, Creative Writing, Speech and Debate, among many others. Our instructors either hold or are working towards a masters or PhD in a relevant subject.

Our Admin team members (Program Assistants and Activities Directors) help our programs run smoothly by assisting in our program offices and leading activities in town for our students (sports, museum visits, concerts, etc). They are usually current undergrad or grad students looking for summer work.

Admin posts are residential (we provide room and board in college).

Program Assistants are based in our program offices and assist with all aspects of running the program: answering questions from students, logistics, assisting faculty, organizing events.

Activities Directors manage our activities budget and design and implement the robust activities program. They run walking tours, museum visits, parties, games nights, sports, and more.

We are accepting applications from qualified candidates now!

To apply, please send your CV/resume and cover letter directly to me, letting me know which position you are applying for, and if you’re applying for an instructor role, which of our courses you would be most comfortable teaching.
