CLD Consultants is a Chinese firm founded by Phyllis Chang, formerly the Ford Foundation's program officer for Law, Rights, and Governance in Beijing. The firm supports non-profit development work in the PRC, primarily in the areas of legal reform, citizens’ rights, governance, and NGO development. They are now looking for a program officer. Please note the following:
This position is aimed at outstanding, reform-minded young Chinese lawyers who are interested in doing non-profit work rather than practicing commercial law. It is based in Beijing.
The Program Officer needs to have at least an undergraduate law degree from a Chinese law school and must have some work or study experience abroad. In addition, she/he needs to speak and write English well, because many of our projects involve cooperation with foreign organizations, donors and experts. As importantly, the Program Officer should be deeply interested in social change and eager to work on projects to promote the country’s legal development and to strengthen the protection of rights. We are looking for a mature person with at least several years’ of work experience, either in China or abroad.
