Your job role is diverse and flexible, we want to accommodate your interests within our team.
Generally, you will assist as the intern across a range of business units, including our marketing, communications & events teams to represent the interests, in Indonesia, of British business, to Government and other key decision makers. This includes keeping the membership informed of economic and political developments.
You will also work within our ‘Overseas Delivery Partner’ service funded by the UK Department for International Trade, whose aim is to assist British companies in setting their businesses up or exporting into Indonesia. This involves assisting in the identification and dissemination of business opportunities to those who have an interest in developing business relations between Britain and Indonesia.
Your role will also include proof reading English language texts as required.
As with previous interns, your internship tasks can be adapted to fit your interests. For instance, one of our previous intern worked mainly within the communications team, assisting in the formation of the 2016/17 BritCham handbook which serves as a ‘guide to British business in Indonesia’. Whilst another intern researched for and wrote a report on trade issues facing British businesses investing in Indonesia.
All in all, Indonesia is a fast-growing and dynamic market with an ever-changing business environment. As part of your internship you will attend and participate in plenty of events, expos, conventions and networking events to help expand your knowledge of international business and trade relations.
Heightened knowledge within the field of economic development, more specifically the relationship between the UK and Indonesia. You will also acquire an understanding of how Chambers of Commerce maintain key corporate and political relationships as needed to support and expand bilateral trade relations.
Alongside this, you will gain a deep insight into the sensitive but critical roles communications and research serve to helping potential investors to understand the challenging process of market expansion into an emerging market. As our Overseas Delivery Partner team work closely with the British Embassy Jakarta, you will gain valuable experience in how the public and private sectors contribute to trade relations.
The British Chamber of Commerce in Indonesia or as it is fondly known as BritCham, is a membership association established with a mission to facilitate trade and investment between Indonesia and Britain.
The mission then translates into five main objectives:
The BritCham‘s Parton is HSBC and sustaining sponsors are Shell, Premier Oil, British International School, Jardines, Permata Bank, Unilever, G4S, Royal Doulton, Standard Chartered Bank, Rolls-Royce, Prudential, and BP.
Working cooperatively with the British Embassy (UKTI) and the British Council, whose senior representatives sit on our Board of Management, BritCham is committed to developing a services infrastructure that supports all stages of business development right from their inception in Indonesia. Although British in name, our BritCham community is far from exclusively British.
The integrity of the BritCham brand attracts members, sponsors and advertisers with roots from all over the globe and most pleasingly, from our host country, Indonesia. Indeed, through the establishment of Britain in South East Asia (BiSEA), opportunities are expanding in a regional context.
