Team Manager's Missions

Management of foreign interns
The manager will be responsible for reviewing applications, resumes and cover letters, and recruiting future interns. The manager will give new interns orientation about their work, guide them through their personal project as well as through the general activities required by ACOPIA that serve the purpose of unifying more people together, and confirm payments with the CEO.

Coordinating projects and programs between staff and interns
Depending on the time of the year, ACOPIA offers different and various cultural programs in both Korea and Japan. As staff is mostly Korean and Japanese (Korean or English speaking), the manager will coordinate foreign interns’ activities with those of the staff. The manager will be an intermediary between them and allow good communication. For this, English working proficiency and Korean advanced proficiency are required for intercommunication. Japanese proficiency is preferred.

Planning and promotion of all ACOPIA’s programs
The manager will ensure that ACOPIA’s programs are running well and that their promotions are efficient and effective. For this, the manager will thoroughly explain each program’s objective, content and details to the interns and will plan a social media strategy that will be put in practice along with the interns. The manager will make a detailed weekly planning every two week and assign each specific task to a specific intern.

Management of foreign participants in the various programs of ACOPIA
Currently, many participants of ACOPIA’s programs come from Japan. In an effort to expand internationally and exchange more cultures, the manager’s role will be to recruit more international participants and to guide them through the admission and participation process. The manager will help ACOPIA reach more international participants.

Creation of partnerships with foreign universities and organizations
With the help of interns, the manager will create various partnerships. Together, the interns and the manager will prospect and find organizations whose views and values are aligned with those of ACOPIA. They will learn the correct behavior and ethics of creating partnerships, and of keeping good external relations.

Administrative tasks
The manager will be in charge of replying to all business e-mails, to inquiries about various camps and programs, and of answering to phone calls and receiving packages.
