Talented Chinese interns available to help UK businesses

A new service from Cambridge-based Crayfish.io aims to help match UK businesses with talented Chinese speaking interns.

Through the service, British corporations and SMEs keen to access the promising Chinese market – or grow their presence there – can gain valuable support from Chinese students already in the UK. Crayfish.io has available a bank of students from leading universities, all of whom can help businesses navigate the linguistic and cultural barriers that could hamper success.

For organisations, having support from an ambitious Chinese-speaking intern for several weeks or months over the summer is an opportunity to gather cultural insight and accomplish important communication, marketing and administrative tasks.

Students benefit from real work experience and the chance to put into practice the science, engineering, IT, marketing, financial or business skills and knowledge they have gained in prestigious universities.

The Crayfish service, available for a nominal £49 fee, works through its online platform at http://www.crayfish.io:

  • Register your business on the website as a client.
  • Choose ‘Post your job’ and select the package ‘work experience/ intern’.
  • Post a description of your intern opportunities to the Crayfish platform.
  • Crayfish promotes the opportunity to its database of students, through its own and partners' social media channels, and through its connections with Chinese student unions in major universities in London, Cambridge, Oxford, Nottingham, Manchester and Birmingham.
  • CVs will be sent to Crayfish.io.
  • Crayfish will organise the CVs and send to you.  Please note that Crayfish will not be screening CVs – it will be up to you to decide which individuals are appropriate to your needs.  However, its team will arrange face to face interviews towards the end of May if needed.
  • Businesses are entitled to a full refund if no CV is received within a month.

This new internship service is the latest offering from Crayfish.io, which connects talented Chinese speaking professionals with Western businesses that need help in dealing with their Chinese partners and audiences. Crayfish provides a source of qualified people to undertake projects and offer information, knowledge and cultural insight.
