Projects will include.

  • Web design and content creation in support of the organisation in general and specific events
  • Administration of content management systems.
  • Administration of Google cloud tools.
  • Database administration.
  • Support to marketing, operations and accounting teams.

This is a great opportunity to get involved with WICE, make a valuable contribution and see all aspects of the organisation. If you want to learn new skills and achieve some goals that would look great on a future CV all whilst having the feel-good factor of volunteering then we would like to hear from you.

The Living in France Department delivers a program of activities that enhance the experience of living in France for people both new to Paris and those who want to delve deeper into the City’s secrets. Through the provision of a program of practical courses such as cooking and wine tasting, plus courses that range from hands-on workshops to behind the scenes tours on such topics as perfume making and fashion, participants can learn how to master the French art of “savoir vivre.” You will work with our team of very experienced providers who continue to strive to improve the living in France experience for our WICE members.

The Accounting Assistant works closely with the WICE Treasurer to import financial data into Quickbooks on a weekly basis (2 hours a week in the WICE Office). Training on internal systems will be provided. Previous experience with Quickbooks is required.

The WICE team is seeking a number of enthusiastic marketing volunteers to work on specific projects through the summer and autumn months. Active engagement in a range of responsibilities, including assisting in all aspects of the Marketing Communication implementation to support direct response marketing and brand strategies; supporting the senior staff in the development of language course marketing campaigns and media placement activities; and assisting in the development and project management of Open House and Apero evenings. A great way to get hands on experience in a busy, lively marketing team.

We are looking for a dynamic person who is passionate about art and culture and who can volunteer their time to developing and managing the Cultural Studies department. Ideally, the volunteer candidate has worked in the arts in France and has developed a network of professionals in various fields covering art and culture that they can leverage. The position requires someone who likes a good challenge, is creative, and who can volunteer time to develop new program ideas and bring them to fruition.

This is a new and exciting opening with WICE to manage new incoming partnership requests and to develop relationships with other groups about forming partnerships. Fluent French and English is required for this opening, as is a willingness to network.
