  • Providing up-to-date policy analysis and background information on developments in the fields of NEVs and ICVs in China,
  • Conducting research work in the fields of NEVs and ICVs in China,

  • Maintain and actively develop a high-level comprehensive network of relevant experts and stakeholders in the fields of NEVs and ICVs in China.


General duties:

  • Introducing technical up-to-date expertise to the project and ensure the quality of project implementation with regard to NEV and ICV sector knowledge,
  • Contributing in writing to project related reporting and communication activities,
  • Communicating with project partners and relevant stakeholders, building and maintaining strong networks and relations with national and international institutions,
  • Support the procurement of services, the development of Terms of Reference (ToR) and contract development needed to implement project activities in the fields of NEVs and ICVs in China,
  • Planning with and supervision of short-term experts and consultants to implement project activities in the fields of NEVs and ICVs in China,
  • Support the Project Director with translation/interpreting,
  • Supervision of assisting staff assigned to project (e. g. interns)


Requirement: Your profile


  • You are a government affairs specialist in the automotive industry, ideally with specific work experience and a well-stablished network in the fields of NEVs and ICVs
  • University degree in a relevant field (e. g. in engineering, economics, politics, environmental management or related degrees) at master level or higher
  • At least 3 years of relevant professional work experience (for Senior Advisors minimum 5 years), ideally in an international environment
  • Fluency in Chinese (native) and English (knowledge of German is a plus)
  • Strong English and Chinese writing skills (German is a plus)

  • Everyone has the same opportunities in our company, regardless of gender, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or physical disability. We recruit based on specialist expertise and social skills.
  • Transparency and fair opportunities for career advancement are just as much as a matter of course for us as gender not being a barrier to taking up a management position.

  • We reward our staff with good remuneration, attractive benefits and cooperative working atmosphere
