The Perth Global Shapers Hub is growing and we want you to join us!
Our 2017 application period will remain open until 10th October 2016.
Being a global shaper gives you access to an incredible global network of peers, travel and the ability to connect with others in Perth to make a difference.
Please read the important application details below and if you are ready to take the next step follow the instructions listed at the bottom of this page.
The Perth Global Shapers Hub maintains the highest standards of members through a defined qualification and selection process.
Becoming a Global Shaper entails a genuine commitment of your time and energy.
Shapers communicate by email and are expected to attend a minimum of 60% of monthly meetings and hold one or more project roles. Successful applicants will undertake a three-month probation period.
How to Apply:
STEP 1: EMAIL YOUR CV WITH A TWO MINUTE VIDEO OR COVER LETTER
Submit a CV outlining your professional, entrepreneurial and leadership track record. With this please submit a simple 2 minute video or 1 page cover letter introducing yourself and outlining your commitment to social impact and improving the WA community. The video only needs to be a very basic video shot on a smartphone and uploaded to a file sharing service or privately on YouTube. Be sure to include your contact details (best email, phone number) and educational background. Email this through to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Perth Shapers Application’.
We will review applications in the seven day period following the closure of any application period.
STEP 2: PANEL INTERVIEW
The interview stage involves a conversation with a panel of up to five Shapers and/or WA community leaders. This will be arranged at a mutually agreeable time and place and will likely involve a series of discussions not limited to:
– Your motivations for joining the hub.
– Skills and value you can bring to the hub.
– Experience in the social sector.
– Understanding of what being a Global Shaper and Perth hub member entails.
Candidates who are successful in the panel interview stage are welcomed on board the Perth Hub to begin their three-month probation period.
Upon completion of the probation period, your profile is submitted to the World Economic Forum for validation as a Global Shaper.
