TEDxXiguan is a non-profit, volunteer-organized TEDx event based in Guangzhou. It’s a volunteer endeavor so it’s technically not a job, rather it’s something you work in your own time.

Work time may vary depending on how many projects we have running, and you have a say in which projects to take part in. As a reference, we expect you to allocate at least 5 hours per week for TEDxXiguan - this may increase before and after events.

While you won’t make money by working at TEDxXiguan, you will also get quite a lot. For starters you will have the chance to work with a team of professionals on something truly meaningful and impactful. We also provide opportunities to connect with other TEDx teams, attend other events and even opportunities to go to TED Conferences. 

The more you enter into it, the more you will take out.
