Africa, India, the Philippines, China, Brazil and United Kingdom
Placements across our Fellowship locations are subject to an approved working permit for the specific country. It is the candidate’s obligation with assistance from the host company to obtain the necessary permissions.
Fellows are employed by their host companies based on a formal temporary volunteering or working contract that is in line with local HR and employment policies. To formalize their role as LGT Impact Fellows, nominated candidates are also asked to sign a Fellowship Agreement with LGT Venture Philanthropy Foundation.
Fellows with assistance from their host companies are responsible for obtaining the appropriate visa that allows them to work in the Fellowship destination for the duration of their Fellowship. We offer assistance with respect to providing necessary documentation and sharing learnings from experiences with previous Fellows.
