Established in 2008 and headquartered in Singapore, Double Helix Tracking Technologies Pte Ltd (DoubleHelix) develops and bring to market innovative solutions to verify the legality and quality of wood products traded across the world.
We use a combination of scientific testing, on-site assessments and document checks to identify and
mitigate risk of unknown timber entering the supply chain which impacts legality and/or product quality.
In so doing, we bring an unprecedented level of transparency to global timber supply chains, building trust and assurance between buyers and sellers of wood products.
We also work with partners including governments, foundations and scientific centres of excellence to
further common goals of a legal and sustainable timber trade.
In Myanmar, DoubleHelix has been operating independently since 2012. More recently the company has
become a registered Certification Body with the Myanmar Forest Certification Committee (MFCC) and
the Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC), contributing experience and expertise in the
development of a national timber legality certification system.
Elsewhere, the company also audits against the CertiSource Standard for Verified Legal Timber in
Indonesia (www.certisource.org). In this context DoubleHelix is accredited to ISO/IEC 17065:2012
Conformity assessment --- Requirements for bodies certifying products, processes and services, and our
business is governed by comprehensive in-house Standard Operating Procedures and Policies. These
systems are regularly audited by the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (www.jasanz.org/register). Whilst our accreditation is limited to Indonesia operations, we seek to establish the same level of process and quality management across the while business, including Myanmar.
As an administrator, you will ensure the smooth running of the company’s administrative processes in Yangon. You will also work with the team in Myanmar to provide verification support where necessary.
1. Manage administrative processes in the Yangon office
You will initially assist in the administrative process of company registration with DICA and the bank account registration. Providing logistical support for the organisation of assessments will also be expected. Over time, you will be trained to manage the company’s day-to-day administrative processes in areas such as finance, admin and HR. Eventually, you will be expected to conduct these processes by yourself, although you will always have the support of your colleagues in Singapore and Indonesia.
2. Provide procedural support
You will assist in the implementation of operating procedures in Myanmar. Full training in DoubleHelix procedures will be provided. This may be in the form of, but not excluded to, the following:
· Assist with basic scanning and document organisation
· Assist with document requests to Myanmar Timber Enterprises (MTE) and Forest Department
· Basic translation of training material (English to Burmese), traceability documents (Burmese to English)
· Client training and follow-up training
As you are trained in the various Double Helix procedures, you will be expected to follow them independently. As part of the procedures, you will be required to correspond with the relevant government departments, companies, sawmills and partners.
3. Assist with operational processes
You will work closely with the Myanmar team and provide assistance in operational processes where necessary. This will likely be in the form of basic document verification and docket requests management. As you assist with the supply chain verification process, you will develop and maintain good relations with sawmill contacts, MTE and FD.
