Share +

Open positions | 7.12.2017

Wings are a part of Students Union and their goal is to make the Student Union a better place for everyone. In the Wings you have freedom to create new free time activities for students and to take care of students’ interests.

The Wings are based on four different themes: development cooperation, environment, equality and internationality.

International Wing promotes actively internationalisation, tolerance and multiculturalism on campuses. Wing’s most important task is to organise events that bring together students from versatile backgrounds.

We are looking for both chair and regular members in the International Wing. We expect the applicants to have motivation and enthusiasm for the task and ability to work in a group. Interest in wing’s theme or previous experience in organisations is a benefit but not a must. If you apply for the chair’s position we hope you have previous experience of wing’s themes. We expect commitment for at least one semester. If you apply for chair’s position you should commit for the whole year.

Application period starts on 7 December and ends 28 December at 23:59.

Applications are sent via e-mail to tyy-kv@utu.fi. TYY Executive Board will decide about Wing members in their meeting in January. Please tell in the application briefly (max. 500 characters) why you would like to be in the wing and are you applying for the spring semester or the whole year. If you apply for chair’s position, you should briefly tell about your previous experience. TYY Executive Board elects the members and the chair in their meeting in January.

TYY emphasises the importance of transparency and equality. We hope to get numerous applications from candidates with diverse backgrounds.
