TYY is looking for new members in its four Wings for autumn 2017

Open positions | 4.5.2017

Wings are part of Students Union and their goal is to give ideas and work for better Student Union. In wings you have freedom to create new free time activities and take care of students’ interests.

The Wings are based on four different themes which are environment, internationality, development cooperation and accessibility.

  • International Wing actively promotes internationalisation, tolerance and multiculturalism on campus. Wing’s most important task is to organise events that bring together international and Finnish students.
  • Development Cooperation Wing works with TYY’s development cooperation projects. Wings members attend national events, different kinds of trainings and global education projects.
  • Environmental Wing promotes environmentally friendly procedures among the students. The Wing organises environmental training, communicates about environmental issues and organises events. The Wing is also responsible for realising TYY's environmental programme and for planning its implementation at all levels.
  • Accessibility Wing promotes equality and accessibility in the university. Wing organises events and trainings and communicates about accessibility issues.

We expect applicants to have motivation and enthusiasm for the task and ability to work in group. Interest in wing’s theme or previous experience in organisations is a benefit but not a must.

Application period starts 4 May and ends 21 May at 23:59. Applications are sent via TYY website form. TYY Executive Board will decide about Wing members in their meeting in June.

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