Open positions | 9.11.2017

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.

  • Development Cooperation Wing works with TYY’s development cooperation projects. Wings members attend and organise different kinds of development cooperation themed events.
  • 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.
  • Equality Wing promotes equality and accessibility in the university. Wing organises events and trainings and communicates about accessibility issues.
  • 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. 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. You can apply for several Wings but become selected only in one Wing. We expect commitment for at least one semester.

Application period starts 9 November and ends 26 November at 23:59.

Applications are sent via TYY website form

TYY Executive Board will decide about Wing members in their meeting.

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