Secretary

The secretary’s main task is to ensure the smooth logistical and administrative functioning of the TDP board. The work of the secretary has a more leveled time investment in comparison to e.g. the co-heads of initiatives, since scheduling meetings, administrative work, and the management of the website are a consistent effort and workflow.   

The core tasks and responsibilities include: 

  • Recording/keeping minutes of the meetings: scheduling, taking minutes, creating the (weekly) agenda beforehand  
  • Updating and managing the website – incl registrations for events   
  • Administrative manners, such as writing the evaluation report or taking the lead for writing proposals to the supervisory board, such as a podcast studio proposal  
  • Possibly: hosting and organizing events  

What we can offer you: 

  • Experience in web-design 
  • Experience with administrative work 
  • Expanding your network 
  • One-time compensation of 1000 euros at the end of the board year 

What we ask from you: 

  • Between 5 to 10 hours of your time per week 
  • Available the full academic year 
  • Organizational and planning skills  
  • Assertiveness and social skills (e.g. calling and emailing people)  
  • Understanding of and openness to learning about web design / website management
