Join the HYY150 Anniversary team!

Do you want to be involved in creating the most unforgettable Anniversary ever in a stunning setting? Grab your chance now and join the HYY150 Anniversary team!

HYY’s 150th Anniversary is organised in Helsinki on Saturday 24 November 2018. After an elegant dinner party, the evening continues at The Circus with a brilliant, open afterparty that lasts until the early hours. The party does not end there, of course, as the night goes on through the after-afterparty to the Sillis the next morning, where the party continues through Sunday. You can expect glitter, glamour, general bedazzlement and, of course, the most legendary party weekend of the HYY150 Anniversary year – and you could be a part of making it happen.

We are looking for motivated and experienced party-organisers who know how to take initiative to join the team creating an extraordinarily glorious and memorable Anniversary party. We are seeking multiskilled people to join the team to realise different parts of the party. The Anniversary team works in Finnish, which means that knowledge of the Finnish language is needed in all positions. Are you especially interested in the afterparty, the after-afterparty or perhaps the Sillis – or do you know how to communicate creatively on social media? We have the perfect opportunity for you to show your skills and learn new things.

As a member of the Anniversary team, you will get experience in event production and free entrance to all events of the Anniversary weekend, and, of course, you will be a part of a massively fun team. We will also organise a memorable appreciation night for the Anniversary team after the party!

If you are a member of HYY, have honed your skills by producing organisational events or in some other way through your hobbies or work and are eager to realise the most unforgettable party of the HYY150 Anniversary year, this is your moment to shine!
