Apply for the position of HYY's representative in Hoas Delegation!


The Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY) is one of the founder communities of the Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region (Hoas) and a significant background figure. When the regulations of Hoas are reformed, the role and the size of the delegation will change. We are now looking for five actual members and five deputy members to a new Hoas Delegation. Two representatives are elected for a one-year term 2016 and three representatives are elected for a two-year term 2016-2017. The vice chair of the delegation is also elected from among HYY's members.

The most important responsibility of Hoas Delegation is to supervise the activities of Hoas Board. If necessary, the delegation also appoints Hoas board members. The Hoas Delegation consists of 16 members and meets annually mainly in the spring and autumn meetings. In addition to statutory meetings, the delegation may be convened in order to brainstorm, spar and develop Hoas. HYY provides training and background support for the position. The membership in Hoas Delegation is a confidential post and the members are not paid for the post.

Applicants should have interest in student housing, motivation to act for the purpose of Hoas, which is to facilitate the students' housing situation, and the enthusiasm to develop Hoas. The knowledge of the operating environment of Hoas and the preparedness to cooperate with HYY will contribute to the successful management of the confidential post. In addition, living in Hoas housing, being active in residents' committees and experience in HYY's activities are considered advantages. The operating language of the Delegation is Finnish so fluency in the Finnish language is an asset.

Please deliver your application by email to no later than 17 Jan 2016. The application should include the applicant's first names, surname, personal identity number, address, domicile, nationality, email address and telephone number. You may also attach your CV.
