Wanted: Anniversary master of the highest calibre – could it be you?


HYY’s 148th anniversary – the best thing ever!

Epic, surprising, touching, hilarious or dazzling? What kind of an anniversary do you think HYY should have? Should there be confetti, sparkles or perhaps some alpacas? Are you a party planning pro? If so, become our anniversary master!

HYY’s anniversary is held on Saturday, 26 November, and it will be celebrated in the form of an academic dinner party with an open after-party. The anniversary master assembles an anniversary team, participates in planning both the anniversary and its after-party and is responsible for the practical arrangements of the anniversary. It is possible to apply as an anniversary master duo, too. The anniversary master or masters will be remunerated with a fee of 1,000 euros and a 15% commission on all the sponsors they successfully negotiate for the event.

Please send your free-form application to hanna.hynynen(at) by Monday, 9 May 2016, at 10 am. The email should be titled “Anniversary master 2016”. Interviews for the position will be held during week 20.
