HYY is looking for a part-time office secretary




The office secretary sees to the meeting papers of the Representative Council, the Preparatory Committee, the Board and the Financial Committee as well as other duties related to their meetings to ensure that the meetings run as smoothly as possible.

In practice, this translates primarily into the following duties:

  • Compiling, writing up, distributing and archiving meeting papers
  • Meeting arrangements
  • Website maintenance related to the meeting documents
  • Assignments from the secretary general and the Board (including registrations, powers of attorney and congratulations)


The Board meets once a week, whereas the other administrative bodies generally have one meeting a month.

The weekly working hours are 20 hours/week, and the salary paid for this is in accordance with the student unions’ collective agreement (with potential bonuses for education and experience).

The position requires an excellent command of Finnish and precision in your work. We also require good skills with Microsoft Office software, especially Word and Excel.

The job is well-suited to students, as the working hours are very flexible – only the Board’s agenda and the Representative Council meetings have firm schedules. If possible, the work would begin already on week 36.

The position is filled as soon as we find a suitable person.


If you are interested in the position, please send your application and CV to the Chief Financial Officer at merja.viitasalo@hyy.fi. The CFO also provides further information on the position.
