We offer you the opportunity to learn new skills and develop yourself in a safe and mutually supportive team. In addition, through this activity, you have the opportunity to create nationwide networks for yourself for the future. For working, we pay a fee according to the assignment and responsibilities, and for the activities it is possible to obtain credits, courses and an official certificate of employment.

The requirement is Student Union Kaakko’s membership, an open-minded mind and a willingness to commit to activities for the whole year. We are also seeking a creative and new perspective on action.

In the Board you can do services, student events, tutor activities, communication, sports and hobby activities, advocacy, international activities and more! Each board member will have their responsibilities at the end of the year and will also be able to influence it.

There needs to be no previous organizational or influencing experience, but it can be useful. The main working language of the board is Finnish.
