The application procedure will be executed by the Student Union’s Appointment Advisory Committee (AAC). This committee consists of four persons, of which every independent party is entitled to vote:
- An independent chairman;
- Two current and staying board members of the Student Union (they each have half a vote);
- A delegate from and appointed by the Supervisory Board (first round) or a specialist in the area of business management (second round).
The starting point of the application is that you apply for a function as a board member and not for specific portfolios. Of course, it is important to inform us about your preference and why certain portfolios fit your experience, knowledge and passions. The procedure has three rounds: one written case and two interviews.
Based on your application letter and CV, the AAC might invite you for a first (online) interview. These will take place between the 22nd of November and the 24th of November. This interview is for the AAC to determine if the function of a board member fits your experience and knowledge, and for you to see if it meets your expectations. Examples of subjects that can be discussed are strong and weak personal characteristics, the vision of the Student Union and your interests.
CASE AND SECOND INTERVIEW
If the AAC is positive about this interview, you will get asked to work on a case and you will be invited for a second and last meeting. These will take place on the 7th or 8th of December. You have approximately one week to work on this case. Your case, your role in a team and further qualifications for certain portfolios will be topics for the interview after finishing this case.
After consideration, the AAC will judge which candidates will be able to perform as new board members. Its advice will be taken to the Supervisory Board of the Student Union which eventually determines the appointment of board members. The Supervisory Board mainly consists of delegates from various sectors and a delegate from the university. After they have made a decision, you will be informed.
Every candidate can expect a feedback interview with the AAC once the application procedure has come to an end. Information that has been given during the interviews will remain confidential.
You can send your CV and motivation letter at the latest on the 13th of November at 23:59 to Xander Bon.
