"If you have any questions regarding the board or the position Vice-Chair, do not hesitate and send me a message via email!"

What do you do?

The role of vice chair is crucial within the board. As vice chair, you take over the tasks of the chairperson when they are absent. You work closely with the chairperson and fulfill their duties when necessary. The vice chair has an advisory role towards the chairperson. As vice chair, you focus on communication within the association and maintain external relationships. This includes reaching out to speakers for events and maintaining contacts with external parties. Additionally, you work closely with the treasurer on acquisition. You are also responsible for applying for recognition and the profiling fund. You help maintain an overview and contribute to finding solutions.

What is in it for you?

After a board year at SV MUSA, you are guaranteed to have grown personally and professionally. It allows you to develop essential skills such as leadership, teamwork, task management, even if you don't possess them yet. You are also challenged to take responsibility and show initiative. 

The beauty of being on the board is that you can challenge yourself as much as you want. Serving on a board offers you practical experience that can enrich your CV and make you stand out in future job applications, regardless of the (study) direction you (eventually) choose. 

As a board member, you have tremendous opportunities to build and/or expand your network. You have the chance to collaborate with other (Islamic) student associations, companies (including recruiters), and other organizations. 

Notably, you are applying for a position within an Islamic student association. You'll find yourself in an environment where you're consciously and unconsciously encouraged to become a better Muslim and to build and deepen your religious knowledge. Additionally, you help Muslim students at the UvA better express their religious identity, for example, by providing a decent prayer space. You build and maintain a community where (new) Muslims feel at home, can eat, drink, and laugh together.

What do we ask?

  • You are a full-time student at a university (of applied sciences) in Amsterdam;

  • You are motivated, creative, and eager to learn;

  • You have a good command of both English and Dutch languages, both written and spoken;

  • The ability to quickly switch between tasks;

  • Creative ideas, but also the ability to give others space to share their ideas;

  • The ability to motivate others and be a team player, while also being able to work independently;

  • Experience within a board or student council is a plus, but not required;

  • You are able to devote ±12 hours per week to SV MUSA.
