What are the looked-for characteristics of an ideal VOS board member?

Being a part of the VOS board comes with a lot of perks but also a bunch of responsibility. We are looking for devoted, organised and positive people that can bring freshness and nice ideas to the table. Someone who would like to transition from ‘a member’ to a ‘board member’.


You are enrolled in the Linguistics course at the UvA and you are interested in the student’s life of the Department and of the University itself.

You want to put in some hours to make a change in your life and the experience of your fellow students/colleagues, further called ‘the beloved members’ or ‘Vosjes’.

You are social and communicative.

You enjoy organisation and have experience in working in a team.

There is no ‘I’ in ‘team’ unless you’re a phonetician 😉
