What is oikos Copenhagen doing?
oikos Copenhagen is the local Danish chapter of an international student-driven organization that promotes sustainable economics and management education. We are the largest sustainability-related organization within the Copenhagen area. We are located at CBS, but our activities are not limited to CBS students and are open to any other students at higher education institutions, such as KU and DTU, as well.
All members of oikos Copenhagen become part of the global oikos network, which consists of students, faculty members, advisors and company partners. Located at higher education institutions, we want to transform education and research around the world, by embedding social and environmental perspectives.
oikos Copenhagen offers a platform for learning, networking and hands-on projects related to sustainability. The organization manages six different projects: oikos Case Competition, oikos Impact, oikos Effect, Social Pioneers, GreenWeek, Curricular Transformation.
The Engagement Function
oikos Copenhagen is divided into functions and projects. Every project-team will consist of 6 members, each of them coming from different functions: Project Management, Communication, Finance, Engagement, Relation Track, oikos Network.
The Engagement function is looking for members able to create a highly committed environment in the teams they will be working in. Lack of commitment is often a relevant issue in voluntary-based organisations; this is why this function exists.
We are recruiting!
Who are we looking for?
The function is looking for an outgoing, extrovert, and proactive person. Among the most relevant tasks in the function, function members will have to establish external relations in order to organise social gatherings; thus, having event management skills is surely a plus, but not necessary to apply for the position. Certainly, a full sense of coordination and communication is mandatory, since the members will have to relate to both internal and external actors on a weekly basis.
Our official recruitment starts on 1 September 2019, but if you have questions either in terms of oikos or about the engagement function feel free to contact Julia Köhler under email@example.com
Application period: 1 September - 30 September 2019
