Educational Officer

You could see the position of Educational Officer as a Project Manager. As the Educational Officer of the 58th board of FAECTOR, you will be in charge of the educational events, the representation of FAECTOR within Erasmus University Rotterdam and the international aspect of the association. Some of the main responsibilities include the Excellence Programme, the FAECTOR Consultancy Project (FCP), Career Skills and the Workshop Cycle.

The position of Educational Officer is certainly one of the most diverse and exciting ones! You come into contact with all three of FAECTOR's pillars through the many social events, educational projects and the acquisition of companies. Furthermore, you will have much freedom for innovations and creative ideas. For example, together with the Excellence Programme committee, you will choose a topic which you find fascinating and relevant. Next to that, it is up to you what you want to organise as part of the Workshop Cycle. For example, this year, I organised an Excel Workshop and worked together with B&R Beurs to organise the Financial Engineering Cycle (FEC). As you will attend all of those events yourself,  you will get a chance to build up quite some knowledge during your board year.

As a result of such a diverse portfolio of projects, you will cooperate with a lot of different people. You will have contact with the university, the professors and other study associations. Moreover, you will be in touch with many different students: from first-year students in the Freshmen Committee, second and third-year students as part of the Excellence  Programme and Master students during the Workshop Cycle, ESE Take Offs and the FAECTOR Consultancy Project. Additionally, you will approach and visit various companies for the Workshop Cycle, the Excellence Programme and the FAECTOR Consultancy Project.

The board year is about more than just following the guidelines. You will learn how to tackle unexpected situations, how to set up new projects, work together with different kinds of people and how to communicate effectively. You will certainly learn a lot about yourself and develop many valuable skills. Most importantly, you will do all that while having a lot of fun, collecting memories and making friends for a lifetime!
