Educational Officer

As the Educational Officer of the 53rd board of FAECTOR, you will be responsible for 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 Best Econometric Thesis Award (βETA), the Excellence Programme, the FAECTOR Research Project (FRP), the Workshop Cycle and the Orientation Days.

You could see the position of Educational Officer as a Project Manager, as taking care of all educational events will be the most time-consuming task. Nonetheless, your tasks differ widely throughout the year, which makes this position very diverse and therefore a lot of fun!

You will also get in contact with a lot of different people. An Educational Officer has lots of contact with the university and the professors, but also with many companies. For example, you will contact and visit different companies for the Best Econometric Thesis Award, the Excellence Programme and the FAECTOR Research Project. Besides that, you are the contact person for the international students.

Of course, a board year is much more than just organizing all those events. You will learn how to work together in a group, you will develop many social skills and you will make friends for a lifetime!

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to know more about the position of Educational Officer of the 53rd board of FAECTOR!

From this year onwards this position is also open for international students who are able to understand and make themselves understood in Dutch.
