You tasks will include creating small actions and materials that could encourage ELSA members and outsiders from the Netherlands to contribute to the international data-gathering. The survey closes in April, hence, your work would most likely finish then.

Skill requirements: Communication, organization, creativity, open-mindess.

Language requirements: English, minimum at the B2 level.

Assistant for External Relations

As the Assistant for External Relations under the VP Marketing of ELSA the Netherlands, you will support the VP with the search for marketing parters.

Even though, most of our activities are in English, we believe that it is important to uphold the identity of our national group, by preserving its language in our communications, but also to ensure that all the law students in the Netherlands can be sufficiently informed about our work and initiatives. For that, we need a translator, from English to Dutch.

Skill requirements: Organization, time-management, good writing skills.

Language requirements: Dutch, at the very least, at the C1 level. English, minimum at the B2 level.
