As part of the Editorial Board or a Team

Add a new learning experience to your time at the Vrije Universiteit and become part of our organisation. We’re looking for people to join our Editorial Board, and for people to form our brand new Teams: the Editorial, Technical and Communications Teams!

The Editorial Board and Teams

We’re currently looking for new Editorial Board members and members for our new Editorial, Technical and Communications Team.

The Editorial Board is the organizational centre of VU Campusradio and it mainly consists of students. This board is engaged in recruiting new show makers, putting together broadcast schedules, training new show makers and promoting our content.

Our new Teams guide show makers every step along the way of their production, under coordination of the Editorial Board.

Vacant positions

You can download all job descriptions below. Keep in mind that we’ll first select Editorial Board members, and follow up with Team members. The deadlines are September 19th and November 2nd respectively.

How to apply

You can apply by sending your CV and motivation letter to editorialboard.radio@vu.nl. Motivation and commitment weigh in heavier than your work experience, so don’t hesitate and do apply.

Along with your application, do send us your availability on the interview days. For the Editorial Board positions that’s September 24th. For the Team members positions that’s November 8th. Ideally conversations take place on campus, but if necessary, we’ll schedule a Zoom-meeting.
