As an association coordinator, my role involves a wide range of responsibilities and duties. I am responsible for taking care of the needs of the various clubs and associations within KY and ensuring that they have the resources and support they need to operate.
Another one of my key responsibilities is serving as vice president in the Sports and Wellbeing Committee. This includes for example working as a secretary in meetings and managing the yearly budget for the committee. This consists of keeping track of expenses and revenues, as well as handling invoices and expense claims, which has also been a great opportunity to gain experience in using accounting software.
Being an association coordinator can be a very rewarding job. You get to work with a diverse group of people and meet countless new contacts within KY. You also have the opportunity to develop valuable skills in areas such as leadership, communication, and organization.
A great thing about working at KY is the flexibility of the hours. Here, the importance of balancing your studies and your work is taken into account and it has really been a great relief.
I would recommend this job to anyone that has a passion for KY and is looking for a unique working experience in which work and fun are in perfect balance!
Hello KY! Here are all my job related BeReals from the last 14 days. Even though I am pretty BeFake, my BeReal describes the everyday life of culture producers quite realistically.
First there are a couple of shots hanging out in the member service room brainstorming ideas with other KY employees while being available for KY members. As a culture producer you get to work as service advisor with communication coordinator and association coordinator. Service hours are fun times because you never know when there is going to be rush hour and when time to carry out other projects service advisors do for KY members.
Secondly there are two shots from different meetings. As culture producer you get to communicate a lot with different types of stakeholders. It's an important and surprisingly big part of the job. Usually communicating happens through email or TG but of course in BeReal I’ve got the best parts of communicating; Lunch date with subcommittee chairpersons to plan Wappu week. Sauna hangout with other Aalto community event organizers to catch up with the current state of student culture in Otaniemi.
Thirdly there are a lot of pics with the KUVA’s Safety Green hoodie on; Hukkaputki marketing, metro ride to check out the Hukkaputki route in the east before the actual event, card games on our cabin trip with KUVA and fun times in our Kevään Lauluilta event. Culture producer gets to take part on KY’s best and brightest committee, Culture Committee KUVA as a vice chair. Leading KUVA with the chairperson (culture responsible from KY-board) and organizing events with other KUVA volunteers is at least for me the most fun part of the job.
Finally there is me taking in the sun through the blinds while doing the “back office” part of the job. Being responsible for the culture's budget is probably the most important task culture producer have. I would recommend this job to someone who has interest in making budgets and does not hate accounting. It makes other parts of the job all fun and easy when you get the money part figured out :)
