Do you like working with young people and enjoy a varied everyday life? We are looking for a new person for the central task of the secretariat of the Association of Students at the University of Zurich, VSUZH. The secretariat works with eight students in weekly meetings, while allowing for independent work in the office near the university. Bookkeeping and administration of the VSUZH are part of the daily work.

The secretariat may not intervene in the executive board's decision-making powers, but may be asked by the executive board for its assessment. The secretariat is present at board and council meetings and accompanies the student board at team building and team bonding events.
