Become a Group leader!

Are you looking for a way to kick-start your time in Utrecht? Do you want to strengthen your communication and leadership skills from the moment you arrive in Utrecht? Are you passionate about self-development and becoming more social? 

Check out this opportunity to become a Group leader in the UU Welcome Week!

The UU Welcome Week has established the role of Group Leader. This position is open to any new international students who would like to guide their group (in partnership with a mentor) during the week and to make sure everyone knows where to go and when, while also making sure everyone is able to find their place in the group. Your role also includes initiating plans and social contact with your group members.

What's in it for you?

This is an excellent opportunity to develop your leadership skills in a fun, casual and relaxed setting. We also offer the following perks:

  • Free ticket for the social activities during UU Welcome Week (if you already bought a ticket, you will be refunded).
  • Leadership training from an expert in leadership and personal development
  • A comprehensive training session to familiarise you with the event logistics and provide you with the first insights into the programme. You will then be prepared to share all the information with your group when needed.
  • A chance to work with the Welcome Week team and meet like-minded, enthusiastic students as soon as you arrive in Utrecht!

Who are we looking for?

We do not expect you to have any prior leadership experience. Instead, we are looking for easy-going, enthusiastic people who are willing to learn on the go. Of course we will provide you with training and all the necessary information. The Welcome Week team will also help and support you during the week, together with a mentor.

Do you fit the following description?
