How would you like to be a part of one of the largest student networks in Europe, with 14,500 members in 37 countries, offering services to over 190 000 international students? 
Are you one of those
go-do, active persons with a big international heart? Do you simply love to be around people, and enjoy a bit of cultural exchange through international events? 
We are looking for you! 



WHO ARE WE ?

ESN Malmö is a local section of Erasmus Student Network, the biggest non-profit student organisation in Europe. Our section works as an association in Malmö University, under the Student Union.
Our mission is to represent international students, and thus provide opportunities for cultural understanding and self-development under the principle of Students Helping Students.
We strive to support our incoming- and outgoing exchange students, but also to bring international and intercultural experiences to all students in Malmö!

If you want more information of ESN as an organisation, please visit:http://esn.org/ 




WHAT DO WE DO? 

Working in close cooperation with the International Office, we plan and organise the introduction weeks for 80 - 300 international students at the start of each semester. The introduction weeks include orientation, and social events, with the goal of giving the best possible 'Welcome' to Malmö.

Additionally, we work actively through the semesters, organising other fun events, such as Cottage Weekend, ESN Sea Battle and Laser Tag, and offering student trips to Lapland and Russia. 
We also constantly act as the instance that students can reach out to, would they have any troubles with the life in their new home country. 

We are constantly working on new local events and collaborations, so if you are filled with good ideas on what to do around Malmö, we are gonna love you! 

Last but not least, helping others is not all we do. Being in ESN will allow you the possibility to partake in numerous events arranged all over Europe for the members of the organisation. These events may involve platforms, trainings, position gatherings, Annual Meetings (think 700+ ESN'ers in a single meeting!), and we as a local section will do our best to offer the possibility of joining these events to our board members. To put it simply - being an ESN'er means travelling and new people!




HOW DOES THE BOARD WORK? 

We are now looking for new board members for the academic year 2017-2018. The board works closely together, and although you will have your specific position, your fellow board members will support and help you with whatever you might need. 
Each board member also takes equally part in planning and arranging the activities, so you will always be in the centre of action, and an equal part of everything we do.

Now is the time to look deep into yourself, what are your best qualities and what position suits you best?
Keep in mind, that we do NOT expect any professional experience from you - enthusiasm and curiosity will get you far. 
What matters the most to us, is your motivation and international spirit! 

The only basic qualifications you need to fulfil are: 
- You are a student in Malmö University
- You are a member of the Student Union and ESN* 


(* ESN Malmö membership fee is only 30kr/year, and we will arrange it for you)
