Vacancy Secretary

Stichting Boerengroep is looking for a secretary (4-5 hours a week),

starting from September 2020.



Stichting Boerengroep aims to close the gap between agriculture at the university and the reality and challenges of farmers and peasants around the world. It fights for a social, just and sustainable food production via activities in which we stimulate a critical view among farmers and students. Boerengroep organizes excursions, lectures, dialogues, workshops, movie screening, and a four-week long summer course about agroecology.

  • Keeping overview of Boerengroep administration
  • Assisting in the organisation of Boerengroep activities
  • Assisting in the composition of the year plan and year report
  • If possible, helping to organise activities with the other Boerengroep board members.

As secretary, you are automatically part of the board of Boerengroep. Together with the other board members, you represent Boerengroep’s vision and goals and you decide what Boerengroep organises.


What do we offer:

  • Network opportunities in the agricultural sector
  • Opportunities to develop your communication and organisational skills
  • A yearly compensation of about €300 (one FOS month)
  • Lots of fun during the board meetings and the activities of Boerengroep!
