KY is looking for Task Forces!

Do you want to be a part of building the best student experience through our community?

Last year KY’s Representative Council created a code of conduct for a Task Force system that will supervise the four strategic key projects of KY. The general goal of the Task Forces is to bring continuity and offer expertise for each initiative.

Task Force members are chosen for one year with an option to continue for another year. Task Force meetings are held once a month throughout the year. The chairs of the task forces will be KY Board members or members with previous experience on the subject matter

1. New Premises

What will be the home for business students for the next 100 years? Building a new home for our members in Otaniemi is the single biggest task facing KY in the following years.  Also, while the future of KY Building in Töölö still remains unknown, the main goal is for it to remain in KY’s ownership and create student housing once again.

 

The goal for this Task Force is to
  • Act as the steering group of the New Premises project on behalf of KY
  • Oversee and advance the design and construction of the new premises
  • Make and approve operational decisions regarding the project

 

The Task Force will compose of
  • Chairman of the KY Board
  • Vice Chairman of the KY Board
  • Chairman of the KY Foundation
  • Secretary General
  • 1-5 recruited members

 

What is expected from the members

Members of the Task Force should have been strongly participating in the project in the past or have experience in real estate business.

2. Digital KY

KY is heading towards digitalizing its services. The areas that are focused on are the KY App, member services (for example KY van, spaces and services for clubs), and the new premises (for example shared services). Both strategic and operational decisions will be based on data, facts and statistics rather than opinions and assumptions.

 

The goal for this task force is to
  • Oversee the projects, their schedules and funding
  • Develop KY’s digital services, main focus being on KY App
  • Develop and maintain KY’s key performance indicators and data analytics

 

The Task Force will compose of
  • KY Board Member responsible for Communications
  • KY Board Member
  • IT Coordinator
  • 2-6 recruited members

 

What is expected from the members

Members of the Task Force should have experience in mobile application development, design and data-analytics.

3. Societal Impact

KY wants to position itself as an opinion leader in Finland when it comes to educational policy regarding business studies. Tracking our brand’s performance and partnering with the school, experts and companies like aTalent will make it possible to become a fearless straight-talker, who is seen and heard. By examining the use of communications agencies we will build strong ties to business media.

 

The goal for this task force is to
  • Manage KY’s external brand and make it better
  • Influence education policy
  • Implement projects of large scale

 

The task force will compose of
  • Chairman of the KY Board
  • KY Board member
  • 3-7 members

 

What is expected from the members

Members of the Task Force should have experience in cooperation with media and communications agencies, experience in education policy influencing and experience in political influencing. 

4. Lean Organization

How could we structure our organization the most cost-efficient and strategically sound way? The main focus is finding cost saving regarding our biggest expense, which is personnel costs, while making sure enough funds are allocated to strategic initiatives and KY associations’ subsidies.

 

The goal for this task force is to
  • Make decisions keeping an eye on the Student Centre
  • Discover ways to lower expenses inside KY and its functions
  • Oversee KY’s budget regarding subsidies for KY’s associations, continued funding for strategic initiatives and cost reductions in personnel costs

 

The task force will compose of
  • Chairman of the KY Board
  • KY Board member
  • Secretary General
  • 2-6 recruited members

 

What is expected from the members

Members of the Task Force should have been working in the KY Office or e.g. in HR.

 

Relevant experience of the subject matter is the main requirement for the composition of the Task Forces. Members of the Task Forces can be current or former KY members.
