VOLUNTARY VACANCIES

Do you want to do EVS in Arnhem at the international Loesje office?

We are looking for two creative and motivated people to do European Voluntary Service (EVS) at the Loesje office for 12 months. EVS is a project of the European Commission and it means you can live for free in Arnhem, do society-committed work and enjoy life, if you are under 30. Regulations you can read below.

Who is Loesje?

Loesje is an idealistic organisation which aims for a creative society based on own initiative and active citizenship. The objective is to exchange ideas and opinions, to stimulate people to create their own ideas. Loesje mainly uses posters with short but strong texts (one-liners), which shine a different light on particular subjects. Our main activity is to create such posters, together with our members, as well as with people from other organisations. The posters are spread on the Internet, around the streets, in community centres, schools etc. The aims of the organisation are to spread black and white posters to colour life and to create possibilities, in which participants of Loesje activities can start and support progressive social initiatives.

Do you want to work one year for Loesje International in the Netherlands? We are searching for an enthusiastic and creative person to do European Voluntary Service(EVS) for Loesje at the International office in Arnhem, The Netherlands. EVS is a subsidised project of the European Commission and it means you can live for free in The Netherlands, do some useful and fun work for Loesje International and enjoy life (regulations you can read below).

The project will start on the 1th of September 2017 and will last until the 31th of August 2018. And it will be a great experience. At our office you will be working together with Stas, Luder, Maarten, Kaat and Ralph and ofcourse many of the other active people of Loesje Netherlands and Loesje International.

Accommodation will be arranged. You will get money for food and pocket money and a language course. The atmosphere at the office is informal, fun, busy but with is a lot of space to come up with new, own ideas. Support is present during the whole year yet we encourage self-initiative. An active attitude is essential in the work we do.

You can apply now but first read the regulations and selection criteria. If you have questions just ask us, no problem. One advice in case you know the people of the office, what you write to us is very important and not what you believe that we know of you. It's better to write more than to give too less information.
