Keep calm, because I’m running for Treasurer

RUW foundation is making moves. Recently we have welcomed new blood in two key positions – a new communications officer and junior coordinator. But, the search is not over, as we are still actively searching for a skilled Treasurer.

We have learned that being the treasurer is one of the most – if not the most – challenging position in our foundation. A good treasurer really is the basic premise for the sustainability and flourishing of RUW. Therefore we are inviting anyone with with the ambition to take full responsibility to apply for this function.

On our ‘Vacancies’ page you can find all the details about our ‘call for’ a treasurer – your responsibility, the profile we are looking for, and what we offer you.

If interested please send your CV’s + short motivation letters to Or get in touch with our chair Mark van der poel

We are looking forward to meeting you!
