Joris van Beek

Hi everyone, my name is Joris van Beek. I am the IT & Strategy Officer of the 59th EFR board. I grew up living in the Netherlands, UAE, China and the USA, and decided to return to my roots to study in Rotterdam. I joined EFR during my second year of IBEB. I started off as part of the Activities Committee, organising big events like the Speaker Cycle and getting to attend the EenVandaag Election Debate. The year after I joined the Involve Consultancy Committee, where I got the chance to organise a research project with the UN Refugee Agency, which included field research in Uganda. These great experiences are the reason I signed up for this amazing board year.

The IT part of my function means, I am responsible for all the information structures within EFR. Information systems form the groundwork of professional organisations like EFR and much can still be innovated. From implementing tools to improve the efficiency of the board to leading strategic long-term projects with many stakeholders, my goal is to optimize the strategic value of information.

My daily tasks include managing all EFR websites, supervising the Data Officers of the Erasmus Recruitment Board & the Master Career Week and setting up my own projects. These projects range from updating the CRM system to analysing our data.

As IT & Strategy Officer it is important to embrace an innovative mindset, possess strong problem-solving skills and have a strategic perspective on EFR. 

If you want to know more about my position or about EFR, please do not hesitate to contact me, or come by the office for a cup of coffee!
