Ruben Wijnen

IT Officer & Secretary

My name is Ruben Wijnen, this year I will be the IT Officer & Secretary. I am 23 years old and an Economics & Business Economics student. I grew up around here in Rotterdam and am loving my time here as a student, and this year of course, as a board member. During my time off I like to play fieldhockey, right nextdoor to the University, at Victoria. This coming year I look forward to developing my managerial skills, and continuing to strive for the best EFR, together with my fellow board members!

As IT Officer & Secretary I will make sure that the information structures of the EFR are solid and up-to-date. Not just for this year, but for many years to come. Information systems form the groundwork of a modern organisation like EFR, and much innovation is possible.

Specifically, I am responsible for managing large IT projects of EFR. Together with the Information Process Manager of STAR you will work on the long term strategy and further development of the Erasmus Recruitment Platform and you will manage the (new) EFR website.

Furthermore I think about how to use data in an effective and strategic manner. Besides this, I am responsible for the CRM-system, the shared file servers and other, EFR related websites.

Whilst I will focus on the IT projects, the IT Officer & Secretary is also responsible for Secretary tasks. These include the organisation of the General Member Assemblies, writing minutes of Board Meetings and the external communication of the association via EFR newsletters.

As IT Officer & Secretary, I strive to recognise the importance of information and be able to optimise its strategic value.
