Stephan van Eijndhoven

Hi everyone, my name is Stephan van Eijndhoven. This year I am the IT Officer and Secretary of the 57th EFR board. After growing up in the United States, the Netherlands and Belgium, I decided to study IBEB and Law in Rotterdam. During my studies I have joined several student associations, worked at a scale-up and went on exchange to Peru. At EFR I was part of the IBEB committee, the commercial team and the consulting committee. These experiences have triggered me to apply for a board year. It is a privilege to spend a year on personal development and improving my soft skills together with a team of seven other motivated students.

As the IT Officer, 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. Specifically this year, I am responsible for the successful launch of a new recruitment platform and the long-term strategy of Erasmus Recruitment.

In my function of Secretary, I organise the General Members Assemblies, write minutes during meetings and facilitate all communication to EFR members and alumni. So, now you know who sends you that monthly newsletter!

I get to be involved in almost all events, projects and committees, which makes this position both challenging and rewarding. As IT Officer & Secretary it is important to embrace an innovative mindset, possess strong problem-solving skills and have a strategic perspective on EFR.
