What does the Wijkwijzer do?
The Wijkwijzer helps residents in Utrecht NoordOost to find their way in the neighbourhood, in what is available. We do this with an online platform, by helping fellow residents in person, by email or by telephone and through theme meetings with partners.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a neighbor with a heart for the neighborhood and an eye for differences in the neighborhood. Someone with administrative experience and a warm network in the city and district, or who can quickly build it up. Someone who actively thinks along and participates and can fulfill an ambassador function. An enterprising manager who also rolls up his sleeves to give the Wijkwijzer a solid foundation. In short, an active person who wants to commit to 8 hours a month for at least three years.
The board ensures a solid foundation, ensures continuity of the organization, determines the strategy, regularly consults with the core team of volunteers and supervises the implementation. The board acts as a sounding board for the core team.
The board determines the division of tasks together and appoints a chairman and secretary from among its members. The secretary is responsible for the reporting of meetings and decisions and the correspondence of the board. The chairman leads the board, sets the agenda and leads the meetings. In coordination with the core team, the chairman acts as the figurehead of the Wijkwijzer. The areas of attention of a general manager are determined in consultation. A specific description is available for the position of treasurer. The board makes mutual agreements about internal and external representation and mutual replacement.
