What is O’Diako like in 2024? Do you want to influence student affairs both at our university and more broadly? How should O’Diako be present in a student's everyday life? Are you diligent and ready to work for a better O’Diako?


O’Diako is organizing a supplementary application for the board until the end of 2024!


We want to complement our board and are looking for committed and motivated students to join our activities. We are particularly looking for individuals who want to bring new ideas and perspectives to our operations.

  • Both teamwork skills and the ability to work independently.

  • Monthly reports, as well as a flexible attitude towards working both in Finnish and English.

  • Participation in O’Diako's activities does not typically accumulate compensated absences.


The term for the board members selected through the supplementary application process will begin in May 2024 and end at the end of the year. Orientation will be provided in the spring of 2024.
