Become a JADE Executive board member
The Executive Board is the highest management body of the Junior Enterprise network. It works in Brussels in the JADE Headquarters for a timeframe of one year (August 1st to July 31st).
The recruitment usually happens around March. If you are a Junior Entrepreneur who wants to gain top management experience at European level, improve soft and technical skills, get better in resource, strategic and project management, team work and presentations, work and live in a multicultural environment JADE is the place for you!
Become a JADE Project Manager
As a Project Manager, you will work on a project aiming to develop and improve the European Confederation. Your Project will be defined by the ExBo’s strategy – but please do not hesitate to share your ideas, they are precious to us! You will work with the ExBo member responsible for your department. You will be a part of JADE team: as such, you are expected to be a positive team player, show commitment and to be reliable. If you want to be part of the adventure and start an unforgettable experience, apply and join us!
Living in Brussels
Brussels is an old European city with lovely parks and secret little streets. You can find a wide variety of cultural activities and many international people. The HQ in Brussels, the capital of Europe, helps JADE to be closer to the European Institutions and some other international Headquarters of companies, which support our Network. The geographic location makes traveling around Europe really easy. The JADE Executive Board and some Project Managers live in Brussels in the JADE HQ. During the stay in JADE HQ, the Team members have to share the space with other people, who also work and live there (ExBo, Assistants or other Project Managers), as well as with guests from the Network.
If you are not able to come and live in Brussels, for certain positions, staying with us in JADE HQ is not mandatory and you can work from your home country while keeping studying or working. Obviously, you are more than welcome to join JADE’s Events and JADE House whenever you wish! Although, you will be part of the Team just as any other PM, and by such we expect from you the same level of reactivity and commitment. Project Managers working remotely are allowed to be committed in their JE’s Board, but not in their National Confederation Board. Follow the calls, we recruit Project Manages around September and January, but we are also looking forward to any spontaneous application!
Becoming JADE ExBo gave me the unique opportunity to feel empowered to use all my skills, drive and passion to represent the unique network changemakers. Moreover, I was able to see my strengths, weaknesses and build upon these with the support of a team driven by enthusiasm and self-believe.
I recommend this opportunity to anyone, who believes that individuals can make a difference, and that hard work and passion are the main elements to find solutions. Junior Enterprises represent this!
In both cases it was definitely worth it!
Being a remote project manager allows you to be still really active in the movement you love. The fact that what you do is completely different than what you used to do in your JE is even more motivating because you don't go into routine and you feel that you are acting in another scale. As enlargement project manager I could be connected to Brazil, Croatia, Ivory Cost and Australia from my student room.
This status has the benefit that you can keep your normal activities.
By being Brussels based you really live in JADE's soul and make it vibers. You are in the center where everything is happening which pushes you up in a good way. You never know what tomorrow will be made of!
