What will you do? 

As Council assistant you will work closely with our council members, Municipal executive and the group support, advising on all matters concerning the physical domain. This domain includes topics such as building a new student campus, improving the accessibility of Maastricht and waste policy. As Council assistant you attend the monthly domain meetings, read relevant policy documents, engage in discussions with stakeholders and make sure you are up to date with the latest developments in the city. Your findings and advice are fed back to our council members in the weekly group meeting. In this way you have a direct influence on the city's policy!

What can we offer you? 

Above all, we offer the opportunity to work with our Council group to build a future-proof Maastricht for everyone who calls our city their home. You will join a close, driven, diverse and young team. In the team, personal development and pleasant cooperation are key. Curiosity and ambition are key, (political) experience is not a requirement. An ideal opportunity to develop yourself and learn what it is like to be politically active.

What does Volt mean to us?

Volt is a European political movement active in 30 countries. We are at the European, national, regional and local level. Volt aims to make the whole of Europe more social, more democratic and more decisive, through positive, progressive and pragmatic politics. In Maastricht we focus on creating a Maastricht for all its citizens, while grasping cross-border opportunities with both hands.
