Let’s make the educational programme unforgettable for children. Together we will elevate education!
The core team is responsible for keeping an overview of the whole project. There are positions open for team manager, treasurer, business manager, and education manager. These functions will take about 15-20 hours per week.
Are you the person to lead the Da Vinci Satellite team? Do you want to be the face of the team and ensure that the team can perform optimally? We are looking for a team manager that can lead the team, communicate well, and present the project as a whole to the outside world. You will be ultimately responsible for the entire project, have contact with media and partners, and are involved with everyone on the team.
Have you always been interested in interaction with companies and media? Do you have the best sales pitch and a vision for the right strategy? We are looking for a business manager to manage the business team.
As business manager you are responsible for contact with current partners and sponsors. Also, the search for new possible partners is one of the responsibilities. In addition, you will be involved in public relations, aiming to reach as many schools as possible within the Netherlands and beyond.
Are you enthusiastic about teaching the youth about space and technology? Do you have a clear vision of how educational programmes are most fun and educative? We are looking for an education manager to lead the primary and secondary school teams in developing the educational programmes.
You will be responsible for keeping an overview of the progress of both modules and the integration of the satellite within the programme. Next to that, you will be responsible for setting up a plan on how to implement our modules in the schools.
Are you enthusiastic about inspiring children about space and technology? Then join the education team! These positions will take about 5-8 hours per week.
The education team consists of two different groups, one focussing on the primary school module and the other on the secondary school module. Both teams mainly focus in creating the content of the educational programmes and getting in contact with schools and teachers. In addition, you will be responsible for the contact with our education partners, like the Spacebuzz project of André Kuipers.
Of course, managing all external contact is quite the task for the business manager. Therefore, the business team will give support by helping with managing the partnership and public relations. These positions will take about 5-8 hours per week.
Within the business team, there are two kind of positions available: partnership relations manager and public relations manager. Multiple people will fill these positions. Where the partnership relations managers are responsible for contact with current partners and sponsors, but also for finding new ones, the public relations managers are responsible for outreach by keeping social media up to date, writing press releases, and finding new ways to put the Da Vinci Satellite project in the spotlight.
