Suvi Liukkonen and Teemu Vasama Recruited as New Event Producer and Specialist in Academic Affairs

Student Union JYY’s new Event producer is Suvi Liukkonen. New Specialist in Academic Affairs is Teemu Vasama.

Liukkonen graduated as a cultural producer in 2016. After graduation she has run her own agent and management office. Liukkonen is also a member of the board in Central Finland’s Movie Association.

Vasama has been a Board Member in charge of Academic Affairs at the Student Union in 2016 and the Chairperson of the Board in 2017. In 2018, Vasama was the Board Member in charge of Academic Affairs at the National Union of the University Students in Finland.

JYY’s Executive Director Minna Oinas is pleased with the high level of all the job applicants. She is convinced that Liukkonen and Vasama will both strengthen the expertise at the Student Union office.

-I’m deeply satisfied with our new employees. I’m exited to work together with both of our new team members!, says Oinas.

Vasama thinks that it is great to be able to continue working for students and academic community and reminds that a lot will happen in the next two years:

-Curricula will be reformed and opportunities for life long learning will be increased. And we must not forget about the parliamentary elections. It is important that we students are actively involved in influencing the future of academic education, Vasama sums his own views.

Liukkonen in her part is really exited to begin in her new duties.

-I have studied and worked closely on higher education but University is it’s own world and many of it’s traditions are still new to me. Still, I’m really exited to start in my new position.

Vasama will replace Joachim Kratochvil, who will be on a study leave for two years starting from 1 February.
