Frequently asked questions
Which role is right for me?
There are five main teams in the OxWIB Committee: Events, Sponsorship, Marketing, Mentorship and Membership.
What are the benefits of joining the committee?
Joining the committee is a fantastic way to get experience in teamwork, leadership, organisation and business skills, as well as the chance to contribute to exciting and meaningful work with getting women into business. There's also guaranteed tickets to our highly anticipated termly President's drinks, networking opportunities, stash and priority places at OxWIB socials and dinners with inspirational speakers!
How does the application process work?
To apply, you will need to fill out a google application form and attach your CV around 5th week. You will be able to select your preferred position and a backup option.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
What happens if I am not appointed to the position I applied for?
While you are welcome to indicate a preference on your application form, you will be considered for all roles available. For example, if you applied for Marketing Director, you may be offered a position as Marketing Representative instead.
Who can apply?
Application is open to all current female identifying and non-binary students at the University of Oxford. We welcome students from any year, undergraduate and graduate, as well as any subject area.
I don't have much experience - can I still apply?
Of course! We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and experience levels.
What makes a good application?
For the written application, detail is helpful! Give evidence about what you’ve achieved and point out any specific contributions or improvements that you made. For example, it's better to say that you negotiated with a local venue and pushed down the price by X amount, than just to say that you were responsible for putting on your school prom.
How much time commitment is being on committee?
Applications operate on a termly basis, but most members of committee will have at least some work to do during the vacation. All the work is organised online so there's no need to be in Oxford or in the UK - previous committee members have worked from everywhere during the vacations, from South America to Australia.
