ABOUT THE STUDENTS’ UNION

The Students’ Union (SU) is one of the leading undergraduate student associations in Canada. We are a not-for-profit organization that works to ensure that University of Calgary undergraduate students have the best possible university experience through advocacy, representation, and providing valuable on-campus services and programs. We also manage several businesses within the MacEwan Student Centre including a restaurant and bar, two concert venues, a convenience store, a used bookstore and copy centre, and the MacEwan Conference & Event Centre.

We’re in the business of student leadership, and so SU staff are all teachers in some capacity. We coach, mentor, and work alongside the elected members of our student government to help them develop skills and make good decisions for the organization. As such, the SU is a nimble and leading-edge organization that can pivot quickly to address emerging issues and trends.

The SU offers all our employees a competitive, market-determined salary. Our benefits, though, tend to exceed the market. These include:

  • Five weeks paid vacation, to start
  • Unlimited paid sick time
  • A six percent RRSP matching program
  • Full health and dental benefits plus a health spending account
  • A mission-driven culture that values work-life balance, diverse experiences, and kindness

People love working for the SU because we care about our employees and empower them to thrive and succeed. The result is a very low turnover and a long-serving staff who are passionate about what they do. If you’re tired of being treated like a cog in a machine and want to do something that matters without sacrificing your home life, the SU might just be the right fit for you.
