The Students’ Union is hiring! Now that the epic SU General Election is done we can talk to you about other AMAZING ways to get involved with the SU! Along with our elected officials, we have a whole army of student staff who get to work with students in unique ways like running events and organizing volunteer programs.

The Students’ Union is guided by three pillars: quality of student life, quality of education, and accessibility. All of our student jobs contribute to these goals in different ways that let you have an impact on campus and gain amazing experience.

Program and Events Assistants get to organize the weekly events on campus like Cinemania and Yoga in the Space, larger events like Frostbite and Stress Less Week (puppies!), as well as learn administrative tasks that will give you a professional edge. It’s definitely a job that keeps you on your toes, but we like it that way. You never know what could happen when you are organizing an event; this year our team was given a coffin during Frostbite- clearly one of the best jobs ever.

Research Assistants provide administrative, research, and analytical support and works with the SU Policy Analyst. It’s an amazing opportunity to develop skills that are crucial to careers relevant to policy and when you’ve got policy skills, everyone will worship you.

Want to be involved with our elections, but running for office isn’t your thing? The Chief Returning Officer (CRO) administers all elections for the SU from communicating with students to organizing all-candidates meetings. If you have a passion for student politics this is a great way to be involved and get practical experience! If you want to be in the very heart of decisions in the Students’ Legislative Council, the Deputy Speaker presides over SLC meetings, ensures equal opportunity for discussion and debate, and maintains the integrity of the working relationships of SLC. You’ll be front and center in student politics with this job!

All of our jobs are flexible with your class schedules, provide amazing work experiences, and connect students with similar interests for lasting friendships. Truly, the best thing about these jobs is the impact you have on students across campus through your work. Through an SU student staff position you’ll be involved in the university community and connected to all sorts of students from every corner of campus! Applications are open NOW so check out our Get Involved page for how to apply!
