The Students’ Union has many paid, volunteer, and intern opportunities for Mount students. Come by the Students’ Union any time to inquire about these positions or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Elected Positions (Executives and SRC)
There are four executive positions through the Students’ Union. These are the President, Vice-President Communications, Vice-President Student Life, and Vice-President Advocacy. Each position is paid and executives work 25-35 hours a week (depending on the position) to deal with the day to day operations of the Students’ Union.
There are also 13 elected students who sit on the Students’ Representative Council (SRC) along with the Executive Team. Each student represents a different demographic on the Mount campus and acts as the Board of Directors for the organization. SRC meetings are held on a bi-weekly basis and representatives are paid an honourarium at the end of every semester.
Elections happen every year in March online through MyMount. You must be entering your third year or higher of post-secondary education to be eligible to run.
Management and part-time work
The Students’ Union employs many student management positions and part-time student staff each coming year. Some of these positions include Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Marketing and Promotions Manager, Wellness Centre Manager, Assistant Food & Beverage Manager, The Hub Manager, 2 Fountain Play Centre Managers, and more! As well, we also employ students to work part-time at the Crow N’ Go Snack Bar, Vinnie’s Pub, and The Hub! Recognizing that you are a student first, we can work our schedule around your classes! Check the job postings page frequently for any openings!
Seasonal Work (Summer only or less than 4 months)
Some of our positions are only needed for a short period of time, such as the Shinerama Coordinator or the Sponsorship Coordinator, which are only available from May to August. Along with the summer positions, the Used Textbook Fair employees students during the first 3-4 weeks of every term. Check the job postings page frequently for any openings!
With such a large amount to do and such limited human resources, the Students’ Union is ALWAYS looking for volunteers. Volunteering is a great way to meet new students, strengthen your CCRP and resume, or use as a stepping stone for other positions within the Union. Volunteering opportunities include:
– Being an Orientation Leader
– Organizing and/or being in the Haunted House
– Being a part of the President’s Street Team
– Helping out with the Wellness Centre and Wellness Pantry
– Helping to care for the kids at the Fountain Play Centre
– Working the SU Elections
