Swinburne Student Union (SSU) is looking to recruit an Event and Volunteers Officer to implement University wide social events and cultural activities, incorporating the support of student representatives and volunteers.
About Swinburne Student Union
SSU is an independent Incorporated Association delivering services, activities and representation for all higher education and vocational education and training students enrolled with Swinburne University of Technology.
Formally recognized by Swinburne University, SSU receives a portion of its annual funding through the Student Services and Amenities Fee, and further generates its own additional revenues through commercial activities, services and enterprises.
Working as part of a small yet vibrant team of professional staff, the Event and Volunteers Officer is responsible for planning, implementing and administering a range of social events and cultural activities within the annual SSU calendar. A key component within this role involves recruiting, developing and scheduling SSU’s team of volunteers to attend and help in delivering these activities and events. Another focus is to provide support and guidance to events planned by the elected Student Representatives, ensuring they are well coordinated, promoted and increasingly successful.
Typical events coordinated by SSU throughout the year include free daily student breakfasts and weekly BBQ’s, trivia and comedy night in the Hammer & Swine bar, O-Week and Welcome-Back-Week street-stalls and social parties, as well as special one-off activities supporting themed initiatives such as RUOK Day, Pride, and Cultural Diversity celebrations.
It is expected that the Officer will participate in other customer service, administration and financial activities as part of the broader SSU organization.
