Multiple roles supporting student advocacy open until May 29
May 21, 2019 at 12:00 pm
The positions of Advocacy Coordinator, as well as the Advocacy & Policy Research Assistant both play key roles inside the advocacy wing of the McMaster Students Union. Both roles are currently available, with the applications closing on May 29 at 11:59pm.
The MSU's advocacy efforts are a core pillar of the organization’s function. Through the Education Department, students lobby to the University and the City of Hamilton, along with both the provincial and federal governments to ameliorate the policies concerning post-secondary education. This is done through writing policy documents which identify the MSU's positions on certain topics, writing reports and submissions to decision makers around various jurisdictions, as well as in-person lobbying efforts and running advocacy campaigns.
The Advocacy Coordinator is responsible to coordinate campaigns, events, and logistics within the Education Department. This includes, but is not limited to, campaigns and events set out by the Vice President (Education), the Associate Vice Presidents (University Affairs, Municipal Affairs, and Provincial & Federal Affairs), and the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA).
The Advocacy & Policy Research Assistant is responsible to assist in the development of policy and research relating to advocacy work in the MSU including planning and analyzing primary and secondary research. The Advocacy & Policy Research Assistant is also responsible for leading the MSU policy development process by providing support to policy authors. The research may be used to develop written lobbying documents, including government submissions and other external publications.
Applications for both roles will remain open until May 29, 2019. The job descriptions and application details can be found here.
