About the roles
The Clubs & Volunteering Department serves students through volunteer programs, Clubs and activities. The Clubs & Grants Officers’ core function is to provide support that enables students to engage and participate in a wide variety of non-academic interests and activities (in particular through involvement with Arc-affiliated Clubs). The Clubs & Grants Officers work closely as a team, in addition to working closely with other staff within the Clubs & Volunteering team.
Who are we?
Arc is the student organisation at UNSW dedicated to making #unilyf the best it can possibly be. We know that your time at university is pretty short, so we want every bit of it to be a blast!
Behind all the incredible Clubs, countless volunteering opportunities, sporting adventures, Roundhouse good times and the eclecticism of Arc at UNSW Art & Design, is a team that is passionate about delivering a great student experience.
It's the kind of place where we build castles around people's desk's for birthdays, have a pretty bad netball team, eat cake and Friday happy hours start at 5pm (ok... 4.45pm). We work hard. We expect results (but we have fun doing it).
Together the team of Clubs and Grants Officers support and engage Arc Clubs & Societies through a variety of different avenues throughout the year. Responsibilities include
Maintaining a thorough working knowledge of Arc policies and procedures relating to Clubs & Grants
Assessing and processing grant and Club affiliation applications
Providing training and advice to Clubs on areas including grant applications, affiliation and other Arc procedures, event management and administration
Provide support to Clubs running collaborative events as part of the Clubs Mashup/Clubs Taster initiative
Attend to tasks and enquiries at the Clubs Space front desk during weekly scheduled shifts
Attending Club Events

Assisting with department events and activities, including O-Week and the Club Awards Dinner
Assist with administration tasks and maintenance of the Clubs Space and Clubs Storeroom
