Faculty & Staff: Hire Student Staff

Student Life can help you hire a student.

Student staff play an important role on the Memorial University campus. They contribute to the advancement of research, enrich teaching and learning through tutoring, enhance the administrative functions of the campus and promote a positive image of the university through excellent customer service.

On-campus jobs also provide lots of benefits to students. Students who work on campus are typically more engaged in all aspects of university life. They benefit from the professional development and mentoring that occurs when they work with faculty and staff.

New! Tips for Supervising Students Remotely

Are you managing students remotely? We recognize that it can be challenging to shift in-person student jobs to a remote environment and have created this tip sheet to help maximize the experience for both grant holders and student employee(s).

Student Life offers several programs to help you hire students.


 

Memorial's Undergraduate Career Experience Program (MUCEP)

A grant program that allows academic and administrative units to hire Canadian and international undergraduate students on campus for part-time jobs. Reflection is a mandatory component of MUCEP.


International Student Work Experience Program (ISWEP)

A grant program that allows academic and administrative units to hire undergraduate international students and English as a Second Language (ESL) students who possess a valid study permit for on-campus part-time jobs. Reflection is a mandatory component of ISWEP.


Student Work and Service Program (SWASP)

SWASP is funded by the provincial government of Newfoundland and Labrador and was designed to reduce the debt load of student parents. It offers a valuable work opportunity applicable to your program of study and career objectives as well as a tuition credit.


Graduate Student Work Experience Program (GradSWEP)

A grant program that allows academic and administrative units to hire graduate students.


Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ)

Canada Summer Jobs is an initiative that supports the creation of work experiences for youth through the provision of a wage subsidy to employers.

Student Life is no longer permitted to submit one application on behalf of the Memorial community. Therefore, faculties, schools or departments are responsible to submit their own individual applications if they wish to continue receiving the CSJ wage subsidy.

CSJ Information Sessions will be offered by Employment and Social Development Canada. For more information please see the links below.
