HOW DO I BECOME A SUB-COMMITTEE MEMBER?

ASA recruits Sub-Committee members at the beginning of semesters 1 and 2 each year. To keep track of opening dates for applications to join our team, students are advised to like and follow our Facebook page.

As part of our recruitment process, candidates must first complete an online application which can be found once recruitment opens. A select number of individuals may then progress to the interview stage, after which our HR team will contact the successful candidates.

HOW DO I BECOME AN EXECUTIVE?

Sub-Committee members who show strong commitment and capabilities in their role may progress to an Executive position in the subsequent semesters with positions being filled during our AGM at the end of each year.
