You will be well trained and supported in your role, and realistically remunerated.

We are seeking capable and confident senior tertiary students (Undergraduate or Postgraduate) who relate well to others and preferably have had experience of living in a residential college.

This is a paid, part-time position, of 40 hours per fortnight.
