Employment Opportunities with the MGA

A range of employment opportunities arise at the MGA throughout each year. We run a graduate student employment program for Monash students who wish to work a flexible job whilst studying. We also employ professional staff in various career capacities to be part of the MGA team.

If you’re interested in working for the MGA, keep an eye on this page as well as Seek for current vacancies. Graduate student positions will be advertised through our social media pages and the MGA fortnightly newsletter.

Graduate Employment Program

Launched in 2016, the MGA graduate employment program was created to provide on-campus work opportunities for current Monash graduate students. We recognise that finding a job which fits around an ever-changing university schedule can be difficult. Our graduate employment program recruits graduate students at the campus or off-campus site where they are based and allows for flexibility in the work schedule.

We currently hire graduate students in the following casual positions:

  • Receptionists (Clayton and Caulfield)
  • Events Assistants (AMREP, SPHPM and MMC)
  • Social Media Assistants (Caulfield)
  • Research Assistants (Clayton)
  • Student Representatives Assistants (Clayton)
  • Accounts Payable Officer (Clayton)

Would you like to be the first to know when we have a job available? Log in with your student account at the top-right corner just once to sign up for the MGA newsletter.

Professional staff

The MGA currently employs a team of 23 professional staff members who follow the direction of our student Executive Committee to create and run the MGA’s amazing services.

We operate out of two central offices located on the Clayton and Caulfield campuses, as well as desks at the Parkville and Peninsula campuses. Our staff will often travel to various locations to engage with and support graduate students as required.

Positions within the MGA become available from time-to-time and are listed below. If you would like to work with us as a contracted or permanent staff member, please read our job ads and apply! We’d love to hear from you.

The MGA is an independent, not-for-profit association governed by graduate students, for graduate students. Our primary aim is to be there for you!
