SRMUN Staff Application
Job Description:
Director and Assistant Director:
The substantive staff (Directors and Assistant Directors) are the backbone of SRMUN conferences. Staff members for the next conference are generally hired 1-2 months after the preceding conference. In conjunction with the Directors-General, both Directors and Assistant Directors will select committee topics and compose topic outlines, summaries, background guides and updates. The writing process typically begins 8 months before the conference and continues for the next several months, growing more intensive. Directors must attend a staff-training weekend usually scheduled about 4 months before the conference. After that, committee staff composes updates and evaluates position papers. At the conference, Directors and Assistant Directors serve as the chief substantive officers of their committees, facilitating the learning process obtain at SRMUN. Although previous Chair or Rapporteur experience is preferred, it is not required.

This is a full year commitment. Please carefully consider this before applying for SRMUN Staff.
