PSAC Student Assistants I-IV Job Descriptions

Here is an inventory of the current PSAC Student Assistant jobs.

This list includes a wide range of jobs held across campus.  If you don’t see the job title matching exactly to the position in your area, please look at job descriptions that may be similar  before going through the process to have a job description evaluated.  If the nature of duties, range of skills, and level of qualifications are similar, the new job title can be added to an existing job description.

For instance, a Lab Assistant I has a number of alternate job titles; Lab Demonstrator, Lab Teaching Assistant or Demonstration Assistant.   You may be looking to hire a  Biology Lab Teaching Assistant.  That position would fall under the Lab Assistant I job description and the job title can easily be added to it.

If you wish to create a new position and are unsure about its classification, please refer to the following Student Assistant I-IV Qualifications Overview as it outlines the relevant general qualifications for each classification.

There could be an existing position with similar duties to a position for which you want to hire, with some notable differences.  By using that existing job description, it will help you to properly determine the classification for the new position.  For example, you might be creating a Student Marketing Assistant position.   There currently exists a Social Media Assistant (SAII) position.  The position you are seeking to fill must be able to use  social media channels but will also incorporate other avenues for marketing.  You can use the Social Media Assistant job description to guide you as you create a job description for the Marketing Assistant SAII position.

For  positions that do not align with an existing job description, a PSAC Job Description Evaluation (fillable) will need to be completed by the hiring manager and sent to Human Resources for review.
