About The Role

Arc Wellness strives to put students’ health and happiness first. Mental health is more important than ever before and one of the best ways we can improve mental health outcomes on campus is empower students to look out for one another. The Wellness Warriors program is all about promoting positive habits, developing the mental health literacy of the student community, and speaking to the unique challenges and pressures of the student experience. If you are passionate about student wellbeing, love the idea of leading a team of awesome people to make real impact – we’ve been waiting for you!

Who are We?

Arc is UNSW’s student organisation. We like to call ourselves the cool older sibling. We know that the best parts of going to uni is all the stuff you do outside the classroom, and we pride ourselves on making that experience awesome. We do that through a huge range of opportunities and services available to students online and in-person.

Working at Arc you’ll join a welcoming team of full of like-minded students, who believe in listening to students, working together and having fun between hard work. Work perks include professional development opportunities, the occasional work cake party, hot desk spaces, tickets to the Arc Annual Dinner, and more. But probably the best thing you’ll get out of working here are some friendships you’ll never forget.
