Clubs and Societies – Volunteering

Volunteering with Clubs and Societies

Many clubs and societies involve volunteers participating in activities related to many great causes. This can include social justice, grassroots activism, community outreach, leadership, and social enterprise. Getting involved with a club or society is a great way to meet people, make a difference and learn new skills. Please note that these programs have their own transcript recognition pathways and program coordinators.

Marketing and Events Coordinator

For CO-OP
CO-OP is currently looking for a Marketing and Events Coordinator to plan and manage the outreach aspects of our Club! Here at CO-OP, we are dedicated to the craft of making games. We are a club set up to promote the creation of homegrown Video Games from Murdoch University students. Under close relation with the school of arts, hold student workshops on making games and work on large game projects as well as run game jam events. Since we do so much working, we don’t quite have time to focus on outreach. Since CO-OP is set up explicitly to bring students closer to industry, we thought why not give an actual marketing student some experience as well!
To apply, please email your CV and a short cover letter to us at coopgamedevclub@gmail.com
