LUNIK STAFF POSITIONS 2012-2013


Lunik Co-operative is looking for Glendon students to fill  6 part-time positions to operate Lunik Co-op for the 2012-2013 school year. These positions require a time commitment, belief in co-operative values and dedication to Lunik’s mission to create a safe and sustainable cafe for students. The six positions include: Two Co-ordinators, Social Space Chair, Finances Chair, Environment and Facilities Chair and Volunteer Chair. Although each position has very specific tasks, each staff works in cooperation with one another to further the overall mandate of Lunik and principles of cooperation.

Honorariums are payed after detailed inventory of work done is present at an open monthly meeting between co-ordinators and any other Lunik members interested in attending. Honorarium is contingent on this inventory being filled out and passed by members attending. Co-ordinator positions may have a small variance in pay based on slow months and busier months (ex. Co-ordinators at the begining of the 2012/13 school year will be busier, garden/maintenance busier in fall/spring than during winter months)

Please see each post for a description of tasks, hours and compensation.

To apply, please submit a resume and cover letter (with a bit of info about why Lunik is important to you, what you imagine for the 2012/13 school year and why you want to work as a co-ordinator) to Lunik.Cooperative@gmail.com.
