ACADEMIC BRANCH

 

DIRECTOR

Committees exist thanks to the creativity and passion of our director teams. You’ll be in charge of creating a background guide for your committee, and orchestrating its design and flow from the ground up. If you’ve ever wanted near limitless creative power and the ability to bring your ideas to life, this is the job for you! Please remember to specify whether you’re interested in helping in a GA, Specialist or Crisis committee in your application!

Key Work and Responsibilities:

  • Adaptability and creativity - for writing those amazing background guides!

  • Organisation and management - for overseeing your entire team and offering good judgement

  • Leading and speaking - for inspiring not just your team, but your delegates as well!

 

crisis MANAGER

We’re looking for creative masterminds that can adapt to situations and prompts at a moments notice. Crisis managers are responsible for managing the flow of crisis, bringing delegates together or pushing them apart at key moments. You’ll work in tandem with your crisis analysts to sow chaos or peace. Because of the nature of this job, previous MUN experience is recommended.

Key Skills and Responsibilities:

  • Adaptability and creativity - someone's gotta think of creative ways to mess with delegates!

  • Organisation and communication - you're going to be overseeing your ENTIRE crisis team. No pressure.

  • Computer competency - you're going to need to use spreadsheets, word docs, pictures, all in the name of organizing your chaos!

VICE DIRECTOR

Never done MUN before but still want to help out with a director role? We got you covered with the perfect position for those that want to manage, but aren’t quite ready for the manager role yet. You’ll be working closely alongside your director and creative team to create the perfect committee. Please remember to specify whether you’re interested in helping in a GA, Specialist or Crisis Committee in your application!

Key Skills and Responsibilities:

  • Adaptability and creativity - you're gonna need to handle whatever is thrown at you!

  • Organisation and management - every team needs a secondary leader!

  • Speaking and understanding - you will be the link between the team and your leader!

 

CRISIS ANALYST

Let’s be honest here. If you’re here to “assassinate” delegates, this is the job for you. The role of crisis analyst revolves around you messing up committee session at the expense of all the delegates. You’ll have a hand in orchestrating crisis with your manager and director teams, but you’ll be the ones to analyze notes from delegates and determine proper actions. Be prepared to carryout your crisis situations!

Key Skills and Responsibilities:

  • Creativity and speaking - you're the creator and instrument behind your crisis plans. Be ready!

  • Communication and co-operation - you and your team are going to be tight as glue over the conference! Co-operation is a must!

  • Adaptability and computer competency - you okay with switching documents or changing the rules a little bit? You'll be ready for anything!

 

 
 

moderators

You’re going to be at the helm of committee sessions, steering your committee from its uneventful beginning to its dramatic ending. You’ll also be working really closely alongside your director and crisis teams to organize chaos and create co-operation at key moments of committee session. Moderators are the prime connection between delegates, committee, and the rest of the team.

Key Skills and Responsibilities:

  • Communication and speaking - as the primary speaker during committee session, you'll need to engage and immerse your delegates in a story woven by the director and his team. Great chance to release your inner Morgan Freeman!

  • Computer competency - you're going to need to be on top of everything, and that requires being able to deal with technology with ease. It will also help with showing your delegates visualizations.

  • Understanding and adaptability - no one knows how committee session will unfold, not even you! Your mission is to make sure every transition and change is dealt with as smoothly as possible
