We take pride in our brand and we go all out. This year, we have undergone a major revamp and we’re looking for creative and innovative individuals who are the best at what they do; who can express our vision and continue to take us higher. The Creative Department is one of the most exciting areas of the society and is what adds colour to WRM.

Operations and logistics are paramount to the success of our events. They are responsible for the flawless delivery of everything we envision and they keep in mind all of the small things that make an experience great. Furthermore, they oversee every aspect of event planning leading up to the event itself, hence they have strong organisational skills and know exactly what makes an event exceptionally successful. This includes carefully checking venue selections, supervising the booking of the rooms, minimising clashes with lectures and other major events, welcoming speakers, ordering food for events and a lot more. They coordinate quickly and communicate effectively to maintain efficiency throughout the whole process. Other qualities include attention to detail, works well under pressure and can think rationally under unforeseen circumstances.
No specific experience or skills required. But, the ideal person must know a lot about how most social media work and possess exceptional competency in the English language and the written word (ideally with a flair in copywriting).
As the voice of the society, you will be responsible for our online activities and will manage our social media accounts, adopting a consistent professional, yet youthful tone. You will plan, write, edit and improve short content and leverage your strong communicative abilities to present your ideas to students and generate excitement and momentum for our events and the society in general.
They know the difference between hyphens and dashes, know when the peak times are for posting and will always choose bullet points, where appropriate, just because it looks nicer. Bottom line: they are the masters of text formatting and are the social media pundits. Not only do they easily relate to the playful character of our audience, but through words, they reflect the exciting and forward-looking nature of the industries we function in.
No specific experience or skills required.
We are also interested in first year students who would like to be involved with the society through a more general 'fresher rep' role; assisting the society in many different ways when need be and rotating around different areas.
Your role may include assisting the society by generating hype for our events through social media and taking on some responsibilities for preparation of our events. Hence, you must be approachable and naturally charismatic. If you are a first year student who would like to get involved with the society, but do not necessarily feel as if the three areas above are suitable for you, we highly encourage you to apply for this post.
