Gefle Student Union is a workplace that offers you a year of exciting and valuable experiences, while also providing you with the opportunity to grow. It's a chance to continue improving and strengthening both student life and students' study situation in Gävle.

Working at a student union is a rewarding experience where there's always something happening and always someone to socialize with.

As a salaried employee at the union, you receive a monthly salary, a wellness allowance of 2000 SEK, and 25 days of paid leave. Additionally, you get to keep your student accommodation and enjoy student discounts through the Mecenat card while working at the union.
