Open Positions for Oxford Students  

OISAP offers several employment opportunities for all full-time degree students at Oxford as Orientation Team Leaders (OTLs), mainly in January, February, July and August every year. Please contact us at regarding the recruitment and selection process for each position. Positions are part-time, and tasked at 10-20 hours per week.


OTL positions represent a valuable opportunity in your university life to cultivate and improve your leadership, public speaking, mentoring and team coaching skills, in addition to event planning.


OTLs are expected to serve as positive role models to our programme participants. They push the programme’s academic mission with maturity and responsibility, familiarising the participants with campus resources whilst enthusiastically tackling any questions or issues that arise. They also serve as mentors during our programme, working closely with the programme administrator to ensure smooth day to day operations, assist students during seminars and group discussions, provide them with necessary resources, and organise informative, relaxing activities during breaks, and field study visits.
