Huron is unique to post-secondary institutions in Canada. With the aim to redefine Liberal Arts education, Huron is creating a university experience unlike any other that prioritizes ethical leadership and community engagement, as much as the pursuit of academic achievement.  

As the founding college of Western University, since 1863, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. We provide an elite, yet accessible, education, because every student with the passion and work ethic to positively change our world deserves to access the knowledge to understand it and the skills to shape it. Huron’s mission is to develop Leaders with Heart from all backgrounds and foster a vibrant and inclusive community and prepare students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within. Our commitment to providing the best possible Liberal Arts education means students have many unique opportunities to enrich their learning experiences.


The Faculty of Arts and Social Science at Huron University College is seeking an organized and efficient individual with a commitment to service excellence and demonstrated success in an administrative assistant role to join our team as Program Assistant, Faculty of Arts and Social Science.  This role provides wide-ranging administrative support to the academic department heads and program directors, instructors and students within the Faculty of Arts and Social Science.  Specific supports include course management (including e-learning practices), policy adherence, examination administration, technical support and training and administrative support.  

This is a full-time contract position to commence in July 2024 with an approximate end date of August 2025.


  • Completed Undergraduate degree from an accredited postsecondary institution, preferably in the Liberal Arts;
  • A minimum of three (3) years experience in a fast-paced, administrative support role, preferably in a post-secondary or educational setting;
  • Knowledge of the academic programs and disciplines taught within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Huron University;
  • Experience/knowledge of PeopleSoft and the OWL course management system would be considered an asset;  
  • Proficiency with MS Office Suite products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • Excellent time management skills and a demonstrated ability to organize and prioritize multiple tasks and meet competing deadlines in a fast-paced environment;
  • Exceptional oral and written communication skills and ability to interact positively and calmly with faculty, students and the general public in stressful/critical situations;
  • Demonstrated ability to problem solve effectively and use good judgement in all decisions;
  • A high level of initiative to meet the needs of the position, and make recommendations for changes/service improvements with limited supervision.
