Positions marked “senior staff” receive compensation for their commitment, varying by role. These include editors, associates and business managers. Senior staffers do not always have previous TSL experience, and if you’re interested in one of these positions, we’re happy to talk it through during your interview!

Due to rules around student hiring, students taking a leave of absence or who do not meet the qualification of a full-time student are currently ineligible to apply for or work in paid positions. They are still eligible to work in unpaid roles.
Okay! Let us know at We’re happy to help.
