Human Resources

Call one of the world’s most beautiful islands home AND do a job you love

Cape Breton University’s diverse community of valued faculty and staff relish the idea of helping to create and promote an educational environment where students don’t just go, they Happen. Because CBU is a unique place where students who believe that they can actually have an effect in the world discover what that effect is going to be.

Yes, it’s exciting. And if you’re the kind of person we’re looking for, you’re already thinking of ways you can bring your energy and help build the kind of place where people Happen.   You’re someone who will care about not just what students do at CBU, but what they do beyond it. Because what happens in Cape Breton University doesn’t stay on Cape Breton Island. It’s already Happening here, across Canada and around the world.

If you can imagine yourself helping to make all this Happen, please check out our current job openings.
