The Facilities Management Department invites applications for student maintenance worker positions for the period April through August 2016.

Students will work outdoors (rain or shine) cutting grass, weeding, garbage pickup, other grounds work as well as other related duties as assigned by the Manager, Facilities Operations.

Applicants must be returning to fall classes at CBU. Work requires ability to do heavy lifting and strenuous grounds work. Position pays $13.00 per hour.

Qualified candidates should send to the Human Resources Department:

  • a letter of application quoting the reference number and identifying his/her education and experience as it relates to this position;

We thank all applicants for their interest; however, only applicants selected for an interview will be contacted. Applicants who are not successful in obtaining a CBU position may have their application also considered for outdoor summer employment with the Cape Breton Regional Municipality (subject to funding approval).

We share the air! CBU promotes a smoke and scent-free workplace.
