We’ll be honest, but not humble. We have the best student staff members in the world! Our students are the backbone of MERIT, and are often in the position of providing critical support and service to our users. Luckily for us, our users (primarily students, staff, and faculty in School of Education units, departments, and courses) are also great!

We typically have a range of positions that are available in lots of different areas: library circulation & equipment, library reference, library technical services, IT help desk, and special projects.

MERIT is dedicated to providing top quality service to its users, as well as providing top quality employment experiences for our staff. We know that our student staff often have the best and most creative suggestions and ideas for improving what we do. We encourage initiative, troubleshooting, and creativity. We care about you as a person, and want to encourage your success. We celebrate frequently (bowling, trivia, terrace) and enjoy potlucks and treats together throughout the year! We try very hard to supplement the hourly rate with a great work environment.

Please consider applying to join the ranks of our fantastic staff!
