Students needed for Summer History work


Would you like to work in Merrickville during the summer of 2019? Merrickville and District Historical Society is looking to hire four students this summer to work from approximately June 15 – September 2, 2019 (exact number of positions will be dependent on confirmation of funding). If you want to work in a job that “brings heritage alive,” this may be the position for you.

Candidates should be competent in both official languages and meet the Young Canada Works or Canada Summer Jobs program eligibility criteria. This year, Canada Summer Jobs funding is available for all youth between the ages of 15-30 who are legally entitled to work in Canada – not just students. If you are a youth who is a recent immigrant or recent refugee, we’d like to encourage you to apply. Applicants should have strong communication skills, enthusiasm to work with public visitors and a background or special interest in history, heritage, museum or curatorial studies or tourism development.

The Merrickville and District Historical Society is an inclusive organization that respects the rights of all Canadians and welcomes applications from all who meet the eligibility requirements. Applications are to be emailed to: Ann Martin, President, Merrickville and District Historical Society, [email protected]
