Thank you for your interest in Trent University. On this page, you will find non-academic (OPSEU and Exempt) positions for both the Peterborough and Durham campus.

Only those applicants selected for interviews will be contacted. Due to the high volume of applications, we cannot personally respond to inquiries or requests for general interviews or inquiries about the status of job competitions.

In the case of regular/recurring OPSEU positions, the University will consider internal OPSEU applicants first, in accordance with the OPSEU Collective Agreement.
