This is a call for interest in future casual Faculty opportunities only. If you see an NSCC opportunity posted, you will need to apply to each posting for which you would like to be considered.

What you'll do


What you will be doing…

With a workforce of approximately 2,000 employees, NSCC at times hires casual employees to help out during busy times or cover employees who have to be away from work. With 13 campuses, a vibrant eCampus, 5 academic schools and a number of departments and corporate functions, NSCC offers plenty of opportunities for casual assignments. Many casual assignments are unforeseen, require a quick hiring process and as such, may not be advertised.

If you are interested in being considered for future Faculty casual assignments with NSCC, you can let us know by uploading your resume now and answering a few questions about the School and program you are interested and qualified to teach in and the geographical location(s) that work for you.

Faculty positions require credentials relevant to the subject matter, as well as five years' experience in the field. Please note that some of our Access programs do require Faculty to hold a B.Ed and Red Seal Trades require Red Seal Endorsement. Please use the links in the posting to review programs under each School and select the School in which you are qualified to teach:
