Employment Opportunities

Summer Employment Opportunities
The Fredericton Region Museum has a limited number of summer student opportunities each year. As funding is dependent upon grants Young Canada Works, Community Museums Summer Employment Program and Canada Summer Jobs), interested students should research the youth employment programs and ensure that they qualify and, if applicable, are registered with the program candidate banks. Community Museums Summer Employment Program applications have an early deadline so please submit your application on time! Positions will be posted and interviews will be scheduled once funding commitments are received, send your resume and cover letter to the office addressed to the Executive Director.

Summer Grant Applications
The summer student grant applications are usually completed by mid-February and the Fredericton Region Museum typically submits applications to three organizations each year. There is no guarantee that we will be receiving funding but if you are a student and interested in working at the museum then you should be Young Canada Works and check out the Canada Summer Jobs website. The Community Museums Summer Employment Program does not require you to be registered.  If any of the grants are approved then we will be updating the museum blog and posting it to Facebook so check back on a regular basis!

We will not be approved for all grants so if you are interested in working at the Fredericton Region Museum during the summer then please apply for more than one position.  You may want to apply to the Sports Hall of Fame, Beaverbrook Art Gallery, School Days Museum, Science East and the Provincial Archives as well.  Each of these institutions will provide you with work experience in heritage and/or the museum industry.
