Additional Information:

Working as a temporary employee is an excellent way to step into higher education or expand your skillset into other fields. While all the positions are temporary in nature, some roles do have the opportunity to be posted as permanent positions and temp employees would follow the State policy of applying for the role if they are interested.

These positions are non-benefited.
