Our sales are in-store, by phone, online and at many workshops & conferences presented outside the store. There is always labelling, shelving, packing, shipping and receiving. This can mean lifting boxes of up to 20 kg and standing for long periods.

You'll need excellent communication and customer service skills. You are positive, energetic and take initiative. The work is always a bit different and we need adaptability, attention to detail and accuracy, computer skills and basic math. A successful candidate will need to be organized and be able to stay focussed on tasks with minimal supervision. An understanding of online research methods is an asset.

Applicants should be available for shifts on weekdays and weekends. Previous experience in retail stores or libraries would be an asset. Because of the time it takes to to learn all the different aspects of the job, we would prefer someone who is available to stay for at least a year. New hires start at $15.50 /hr.

A G-class driver's licence is required because of all the external events we go to, however, a vehicle is not required.


We will provide training. Someone with a university or college degree is preferred. A G class driver's license is a must.
