Attending UNH in the fall, 2019? Looking for a job on campus?


UNH has a tremendous opportunity for hiring incoming first year students that will be attending UNH, as well as potential employees that are not going into college but that meet our hiring criteria.

We hire staff to drive the shuttle busses and it is the best part-time job on campus! We start our staff at $12 per hour and once they get their Commercial Driver’s License (which we train them for, pay for their training, and pay for their CDL) they get moved to $14 per hour. We will look to train and license staff over this summer that are local, working around their summer jobs.
