Human Resources

Welcome to SFU

Simon Fraser University is recognized as one of the top employers in both the Province of British Columbia and in Canada. SFU's strategic vision of being Canada’s most engaged university is supported by our ability to attract and retain the best people. SFU staff play a major role in helping the university maintain its unwavering commitment to educational and research excellence.


Leaders That Inspire

Mikhail Dzuba has been a leader at SFU for the past 24 years.  He is currently Director of the Bookstore, Spirit Shop and Document Solutions.  We sat down with Mikhail to talk about his leadership journey, and this is what he shared.


New Talent Acquisition System

Human Resources is excited to announce that we have launched a new talent acquisition system, Taleo. This system replaces the current method of applying for posted staff jobs via email. 

We encourage you to take a look at our new SFU Careers Centre for staff positions by clicking here. Some highlights of the new system include:

  • Enhanced candidate experience,
  • Ability to apply online and sign up to receive alerts of new job postings,
  • The ability to apply through a mobile device, and
  • Jobs will be posted on any working day of the week, no longer just Tuesdays and Thursdays.

If you require support, have general inquiries or would like to provide feedback related to the new talent acquisition system, please contact:


You are invited to participate in a 30 day on-line Mindfulness Challenge which will launch on May 7th as part of Canada’s Mental Health Week.  This invitation is open to all CUPE, APSA, APEX and Poly Party employees. For more information and to register click here.
