Why choose McGill

We are determined to ensure that working at McGill offers an exciting and unique experience.

McGill is number one on the world stage as a research-intensive and student-centered university with the highest standards of achievement.  Our future rests on attracting top talent in all segments of our population:  professors, students, professionals, administrative and support staff.

We are constantly looking at ways to attract, develop, retain and motivate talented individuals who see themselves as key contributors to achieving our goals.  We offer great programs aimed at career development through a wide range of training and development courses and workshops. 

McGill is based on a culture of openness, fairness, respect and flexibility which is conducive to greater creativity.   It also contributes to making our workplace exciting, engaging and a source of inspiration. 

Inspiration also stems from our two magnificent campuses.  We were recently awarded a Certificate of Excellence by the Geo-Tourism Council of Montreal and the National Geographic Society in recognition of our efforts to sustain and enhance the environment, culture, heritage and geographical character of our downtown campus.

We have much to be proud of thanks to our people’s commitment to making McGill a world class university.
