Work With Us

Are you looking for work in philately?

These are exciting times in the philatelic trade, and as our company grows, we want to be ready to meet the high expectations of hundreds of consignors each year and continue to create appealing sales for our thousands of bidders and buyers.

A popular item in our sales is face value postage. Sparks Auctions is looking for people with integrity and attention to detail to work as independent contractors to count this postage. The right postage counters will be well-organized, methodical and familiar with Excel spreadsheet data entry and manipulation. They will enjoy solitary work and teamwork equally.

This work is ongoing on an as-needed basis, sometimes a few hours per week, other times several days in a row to accomplish the current workload. The work also requires the moving of boxes (up to 40 lbs) and frequent and sometimes lengthy standing. This work requires in-person attendance at our headquarters in Ottawa, Ontario, with most work happening during a standard work week, Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm. Compensation starts at the living wage for our region of the province.

Please send your expression of interest to General Manager Peter MacDonald for consideration. There is no deadline to apply – if this posting is online, we are still interested in hearing from you.
