When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies.

As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

Although this advertisement is opened until June 2020, we invite you to apply as soon as possible as we intend on filling some positions very quickly.

The first draw from the inventory will take place two weeks after the initial posting.

Various positions to staff

You must meet all essential qualifications in order to be appointed to the position. Other qualifications may be a deciding factor in choosing the persons identified for assessment or for an appointment.

A volume management strategy may be used to select candidates from the inventory or at any stage during the assessment process.

Candidates must clearly demonstrate how they meet the essential education and experience factors listed by answering the screening questions.

For each of the screening questions, provide clear and concrete examples and details of where, when and how you obtained the experience.

For example, for each experience requirement, you must list where you gained the experience, your title at the time, a description of the tasks you performed relevant to the experience factor, and your accomplishments.

As a possible secondary source to validate your experience, provide an up-to-date résumé that clearly outlines your education and experience.

Failure to provide the above information may result in your application being rejected from the process.
