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.
This process is an "inventory" which allows you to submit your application over a period of two (2) years. The evaluation of applications will be done continuously and in stages, starting with the validation of experience and education. Depending on our operational needs, candidates who meet the required experience and education will be contacted to be formally assessed. Candidates who meet the essential qualifications mentioned below will be included in the pool of partially qualified candidates.
All candidates will be evaluated in order to validate their experience and education, regardless of the date of submission. A candidate who applies in the first weeks of the opening of this inventory will not have priority over a candidate who applies later.
Please note that a first extraction of candidacies will be completed on September 19th, 2023.
Candidates MUST provide their curriculum vitae. In this document, you must clearly demonstrate how you meet the education and experience requirements listed in the essential qualifications and asset qualifications sections below by ensuring that clear and accurate details are provided. The screening board cannot make any assumptions about your experience. APPLICATIONS THAT DO NOT CLEARLY DEMONSTRATE THAT THE CANDIDATE MEETS THE SCREENING CRITERIA WILL NOT BE GIVEN FURTHER CONSIDERATION.
Note that only those applicants who meet the education and experience criteria will be invited to the next stage of evaluation. We thank all applicants for your interest in this selection process.
