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.

Candidates who applied to selection process 18-RCM-EA-N-N-NCR-FP-78293 are not required to reapply to this process.

Do you wish to better your odds at being considered?

Use concrete examples by using the STAR technique, describing:
  • The situation;
  • The tasks you were required to achieve;
  • The actions you took; and

ATTENTION: should your examples not be concrete enough or should they contain insufficient details, unfortunately, your application will be rejected. We will not contact you to obtain further information.

Some essential and other qualifications will be assessed through your application; it is your responsibility to provide appropriate examples to illustrate how you meet each qualification.

Intent of the process
A pool of qualified candidates will be established inclusive of Public Service (PS) employees and Civilian Members (CM) and may be used to staff similar positions with various tenures, locations, linguistic profiles and RCMP security clearances.
