***CANDIDATES WILL NOT BE SOLICITED FOR INCOMPLETE OR POSSIBLE MISSING INFORMATION.***
Acknowledgment of receipt of applications will not be sent.
Candidates must fully respond to the essential education and experience screening questions in the space provided for each question. Please ensure that your responses clearly demonstrate how you meet the qualification by describing personal job accomplishments, projects and activities relating to them.
You will not be screened in merely by virtue of occupying a current position whose work description meets the experience criteria. You must provide sufficient details to demonstrate that you meet all the requirements.
The resume will be considered a secondary source which could be used to validate the experience described in the screening questions.
It is imperative that you provide a current email address that accepts email from unknown users (some email systems block these types of email). Candidates are strongly encouraged to check their email on a regular basis. It is your entire responsibility to inform us at all times of any changes regarding your contact information.
For all communication please use:
All information obtained throughout the selection process, from the time of application to close of process, may be used to evaluate the candidates.
Persons are entitled to participate in the appointment process in the official language of their choice. Applicants are asked to indicate on their application their preferred official language for each of the following: a) written correspondence, b) written exam, c) oral interview.
If you require accommodation during the selection process, please indicate this on your application and/or resume.

A top down approach may be used to identify candidates for each phase of the assessment process. Responses to the screening questions will be scored based on a quantitative rating scale.

The assessment board may choose to further assess only those candidates who meet certain asset criteria.
Candidates not invited to the first assessment phase may be given further consideration at a later stage.
