Important messages
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.

Your application in this inventory will be active for 120 days. A notice that your application is about to expire will be posted to the My jobs menu of your account 90 days before the end of your active period. If you do not take action, your application will no longer be active and therefore no longer considered for this inventory. Should your application become inactive while the process is still open, a notice will be posted to your account indicating that your application has expired; you may select the link Update my Inventory Status to reaffirm your interest.

Work environment
The Support Clerk position involves, but is not limited to, filing, opening and sorting mail, cataloguing materials using computer systems such as excel, working in a warehouse environment and lifting (must be able to lift and carry 10-23 kg).

Intent of the process
This inventory is for casual employment. Casual employment is a temporary employment of 90 working days or less, in a calendar year, to meet needs arising from such contingencies as vacations, sick and training leaves, to conduct special projects that are anticipated but dependent of the availability of funds, etc.

This inventory will be used to staff positions with various schedules, ranging from regular business hours to shifts in the afternoon and evenings. For example, the shifts could be from 1pm to 9pm; 2pm to 10pm; or 3pm to 11pm.

NOTE: Casual Appointments are excluded from the provisions of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA). This means Casual Appointments will not be eligible to apply to internal appointment processes. In addition, the PSEA specifies that the number of days worked as a casual worker cannot exceed 90 days in a calendar year within the same department.
