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 must submit their application using the "Apply online" function. Only applications submitted via this portal will be considered, unless a valid reason is presented prior to the closing date and accepted by the hiring manager.
Please ensure that your information is updated and remains current in your PSRS Applicant Account.
Your application in this inventory will be active for 150 days. A notice that your application is about to expire will be posted to the My Jobs menu of your account 10 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.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
Candidates that apply for this position will have to complete a **SCREENING QUESTIONNAIRE** in order to clearly demonstrate that they meet the education and experience criteria (essential and asset qualifications) and **A WRITTEN EXAM.

Resumes may be used as a secondary source to validate the experience described in the experience questionnaire. Failure to clearly demonstrate in the questionnaire how you meet the education and experience, both essential and asset, where applicable, may result in the rejection of your application.
Candidates will not be solicited for incomplete or possible missing information.
