QUÉBEC, June 7, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - The Québec public service (QPS) is launching a large-scale call for applications to recruit professionals in several fields and in all the administrative regions of Québec. The purpose of the call for applications, which will take place from June 7 to 19, 2018, is to qualify candidates for the three following employment groups: socioeconomic research and planning officer (105), administrative processes analyst (108) and administration specialist (111).
These three employment groups (105, 108 and 111) make up approximately 15% of all QPS positions, and there are currently more than 1500 positions available. While interdepartmental personnel is needed in all fields of expertise, resources are particularly scarce in the area of:
- Program development and evaluation
- Project management
- Administration and finance
- Statistics and research
The full-time and part-time positions to be filled are largely located in the Capitale-Nationale and Montréal regions, as well as in other administrative regions of Québec, such as Nord-du-Québec, Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine.
In 2015, the QPS reviewed and improved its approach with regard to staffing, and this is the first time that such a major recruitment process has been conducted since that will allow candidates to simultaneously qualify for three different job banks. Departments and bodies will then be able to identify candidates according to their profiles and the available positions.
Professionals interested in submitting their applications can consult the Portail Carrières employment gateway to find out more about the various steps of the qualification process.
The QPS consists of more than 60 000 people working in some 20 departments and approximately 60 bodies throughout Québec, each with their own mission, resulting in highly diversified career opportunities.
"The Government of Quebec is working in collaboration with community organizations and institutions to encourage more English-speaking Quebecers to apply for a job in the civil service. Over the next two weeks we will continue to remind people that now is the time to apply by spreading the word through the community networks. Increasing the number of applicants and creating a strong database of candidates is the first step towards increased representation of English-speaking Quebecers in the civil service."
Kathleen Weil, minister responsible for Access to information and Reform of democratic institutions and minister responsible for Relations with English-Speaking Quebecers
