Apply for a City Position
Current Job Postings
Can I apply for a position any time I wish?
The City of Castlegar only accepts resumes for open competitions, that is, any position which has been advertised and for which we are actively recruiting. General applications are not accepted nor kept on file unless a position is advertised.
How will I know when to apply?
Whenever a position becomes available for open recruitment, the City of Castlegar advertises the employment opportunity in the local newspaper, web page or other employment sites. The advertisement contains a brief job description, statement of minimum training and experience necessary and a description of any special certification which may be required, i.e. licenses, certificates etc. A closing date appears on every advertisement.
If I want to apply for more than one job, do I have to file more than one resume and cover letter?
Yes. You must submit a separate job resume and cover letter for each job. You may apply for as many jobs as you wish, as long as the positions are currently open.
If I've previously submitted a resume, will I automatically be considered for other positions?
No. You must submit a separate resume/cover letter for all positions you are interested in.
How does the City determine if I qualify for a position?
The City reviews all resumes and materials submitted to determine if you meet the minimum qualifications and special requirements as stated in the job posting. Failure to include all information requested could result in the rejection of your application. With accurate and complete information, we will be able to determine whether you meet the minimum qualifications for the job.
What happens after I submit my resume?
After resumes have been screened for the minimum qualifications, they are then shortlisted. The Corporate Services Department will then contact those applicants they wish to interview.
