The Recruitment Process


The first step in the recruitment process is for interested candidates to apply at JHemployment.ca. This will involve completing an online questionnaire as well as submitting a resume. Applicants will be shortlisted for participation in the next step based on a review of each online questionnaire and assessing the likelihood of fit for the roles for which we are recruiting. 

Employment Discovery

The next step in the recruitment process is participation in an on-site activity facilitated by Specialisterne. It is an opportunity to learn more about the role and the workplace, our approach to hiring, and for us to get to know you – what motivates you, your interests and your skills. This will take place in a relaxed setting and more details will be communicated prior to the event. 

Employment and Mentoring

Employment offers are made to the candidates with the best fit. Once accepted, the individuals will transition into their positions at the organization. Specialisterne Canada and an internal mentor will provide support to facilitate a comfortable integration and success in the new role. 

Those not selected can have their profiles added to our database for consideration for other more suitable job opportunities in the future.
