Corporate Policy 06-01-17, Recruitment & Selection.
Human Resources Division will only accept applications for posted internal and open competitions.
Unionzed vacancies will be posted in accordance with the applicable collective agreement.
All non-union vacancies will be posted as an open competition unless otherwise approved by the City Manager. Exceptions to not posting a vacancy as an open competition can be requested through the General Manager of the Department and considered by the Executive Management Team. Temporary non-union vacancies that exceed ninety (90) days will be posted unless otherwise approved by Executive Management Team.
INTERNAL APPLICANTS ONLY
This posting is limited to current Civic employees and will be used for all vacancies for which it is felt that there are qualified candidates currently within the employ of the City. Internal applicants will be covered by the promotion and vacancy clauses of their collective agreements, if applicable. If no successful applicant is found under this process, the vacancy will be posted as an open competition. Those internal applicants who are Civic employees at the time of application, but who cease their employment with the Corporation after submitting their application on an "Internal Applicants Only" posting, will be allowed to have their application remain in the competition.
This method will be used either when no qualified applicant is available through the above process, or when it is uncertain whether or not there are qualified applicants currently working for the City. This competition will be open to both internal and outside applicants.
The City of Thunder Bay is strongly committed to diversity in the workplace and welcomes applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, people with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.
The Corporation will notify its current employees and the general public about the availability of accommodation for applicants with disabilities in the recruitment process by indicating the following on all job postings and advertisements: "Reasonable accommodations are available upon request for all parts of the recruitment process."
SUBMITTING INFORMATION ONCE A COMPETITION IS CLOSED
Generally, once a competition is closed, no additional information can be forwarded to the Hiring Supervisor/Manager. However, extenuating circumstances may prevail where an applicant has recently received a qualification/certification prior to interviews being conducted. The Hiring Supervisor/Manager will have the final authority on determining whether or not additional information will be allowed after the competition closing date.
