The site is continuously updated to include open jobs from the GTAA as they become available. If you've created an account, you can use the “Search Jobs” option under your Career Centre to search for available opportunities. If you do not have an account, you can still search for jobs within our Quick Job Search page or click on “View All Jobs” to see all available jobs.
Our acceptable CV/résumé file formats include: Microsoft Word (.doc and .docx); Plain Text (.txt); Rich Text Format (.rtf); Hypertext Markup Language (.htm or .html) ; and text-based Portable Document Format (.pdf). Note: If the CV/résumé was scanned in as a picture (TIFF, JPEG) the text will not be recognized by the system and therefore will not upload successfully.
Absolutely. Please feel free to apply to as many jobs as you like.
If you are shortlisted for a position, we will contact you within two to three weeks to arrange for an interview. Given the large number of applications that we usually receive for each of our positions, we regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified. In the event that you are not successful in the application, your resume will remain active in our database for up to six months.
When you are informed of an interview and need special arrangements, please let the recruiter know. If you have a disability that makes it difficult to express your interest in a job through our online application process, or if you require TTY/TDD assistance, please contact us and we will make arrangements.
The interview process allows us to get to know the potential of a candidate, and for the candidate to get to know our people and our business. In most cases, candidates will meet with the hiring manager and sometimes with other team members.
You'll be asked questions about your academic and work experiences, and you'll have a chance to ask some questions of us. It will be most helpful if you take the time to get to know a bit about our company; have a good sense of what value you think you may bring to our business, and be prepared to offer examples of your past achievements or successes.
If you've agreed to receive e-mail notifications from us, then you'll receive messages about new job openings that align with your profile or interests. These automated alerts will ONLY be sent to you if you've agreed to receive e-mail notifications on your Career Profile. You will need to apply for a specific job opening to be considered for a job within our organization.
Your Career Profile provides us with general information about your background and interests. When we consider your application toward a specific job, we need more detailed information that will help us assess your skills as they apply to the requirements of that job.
The GTAA does not accept unsolicited résumés, CVs or applications from recruiting agencies. We only accept applicants from agencies who are partnered with us for a specific search.
