Giving you the best chance to succeed!
At Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) we are committed to running inclusive and barrier-free recruitment processes.

If you have a limitation that may impact your performance at any steps of the assessment process (such as during a written test or an interview), you may request an accommodation. Assessment accommodations are designed to remove barriers, and to ensure that candidates with limitations can fully demonstrate their abilities. Should you wish to be accommodated, please direct your inquiry to the contact identified at the bottom of this poster.

When you apply to this selection process, you are not applying for a specific job, but to an inventory for future vacancies. As positions become available, applicants who meet the qualifications may be contacted for further assessment.

When choosing available work locations please only indicate locations in which you could physically be present. Note that physical presence is required as telework is not offered on a full time basis for these positions.

Work environment

GCSurplus Sales Centres are staging areas for surplus and forfeited goods waiting to be sold to Canadians via its website. This is a unique and rewarding job within the federal government; every day will bring new adventures as GCSurplus sells over 40 types of asset commodities such as trucks, furniture, and jewelry across Canada.

Come join a small team of individuals that work alongside each other in any weather doing something different every day! This is definitely not a job for someone who loves to be tied to their desks – you’ll be tasked with juggling your own workload as you constantly transition from the office to the warehouse.

Intent of the process

This is an inventory of candidates to staff temporary or permanent positions in various locations in Canada.

Job offers resulting from this inventory will be for either casual employment, specified period (term), indeterminate employment, secondment, assignment or deployment.

Casual employment is a temporary form of employment for a maximum of 90 working days per department, in a calendar year, to meet needs arising from vacation, sick leave, training, special projects, etc. A casual worker may not apply to internal job opportunities.

Term employment is a temporary form of employment for a fixed period of time.

Secondment, assignment and deployment offers are only available for candidates already employed in the Federal Public Service.

** Please note that you are registering into an inventory, not applying for a specific position.

A pool of partially or fully qualified candidates could be established through this inventory to staff identical or similar positions within Public Services and Procurement Canada.
