Assessment accommodation

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.

Your application in this inventory will be active for 180 days. A notice that your application is about to expire will be posted to the My jobs menu of your account 30 days before the end of your active period.
