We believe that public services should be easy to use, secure, reliable, accessible and inclusive for everyone — especially those most in need — and we want your help!

Our mandate is to help government improve the way it designs and delivers services to people in Canada. We empower our partners to put people at the centre of services. We provide tailored help to individual organizations to make timely design and technology decisions, build capability and adopt new ways of working, and we offer common digital service building blocks — like GC Notify and GC Forms — that any government team can use to quickly stand up services. We share our work in the open and advocate for policy changes to make it easier for others to embrace agile, human-centred practices.

To further this important mission, we are looking for a Technical Recruiter to scale our team. You can expect high impact and wide-ranging responsibility: owning full-cycle recruiting, supporting hiring strategy, and delivering best-in-class candidate experience. You must be a builder who thrives in a learning environment—unafraid to challenge the way we’ve been doing things, engage partners across government and welcome suggestions for how we can iterate on our processes. This role is classified as an AS-05 in the Administrative Services group.

What we’re looking for:

  • You identify, qualify, and close exceptional candidates in tech
  • You manage and drive a full recruitment cycle including building out new processes and improving existing ones
  • You work closely with hiring managers to prioritize hiring needs and build a seamless interview process that helps us bring the best candidates to our teams
  • You are passionate and deliberate about building diverse and inclusive teams

An excellent candidate will be able to:

  • Manage full-cycle recruiting in a high-growth environment
  • Deliver exceptional candidate and Hiring Manager experience and have a passion for building teams
  • Use the right blend of professionalism and friendliness in all communications
  • Attract candidates who haven’t considered government before and build a diverse pipeline
  • Take a human-centred approach to recruitment and hiring, understanding your “users’” (hiring managers and candidates) needs and working to meet them
  • Use a data-driven approach to problem-solving; you enjoy making sense of trends and using the insights to better your process
  • Be flexible and have a growth mindset, being able to shift tasks and priorities when circumstances change
  • Work cross-functionally, with the ability to learn quickly
  • Communicate in both French and English (in government terms, this position is BBB or CBC).

We recognize that everyone brings skills and experiences to the table and that not everyone “checks all the boxes”. Apply anyway! Tell us why you’re the right fit for the job.
