Government Markets Public Service Jobs on New Site

Candidates seeking a job with the Nova Scotia public service can now find job listings on jobs.novascotia.ca.

This change moves the hiring and application process almost exclusively online which means less paperwork and quicker internal processing.

"We are focused on making the province an employer of choice so we can attract the best candidates," said Public Service Minister Labi Kousoulis. "This new modern job-posting service will allow candidates to more easily apply for jobs in the Nova Scotia public service and streamline the process of starting a new career."

Nova Scotia government jobs will no longer be hosted on Career Beacon. Anyone with a current profile on Career Beacon can create a new account at jobs.novascotia.ca.

Once a candidate has created a profile on the new system they can fill out government job applications more quickly.

Government offers exciting career paths and opportunities for advancement. More information can be found at jobs.novascotia.ca.
