About the job

Nature of work

  • foreign service officer
  • government official
  • health authority board member
  • parole board member
  • returning officer

Skills

To work in these fields, you should be organized, resourceful, and able to co-operate with others in a team. You must be able to communicate clearly, both orally and in writing. Many of these positions require strong research skills.

Job requirements

  • A bachelor's degree is usually required.
  • A master's degree may be required.
  • Foreign Service officers are accepted on the basis of competitive examination.

Other considerations

Several years of experience as a researcher, consultant or program administrator may be required.
