The National Research Council (NRC) has a job posting for its Saskatoon location. Please visit http://www.nrc-cnrc.gc.ca/eng/careers/jobs-now.html for more information, and to view jobs available in other Canadian centres.
NRC is a knowledge and innovation organization working to help Canadians achieve a high quality of life and enjoy a prosperous, innovative economy. NRC is a unique asset, both for Canada and throughout the world.
The employment equity section of the application form is voluntary. NRC values diversity in our workforce and as such we encourage candidates to self-identify as members of the following designated groups: women, visible minorities, Aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities.
Why self-identify when applying for a position?
Firstly, your self-identification remains confidential. It is protected by the Privacy Act and by the Code of Confidentiality.
Secondly, NRC is committed to achieving equitable representation of designated groups at all levels within its organisation.
Thirdly, these numbers are of great value to NRC as they provide us with much-needed information to undertake, when possible, special programs or specific actions to make equitable representation happen.
Finally, NRC is also collecting information on the composition of its workforce to comply with legislation on employment equity, as well as to facilitate the planning and implementation of employment equity activities. This information will also allow us to have a more accurate profile of who we are and how representative we are within the Canadian workforce.
Accommodations can be made for those who need them, both during the application and selection processes and after appointment. For example, tests are available in alternative formats, test duration may be adjusted to meet special needs, specific technological aids or working arrangements can be provided in the workplace and your workplace can be adjusted to meet your specific needs.
NRC spans the innovation spectrum, from research discovery at the frontiers of knowledge to technology commercialization. It addresses critical national issues and helps position Canada to respond to future opportunities and emerging challenges. It is a recognized international research performer, technology development and innovation organization.
NRC provides Canada's scientists and businesses with access to leading-edge research facilities and infrastructure, as well as the best scientific, technical, medical and research information in the world. These resources and contributions are critical to helping Canada develop a society that is adaptive, innovative and capable of providing the best quality of life for all Canadians.
