Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is looking to fill positions in its international service offices. They have also declared an annual pay range of INR 43 lakhs to INR 54 lakhs (CAD 72,292 to CAD 91,472).
The positions have been posted on the Government of Canada's employment board, and competent individuals are needed to fill openings in Canada's foreign service offices. If selected, eligible individuals will be assigned worldwide as Migration Foreign Service Officers.
The deadline to apply online for this post is June 30, 2023. Those interested in applying may visit the official website at emploisfp-psjobs.cfp-psc.gc.ca.
According to the job posting, Migration Foreign Service Officers will be responsible for various responsibilities within IRCC's migration programmes. They will be responsible for international application processing, risk assessment, interaction, and migration diplomacy initiatives.
According to an article published on Narcity Canada, foreign service officers should be made aware that this is a challenging profession, which would need them to spend roughly two-thirds of their career abroad. They may also be required to work overtime and change jobs every two to four years.
Employees are needed in China, India, Mexico, the Philippines, Senegal, and Turkey, among other countries, according to the IRCC's job posting.
A bachelor's degree from a recognised post-secondary school is required for eligibility. This is the bare minimum, combined with the applicable experience of 'working successfully with people to achieve a common objective' and 'offering assistance or support to others under difficult circumstances'.
Bilingualism in the official languages of French and English is also desired, according to the job description. Non-bilingual candidates will also receive language instruction if employed, according to IRCC.
The department also specifies experience that it deems an ‘asset’ but not a necessity, such as international job experience, competence in a third language, presentation skills, and experience utilising social media for professional reasons.
