I figured I would start a new thread for those interested in applying or who have applied to Animal Welfare or Control Officer positions. I am located in Ontario so referring to that through the Ontario Public Service under the newly imposed PAWS legislation, however, general questions about ACOs can be asked that are outside of Ontario.
Please feel free to post any application updates and/or questions here.
Hi,poped79 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 10, 2020 2:13 amDoes anyone know exactly how many inspectors the province is looking to hire? I know the competition is closed and approx 1208 applicants have applied. Seems like there is no information what training is involved? Or how the system is going to be implemented.
I read that the province is looking to hire approximately 100 or so. In terms of the "1208 applicants", it's hard to say because on the posting, there is 3-4 position available but the posting also stipulates it's a talent pool for future openings.
Because it's such a new implementation, they may just be testing out the waters to gage interest.
Fingers crossed they'll have a hiring wave.
I would hope so too - also hoping the posting is accurate for the 4-6 week timeline...
Me too - Let me know if you do!poped79 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 13, 2020 3:40 pmI'm hoping the hiring is pretty fast an steady. I can't imagine that the police can really devout a ton of resources towards animal investigations so the need is high to get inspectors trained and implemented immediately. Hope to hear back in the next week or so.
If you click in the confirmation email you were sent, it has a hyperlink that says "job advertisement page" and it tells you the status: "Application Screening".
I just checked it and still said the above.
Who knows... I think the 4-6 weeks timeline is for the regular postings not the talent pool - I believe they hold resumes on file for 18 months. Hopefully they can do it quickly though, making it difficult with other applications to hold out for this one which may or may not pan out.
Hmm, appears no use of force tools.poped79 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 3:53 pmHere's the link, but the competition closed on January 10/2020
Good luck with your ticket books !
