External recruitment process



Our online application process

We’ve changed our careers application process to an online format to make it easier and quicker to apply for jobs at the WSIB.

By clicking on our Job Postings link you will be able to browse all external WSIB job postings.

To make full use of the system and apply for jobs, complete the short one-time registration process and log in. The system lets you:

  • Apply to a specific job posting or submit a generic application without selecting a specific job.
  • Search for jobs based on job title, key words, category or location.
  • Save job searches for future use.
  • Set up email alerts so you won’t miss future job postings. Our system will automatically notify you by email when your selected jobs are posted.
  • Email job postings to friends.
  • Update your contact information.
  • Keep track of your application(s).

The process

The average duration for an external recruitment is approximately eight weeks. Please note, however, that there may be a number of factors that could significantly impact the timeline of the recruitment process. We appreciate the interest of all
candidates, but only those selected for an interview will be contacted.
