Government and the public sector offer a wide range of career opportunities and work environments as well as the possibility of working anywhere in the province, the country and even abroad.
The main task of the public service is to provide the public with the quality services they are entitled to, implement policies drawn up by the competent authorities and ensure that other government objectives are met. Those pursuing a career in the public service can work for different organizations, each of which has their own characteristics. The mission, type of intervention, sector of activity, users or recipients of the services as well as the size of the public body can vary from one to the next within a same administration.
There are available jobs in every important sector of society (economy, environment, education and culture, health and social services, etc.) and in a wide range of activities (science, law, administration, finance, computer science, etc.) and all require different levels of education. All candidates wishing to serve society will find a job that matches their skills and areas of interest, whether they possess a high school diploma or a college or university degree.
