Provincial Recruitment Day - OPPortunities for Everyone!
About this event
Are you passionate about making a difference? Join us on Provincial Recruitment Day on Saturday October 2nd, 2021 to discover “OPPortunities for Everyone!”
The OPP is always hiring, with hundreds of job openings to be filled over the next year. Whether you are interested in becoming a police officer, auxiliary member (volunteer) or working in a civilian role, we have a job opportunity waiting for you. In addition to current vacancies for uniformed roles, there is also a great demand for qualified candidates for roles within the Provincial Communications Centres and Civilian Data Entry.
This year’s “OPPortunities for Everyone” theme will explore how the OPP supports equity and inclusion. Through partnerships and programs like Be the Bridge and the Inclusion Insights challenge, find out how we are learning from our past, engaging with communities and courageously taking responsibility for our future.
Due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event will be held virtually. This is a full-day event, from 9am-5pm, with a variety of different presentations and interactive workshops to look forward to, including:
• Specialty Unit demonstrations
This session will include a Scenes of Crime Officer, Collision Reconstructionist and Mobile Crisis Response Team member. It will be hosted by Sergeant Vynny Hick and will include a surprise guest appearance.
• Civilian Careers Mentoring Panel
Civilians are non-uniformed members of the OPP who provide critical support to their communities. Civilians exist in all areas of the organization, providing leadership, expertise and support to our frontline members. In this session, you will learn about the wide range of civilian roles available.
• Constable and Civilian Information Sessions
Gain knowledge, insight and helpful advice relating to the OPPs recruitment process for civilian and uniformed careers. The session includes an overview of how to apply, pre-requisites, expectations of an applicant and an overview of how to prepare for each stage of the process. This presentation will benefit those candidates who want to learn more about the OPPs recruitment process, to ensure they are at their competitive best before they apply.
• Q&A with OPP Recruits
The past year has presented new challenges for those training to become police officers. Newly sworn-in OPP officers will provide insights into their experiences at Ontario Police College and the Provincial Police Academy. They will also discuss their experiences in the coaching process, as they begin to gain first-hand experience at their detachments.
• High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) Fitness Breaks
No workout equipment is required to participate in these sessions, however you must complete the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire for Everyone (PAR-Q+). While physical activity is very safe for MOST people, this questionnaire will tell you whether it is necessary for you to seek further advice from your doctor OR qualified exercise professional before becoming more physically active.
This event is free of charge; however, there are limited spaces available. If the session is listed as SOLD OUT, please do not contact the event organizer. If you cannot attend, please cancel your reservation on Eventbrite so someone else may take your place.
