Job Opportunities at the High Commission
The staff of Canadian missions consists of two categories: Locally-Engaged Staff and Canada-Based Staff.
Locally-Engaged Staff are recruited locally by the High Commission. Here in London, employment opportunities are posted on our website when a vacant position is to be staffed by way of an open competition. These job opportunities are only open to individuals holding a valid document proving their right to work in the UK and currently residing in the UK.
Canada-Based Staff are recruited by various government departments in Canada. They are employees who have a diplomatic status when posted abroad. For information about joining the Canadian Foreign Service and writing the Foreign Service Exam, please refer to the Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada website.
Beware Internet Fraud
Have you received a suspicious job offer via email?
Every year, many individuals lose millions of dollars to scammers who use the Internet to defraud them. Any email you receive that comes from a sender you do not know, is not specifically addressed to you and promises you some benefit is likely to be spam.
Phishing scams try to trick you into handing over your personal and banking details to the scammers. The emails you receive might look and sound legitimate but genuine banks or government authorities will never ask you to send them your personal information by email or online.
Do not open any attachments or follow any links, because they can carry viruses than can infect your computer. More information is available.
