General Information on Applying for GNWT Job Openings
Whatever your interest or background, we may have the opportunity you are looking for. You will find current job postings for all GNWT positions. Information for Applicants provides details on our job posters, the competition process and how to apply. NWT Community Profiles provide information on all communities in the NWT. The GNWT offers competitive salaries, and all positions include a generous northern living allowance and benefits package, including relocation costs.
The Government of the Northwest Territories is an inclusive workplace, and seeks to accommodate persons with disabilities, as required. If you have a disability and you require support, you are encouraged to identify your needs if you are contacted for an interview or assignment, so that you may be accommodated.
Applicants must be eligible to work in Canada. Staffing for all GNWT competitions is carried out in accordance with the Affirmative Action Policy.
If you are currently on probation with the GNWT, you require written permission from your Deputy Head to apply for another position. This written permission should be submitted with your application. Applications received from employees on probation for their current job will not be considered beyond screening without written permission from their Deputy Minister (See the Human Resource Manual Guideline 109 Screening Applications).
