Not since after the Second World War has there been a more opportune time to join the FPS. As there are vacancies in all areas of the FPS, it is now easier for you to find interesting work. Consequently, if you understand the way positions are filled in the FPS and are well prepared, you will have an edge over the competition.

The FPS culture is evolving, and those who meet the stringent requirements for a job will be rewarded with a career that may last a lifetime. Public service employment continues to be a noble way of contributing to the growth of our country and is still considered a highly respectable way to earn a living.
