The Department of National Defence’s Policy Officer Recruitment Programme


Brown Student Services 3600 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0G3, CA

The Policy Group at the Department of National Defence (DND) is currently conducting its 2018-2019 recruitment campaign for the Policy Officer Recruitment Programme (PORP), a three-year programme designed to recruit and develop talented individuals to meet the unique demands of the defence policy environment and become well-rounded Public Servants. Candidates selected for a PORP position are offered an indeterminate position with the Government of Canada at DND.

This presentation will offer interested students insights into the fascinating and multi-faceted work of the Policy Group in a busy department of the Government of Canada. The presentation will also allow potential candidates to understand the importance of clear applications, covering letters and resumes, and explain the challenges associated with interviews for a position with the Government of Canada.

To apply to the PORP, candidates must be Canadian citizens and have completed (or be scheduled to complete by 30 June 2019) a Master of Arts degree in the fields of history, political science, international affairs, public administration, law, economics, sociology, or other security and defence related disciplines. Candidates must be proficient in English or French.
