Important Update for Applicants

In alignment with direction from the provincial health authorities, the City of Coquitlam will be reopening some of our facilities and services throughout the month of June. This includes the recruitment of positions that are critical to supporting our City’s operations so that we can continue to best serve our residents and community.

The last few months have been difficult and many of you have been waiting to receive updates on positions you have applied for. We will be reviewing our current recruitments and making decisions respecting which recruitments will continue to move forward and those we hope to repost at a future date. Please note, we will only be contacting applicants being considered for employment or were awaiting an official start date for an employment offer issued earlier this year.

As we commence our phased approach to re-opening some of our facilities and services to the public, the City will be launching new recruitments considered critical to this phase of the re-opening process.  Over the next few weeks, you will see new job postings on our new careers portal, please see link below to create an account if you have not already.

For candidates who are selected for an interview process, we have compiled some Frequently Asked Questions to guide you.

New Careers Portal​

Effective Monday, Mar. 30, the City of Coquitlam will be launching a new careers portal with improved features to make it easier to apply to jobs with the City! Once the new portal launches, you will be required to create a new profile using your email address, and you must select a new password. You will also need to re-upload your resume the first time you apply for a job using the new portal.

Please note, your current login information will no longer be active as of Friday, Mar. 27. Any recent job applications are accounted for and will remain in progress, and applicants selected to move forward will be contacted as normal.
