Mandate of the organization cannot be beat - Canada's spy agency and all! But once inside, you see it is an incredibly competitive organization. Moving upwards demands a lot of political savvy, so be ready.
It was a great experience to work for the Cameroon general certificate of education board. The staff worked collaboratively to ensure optimum effectiveness.
Job security was guaranteed
Long working hours with a short lunch break
The performance of each investigator is accurately measured and appropriately acknowledged by management.
Conduct security interviews on individuals seeking to work for the federal government or the sensitive sector ie. Atomic Energy and is required to have a security clearance as condition of employment. Conduct the follow up investigation on the information gathered during the interview, prepare a detailed report with a recommendation to grant or deny a clearance. Conduct security interviews on individuals seeking to immigrate to Canada. Complete a detailed report outlining the reason to grant or deny a clearance. Travel to various immigration offices to conduct such interviews. The job included extensive travel mostly driving to various locations to cover northern Ontario. However, this job was very enjoyable due to the autonomy given to each investigator.
The job included the use of government vehicles and meals when out of the office and a per diem.
extensive travel up to 500 km per day over and above interview time and follow up investigation.
It is unlike any other job out there! I can't really provide too much detail on the work, but it is always interesting, always demanding and always rewarding.
Dynamic and fast-paced, with access to information unlike any other job.
Incredibly steep learning curve.
