Engagement Specialist Military Family Services

On Oct. 26 and Nov. 1, Military Family Services will host a two-part virtual career fair for military spouses across the country as part of the Military Spousal Employment Network.

“The benefit of a virtual career fair is that regardless of location, people from coast to coast will have access to multiple employers looking to hire,” said Augustina Charles-Frederiksen, Community Development and Stakeholder Relations Manager, at Military Family Services. “This is an opportunity to connect people with opportunities – and not just in their communities – but with remote work options too.”

The job bank currently has more than 3,590 positions, including remote positions. This is in addition to new opportunities added to the Network daily.

Recruiters from nine Network employers will be looking to fill jobs in military communities across the country. These include:

  • Bayshore Medical
  • Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services
  • BMO – Bank of Montreal
  • Calian Group
  • Bell Canada
  • Commissionaires Canada
  • NTT
  • Language Research Development Group
  • Strongest Families Institute

Representatives from the Military Spouses Employment Initiative (Federal Civil Service) will also participate alongside Network employers. These national employers have agreed to offer military spouses equal and fair access to employment opportunities within their organizations.

The breakdown of available jobs by Province and Territories on the network as of Oct. 17, 2022, is as follows:

  • Alberta – 292
  • BC – 293
  • Manitoba – 159
  • Multiple Locations – 22
