As of February 5, we switched to a new recruitment and onboarding tool called ICIMS. The new tool makes it easier for you to create an online profile, apply to jobs, receive timely status updates, and arrange interviews. Now you can connect with us and get regular updates on new openings, events and more! If you applied to a position with Brainhunter—our previous tool—we still have access to your application so you do not need to re-apply. However, we do recommend that you create a profile with ICIMS for future job applications and for our own records. We will not be moving any existing profiles from Brainhunter to ICIMS. Instead, we are contacting all candidates who have existing profiles and are inviting them to create a new one on our website. This will ensure that we have the most up-to-date information and resumes on file. If you need some additional support with creating your profile, please refer to the ICIMS Frequently Asked Questions or contact one of our recruiters at Recruitment@gd-ms.ca.
