Job Opportunities at the Embassy

In the interests of fair and open competition, we do not maintain a database of potential candidates. Therefore we do not accept applications on a speculative basis or hold resumes on file to be considered for future vacancies.

Our Job Opportunities are only open to individuals who are eligible to work in Austria. Those candidates holding visas not renewable in Austria will not be eligible to apply for this position. The Embassy does not reimburse any travel costs to and from interview, nor does it reimburse any relocation costs. The Canadian Embassy does not sponsor work permit applications.

Job opportunities are listed here, when available.

The staff of Canadian missions consists of two categories: Locally-Engaged Staff and Canada-Based Staff.

Locally-Engaged Staff are recruited locally by the Embassy. Here in Vienna, employment opportunities are posted on our website and/or through various newspapers when a vacant position is to be staffed by way of an open competition. These job opportunities are only open to individuals who are eligible to work in Austria. Those candidates holding visas not renewable in Austria will not be eligible to apply for this position. The Embassy does not reimburse any travel costs to and from interview, nor does it reimburse any relocation costs. The Canadian Embassy does not sponsor work permit applications.

Canada-Based Staff are recruited by various government departments in Canada. They are employees who have a diplomatic status when posted abroad. For information about the Canadian Foreign Service, please refer to the Department of Foreign Affairs website.

Contractual Opportunities at the Embassy

On occasion, contractual opportunities arise at the Embassy and Requests for Proposals are advertised. The contracting process will follow the Government of Canada rules, regulations, and terms and conditions.

Recruitment and Staffing

The recruitment and staffing process for Locally-Engaged Staff consists of a comprehensive series of tests and interviews that will help us – and you – determine whether you are suited for employment with the Canadian Embassy.

Our recruitment and staffing process is driven by our desire to find the right person for the job.

Benefits

Our benefits package aims to support our goal of attracting and retaining the best people for the Canadian Embassy.

We regularly compare ourselves to a select group of other businesses targeting the same pool of talent. This enables us to maintain an attractively positioned salary and benefit package.
