I have a disability and would like to request assistance with my online application and/or request an accommodation for the selection process. How can I do this?

The City of Moncton is an equal-opportunity employer, and this extends to our hiring process. If you are having difficulties submitting an online application, please contact our Human Resources Department: employment [at] moncton.ca (employment[at]moncton[dot]ca) or (506) 87707707. During the interview process, you can inform the recruiter about the specifics of your request for an accommodation. To ensure that the accommodation can be arranged, please coordinate with the recruiter as soon as you are contacted.

What is an accommodation and why would I ask for one?

Simply put, if you have a disability (physical or mental) that would place you at a disadvantage during the selection process, you may request a reasonable modification or adjustment. The modification is intended to allow you an equal opportunity to demonstrate that you can meet the essential functions of the position.

Does the City hire summer students?

Of course! The City is proud to hire approximately 200 students across different municipal departments each year. The number of positions available, and which departments are hiring, varies from year to year.


Most years, job offerings for students are posted in mid-December or early January. The interview process typically begins in late March or April, with student employment generally running from early May to early August. Given the time period for these positions, the City predominately hires university students, as they finish their school year earlier. However, we encourage any interested student to apply.


When the City is recruiting summer students, applicants can review all available positions online and submit their candidacy for their first and second choices.
