A Sign of the Times?

RCMP Recruitment Banner

The local RCMP station is the home of two very large banners letting everyone know they are now hiring!

It must be a sign of the times or something when a well respected employer like the RCMP has to advertise like the local fast food joint.

They have also streamlined their screening process and in some cases have been offering five year postings on the lower mainland to try and attract recruits. This combined with paid training are just some of the recent changes designed to attract new members to the force.

It could be that like a lot of employers these days, the RCMP is not as attractive as they once were. It used to be they had applicants coming out of their ears and you considered yourself lucky if you even made their short list of applicants.

At one time you had to meet considerably more stringent entrance qualifications to even be considered.

Let's hope they still have high caliber individuals from which to select to replace the natural loses in their ranks due to retirement etc. After all, they play an absolutely vital role in maintaining the civil order we in Canada take for granted.

If you would like to investigate a career with this well respected Canadian institution and see if you have what it takes to wear the famous Red Serge then use this Nanaimo Info LINK.
