KPDSB launches new application process for employment opportunities

01 Dec. 2016

Media Release - December 1, 2016

The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board (KPDSB) is launching a new platform for receiving applications for positions with the organization.

Apply To Education provides a paperless application system that streamlines the recruitment process for applicants by allowing them to fill out one application online and upload all of their supporting documents to complete their portfolio. 

Beginning today, when individuals access www.kpdsb.on.ca/pages/view/employment-opportunities they will be directed to https://kpdsb.simplication.com/ to create a profile and apply for jobs.  Additionally, job seekers can request to receive e-mail alerts when a new job is advertised for the Board.  There is no cost to applicants to utilize this service.

The use of Apply To Education will replace previous procedures for applying for jobs and being hired within the KPDSB.  This platform will also provide additional services within the Board, including management of absences for staff as well as internal job postings.

Jocelyn Bullock, Human Resources Manager stated “We are excited to move forward with this project and look forward to the new working relationship with Apply to Education to improve the overall experiences of potential future employees and current staff”.
