    The Policy Group at the Department of National Defence (DND) is currently conducting its 2018-2019 recruitment campaign for the Policy Officer Recruitment Programme (PORP).
    A representative of the Policy Group at National Defence will visit the University of Manitoba on Friday, November 30th.  The presentation will offer interested students insights into the fascinating and multi-faceted work of the Policy Group in a busy federal Department.  The presentation will also allow potential candidates to understand the importance of clear applications, covering letters and resumes, and explain the challenges associated with interviews for a position with the Federal Government. The PORP is a three-year programme designed to recruit and develop talented individuals to meet the unique demands of the defence policy environment, and become well-rounded Public Servants. Candidates selected for a PORP position are offered an indeterminate position with the Federal Government at DND.
    To apply to the PORP, candidates must be Canadian citizens and possess at least a Master’s degree in the fields of history, political science, international affairs, public administration, law, economics, sociology, or other security and defence related disciplines, with a 75% average or above in their graduate studies. Knowledge of current Canadian defence policy, as well as domestic and international security/defence issues is also essential. Candidates must be proficient in English or French.
