Personnel and Recruitment Officers

(NOC 1223)


You must complete either a university degree, or a professional development program or college diploma in personnel administration or a related field (business administration, industrial relations, commerce, psychology) and five years of experience.

You may be required to gain experience in a clerical or administrative position related to personnel administration.

With experience, you may move up the ranks to become a manager.

One of the factors creating additional complexity in the skills required is the growing and changing body of law applied to human resources. You will be required to interpret and apply these laws and to keep pace with changes.

Most recent entrants have an undergraduate university degree, and about 3 in 20 have a graduate degree.
