Applications must be submitted to be reviewed by line departments considering hiring.
The sooner an application is in, the longer it will be applicable.
Public Works Department:
Public Works consideration for new unionized seasonal employees occurs on an as-needed basis during the year. Recently the Public Works Department has been generally able to cover its labour requirements with returning employees. There have been very limited new hires each year since 2001 and this is expected to continue for the current year. Any entry level terms are generally 16 weeks in length per year.
Non-unionized casual employment (flaggers, street marking painters) is basically summer oriented, starting in late April / early May. Again, the Public Works Department generally returns past employees. There have only been limited opportunities to bring on new staff in recent years, and the current season is not expected to be different. Persons with Signalers Certification (traffic flagger course) are the most common need.
Parks and Recreation Department:
High School and University students are advised to submit their applications early in the calendar year, as management staff within Parks and Recreation review applications for spring/summer employment as early as March. Parks Maintenance positions are filled by the end of April. Most summer program positions are filled by mid May.
Casual part time employment with Fall and Winter Programs such as program leader, canteen workers, security work etc are usually filled by early September.
Most seasonal work is available either through the parks operations or arenas operated by the City of Charlottetown. Those interested in seasonal work with the City should apply (or reapply) early in the calendar year to ensure that , as work weeks are made available, an up to date application is on hand with the latest contact information. Most seasonals start work in early May for the spring/summer season and in September for the Fall/Winter season.
