Recent grad? Now is your chance to get that career started. The Engineer-in-Training Program (EIT) and Technician-Entry-Level Program (TELP) recruitment has begun again for 2018.

We are hiring for multiple positions in each program, in various locations right across the province. And follow those links below. They lead to a great deal of information , including qualifications, application process, position types, educational streams, profiles and videos of your colleagues and much more.

The Engineer in Training Program hires recently (within the past 7 years or spring of 2018) gradated engineering students into full-time, permanent positions in our organization and rotates them through various work experiences over a 4-5 year period in order for them to become eligible to apply for an attain professional engineering status. Geo-scientists in Training (GIT) are also in this category.

The Technician Entry Level Program hires recently (within the past 5 years or spring of 2018) graduated students into full-time, permanent positions in our organization and pairs them with skilled and experienced staff to build their experience on-the-job over an approximate 2-year time frame.

Many of those that have entered the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure through this competition have grown to become some of our strongest leaders. Are you next?

If you are or know of some bright, enthusiastic, forward thinking new graduates that would be a great fit in our ministry, please pass along these job postings for them to apply.

    Hi there

    Would this program be still available for a 2015 bachelor’s degree graduate? I am currently working in a non technical position and would love to work for the ministry long term in my field.
    Thanks

    • tranbceditor on September 20, 2018 at 10:16 am

      The Technician Entry Level Program accepts applications from candidates who have graduated within the past 5 years – so it sounds like you should submit your application, along with a cover letter outlining your strong desire to work with our team long term, when the intake happens again in early January. Good luck!

    Hi, Just wanted to ask when will you be accepting EIT programs again this year?

    Thank you

    • tranbceditor on July 11, 2018 at 2:55 pm

      Hi Sean,

      Thanks for checking in with us about the EIT program.

      We usually do our EIT/TELP intake once a year, so the next time to apply would be in early 2019. If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, the information would be posted and promoted then. The EIT/TELP postings would also appear with other job openings available in the BC Public Service: https://bcpublicservice.hua.hrsmart.com/hr/ats/JobSearch/index

    Hi, would you be able to disclose on how many applicants are left in the final pool for TELP? I just want to manage my expectations and options. Thank you

    • tranbceditor on April 9, 2018 at 11:53 am

      Hello! We can’t disclose that number at this time but can let you know that applicants should expect offers during the week of April 16th. Hope that this helps.

  4. Anonymous on April 3, 2018 at 11:56 pm

    Hello!
    With mid-April fast approaching, has the team established a date for when the first round of offers will be sent out?

    • tranbceditor on April 4, 2018 at 11:28 am

      Good morning – thank you for your comment! We spoke with the hiring manager and they informed us that applicants should expect offers during the week of April 16th. Hope that this helps.

  5. Youth Wasted on February 25, 2018 at 1:25 am

    Hello Fresh Graduates, BC Highway’s salary is the lowest among all governments in Canada. Most of the work have been outsourced to private sector, it is difficult to get good experience in this organization. However excellent work life balance because there is no work to do. They posted 4 showcases of EITs who stayed with them… but that is like 10% retention rate in the past decade. Most EITs cannot make the ends meet and left BC Highway.

    Try to find a job in private sector or other municipal governments first. Don’t waste your youth away.

    • tranbceditor on April 18, 2018 at 2:17 pm

      Hi there,
      Thanks for your comments, our apologies for the delay in this reply. We connected with our TELP/EIT folks to get some answers for you. Engineers-in-Training (EITs) get great work experience – they are paired with senior engineers who support them throughout their time in the program and they get to work on projects all over the province. They are supported throughout the process of applying for their P. Eng., and they have a permanent position at the end of the program. Not many other employers offer this level of support, variety of experience or guaranteed employment. EITs enjoy working here. In fact, the retention rate of EITs in the ministry in 2017 was 65% and the percentage of employees in the ministry who are under the age of 30 has increased from 5% in 2005 to 13% in 2017. The employee engagement score for our EITs is higher than the average scores both in the ministry and amongst our BC Public Service colleagues. Our TELP and EITs often become some of our strongest leaders and we firmly believe this annual intake program is one of the best ways to develop your career.

    • whao on June 4, 2018 at 10:14 pm

      $43,000 to start… unionized engineers…definitely a first in Canada.

      • tranbceditor on June 5, 2018 at 2:22 pm

        Hi Whao,

        Engineers in Training starting wage reflects the fact that when they are hired, they do not have their P. Eng. status. They are supported throughout the process of applying for their P. Eng., and they have a permanent position at the end of the program. Hope that this helps.

  6. Chloe Lee on February 22, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    Hello.

    I am one of the candidates for TELP and work on the written assignment.
    I am wondering the hiring team will announce the result of this step of hiring process through email as they did so far since I am going to be outside of Canada for less then two weeks after submitting this assignment.

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Chloe

      Please inform the person who sent you the written that you will be out of the country, and how they can best reach you, in case they have any questions, etc.

      Thanks!

    Hi there,

    Regarding your previous comments to Sal – informing him that written assignments for the TELP were to be sent out early this week, have they been sent out already? Are they sent by email?

    I look forward to your reply.

    Thank you,

    Brendan

    • tranbceditor on February 21, 2018 at 11:12 am

      Good morning Brendan,

    Hello Good Morning,
    I have a question regarding the TELP program, can the only Technologist apply for the TELP or the degree or master candidate can also apply for the position?
    Regards!

    • tranbceditor on February 14, 2018 at 11:36 am

      Hello,

      The program only stipulates that you are a recent graduate (within five years) not the type of program you must have graduated from. Hope that this helps!

  10. Joses Akampurira on January 10, 2018 at 1:01 pm

    Hi there, so I have managed to follow the link above to the EIT job posting. Unfortunately, when I click on any of the links (job numbers), I am prompted to log onto the IDIR site. Please advice! Thank you. Joses

  11. Nick Thomas on January 6, 2018 at 7:08 am

    I look forward to some of these new recruits taking part in the completion of the Kamloops to Alberta border 4 laning program. However they will be very close to retirement when that happens 🙁

    • tranbceditor on January 8, 2018 at 4:25 pm

      Hi there Nick, we thank you for your comments and can appreciate your frustration. As you know, the landscape that makes this part of the province so amazing can also reduce the footprint we have available for widening. Creating new space for highway (either by blasting or otherwise) is very costly and time consuming. We are also somewhat restricted by our current fiscal budget. Wherever possible, we seek federal funding to supplement some of the expenses involved in four-laning (as we recently announced with the Kicking Horse Canyon four-laning project). We can assure you that we recognize the importance of this corridor and continue to look for ways to improve it, big or small, however and whenever we can.

  12. Alexandra McCulloch on September 26, 2017 at 9:43 am

    Hello, I would like to apply for the TELP program. Is there a date when the next postings will be open? Thank you

    • tranbceditor on September 26, 2017 at 6:28 pm

      Hi Alexandra,

      Thanks for your interest in our TELP program. It usually starts early in the new year. We’ll announce it via our TranBC Facebook and @TranBC Twitter accounts, so if you follow us on either of those platforms, you’ll get the details there. (Or you can check back with us here).

  13. Jay on March 8, 2017 at 9:56 am

    Thank you for your timely responses, they are appreciated!

    I was wondering if you could provide an update on the status of the Northern TELP competition, which appears to be a little behind the other competition mentioned above. It has been over three weeks since the written assignments were collected. Thank you.

    • tranbceditor on March 9, 2017 at 4:53 pm

      Good question Jay,

      We have sent your question forward to the hiring manager for an update. Stay tuned.

    • tranbceditor on March 10, 2017 at 12:05 pm

      Heard back: We are on schedule. Invites for interviews are starting to be sent out to those candidates who passed the written assignments.

        • tranbceditor on February 22, 2017 at 10:25 am

          Hi Mike,

          Unsuccessful applicants will get formal notification and can contact the hiring manager for more information about how they were screened out. Usually this opportunity comes at the close of the competition (after the successful applicants have been chosen). Here’s a video about the process. Hope it helps. If you have any other questions – let us know. Good luck!

  15. Jesse on January 21, 2017 at 12:19 pm

    There is no way for my transcript to be sent along with my application via email as the University would have to send a paper copy via mail which would arrive after the application deadline. Is it possible to have it sent to a MOTI office by mail instead?

    • tranbceditor on January 23, 2017 at 2:01 pm

      Hello,

      Yes, you can mail the original to us. Please email either FS.Eng.TELP@gov.bc.ca and/or Northern.TELP@gov.bc.ca (depending on which or both you applied to) to get our mailing address. In the interim, you can also send us an unofficial transcript before closing time today to ensure you meet the deadline.

      Hope that this helps and good luck!

        Hi Mat,

        Our apologies – we originally responded to you with TELP positions when you asked about an Electrical EIT opening.

        Unfortunately, we are not looking to hire an Electrical EIT this year. Under the EIT program this year, we are hiring Traffic EIT and Structural EIT. Potential locations for these positions are Prince George, Coquitlam, Kamloops and Victoria. Note: our EITs rotate geographic locations and positions throughout their time in the program.

      Great idea, engineers in training…
      Lets put more theoretical buts in government positions, how about first requiring them to work within industry before becoming politically desensitized bureaucrats with no idea how the real world functions.

      • Dolan on August 7, 2016 at 10:45 am

        Sure, let me know if any “real world” companies are hiring people who do NOT fall under the following categories:

        – Relatives of CEO
        – New grads who are willing to be exploited for sub-optimal wages/conditions

      • tranbceditor on May 3, 2016 at 4:10 pm

      • tranbceditor on May 4, 2016 at 10:04 am

        The recruitment process for this competition was based on merit as is required with all hiring decisions in the BC Public Service. We followed a process where by all eligible applicant’s education and experience were assessed. As they progressed through the competition, further assessments of their knowledge, skills, abilities were completed through written assignments, interviews and past work performance checks.

          • tranbceditor on May 2, 2016 at 10:32 am

            Sorry for the delay. The process has taken longer this year due to the length of time to have the verbal offers accepted. All offers have now been accepted and the BC Public Service Agency is busy working on getting out all the regret, eligibility list and offer letters, which should start flowing out mid-week.

        Yes, applicants who are unsuccessful should receive regret notification in the next week or two. Hope that this helps!

      Hi,

      I am anxiously waiting for the results. Will we know by this week?

      • tranbceditor on April 12, 2016 at 9:59 am

        Hi Becca,

        Candidates for both programs should hear in the middle of April if they are successful. Good luck!

          Will I also hear if I am not successful?

          • tranbceditor on April 13, 2016 at 4:40 pm

            Hi Becca,

            Yes, if you are unsuccessful in the competition you will receive an email regret notification saying so. Hope that this helps!

            • Anonymous on April 13, 2016 at 5:22 pm

              Thank you! If unsuccessful, do you know when we should be expecting the email?

            • tranbceditor on April 14, 2016 at 9:42 am

              Hi Becca,

              We spoke with the hiring manager and she informed us that the regret notifications are expected to go out in the next week or so. Hope that this helps!

      Hi, I have just received a job offer but TELP is my first choice. If my references have been contacted, is it safe to say my chances of receiving an offer tom TELP are fairly good?

      • tranbceditor on March 30, 2016 at 2:52 pm

        Hi there,

        Unfortunately, we can’t confirm anything until a formal offer has been made. Good luck!

        • Anonymous on March 30, 2016 at 3:01 pm

          When do we expect to get a response?

      Hello,

      Hope everyone had a good long weekend :D. I was just curious if offers for the EIT program have gone out or decisions are still being made? Thanks!

      • tranbceditor on March 29, 2016 at 10:58 am

        Hello!
        We have sent your question forward to the hiring manager for review. Stay tuned.

      • tranbceditor on March 29, 2016 at 11:34 am

        Hello again. We are still doing reference checks for both TELP and EIT. Candidates for both programs will hopefully hear in the middle of April. It just depends on availability of the references and our ability to reach them.

    • John on February 24, 2016 at 5:49 pm

      Hello,
      I’m just wondering if you have started the third stage (personal/video interview) of your hiring process for the EIT program or not yet.

      • tranbceditor on February 25, 2016 at 10:48 am

      When would I be informed if I get a chance to do the written assessment? Thanks!

      Yesterday I received a email that says:

      What does it mean? Is my application accepted?

      • tranbceditor on February 18, 2016 at 5:09 pm

        Good question Jay, we have sent this along to the hiring lead for more information. Stay tuned.

      • tranbceditor on February 19, 2016 at 10:10 am

        Hello again Jay,

        When you applied on the MYHR employment website for the TELP/EIT program, there was a privacy statement on the posting. This original notice did not meet the needs of the provincial Privacy Branch and so we were required to notify all candidates that we collect personal information during recruitment.

        Unfortunately, the initial email that went out was not clear to candidates and we received multiple responses asking to clarify their application. So we decided a clearer version needed to go out. You should have received a second email clarifying how we use the information collected during our recruitment process. If you have any further questions about the collection of personal information or how it is used during recruitment, please contact the Ministry of Citizens’ Services and Open Government, by mail at PO Box 9493 Stn Prov Govt, Victoria, BC., V8W 9N7, by telephone: (250) 356-1851 or by email: Privacy.Helpline@gov.bc.ca.

      Hello,

      I applied for the TELP program District Operations Technician (Kelowna) and would like to know how important willingness to relocate is in this field. If the candidate prefers to stay in their area, is this a large factor in determining who will be recruited?

      • tranbceditor on February 11, 2016 at 4:22 pm

        Hi there,

        We have shared your question forward with the hiring manager. Stay tuned.

      • tranbceditor on February 3, 2016 at 9:25 am

        Hello!
        We received hundreds of applications and will be contacting applicants who screened into the telephone interview stage in the next couple of weeks. Good luck!

    • Alexander on February 2, 2016 at 3:58 pm

      Hi,

      I am a recent graduate of UVic, and have some professional experience as well. I applied for the TELP program about two weeks ago, to build my skills and prove myself in an entry-level program.

      I was just wondering, if you would be able to tell me, if selected, when we will start to hear back concerning our applications this year?

      Thanks.

      I noticed the application deadline extension for the TELP positions until January 29, 2016. Does this extension include the EIT positions as well? Thanks!

      • tranbceditor on January 27, 2016 at 9:20 am

        Hello Chun,
        Unfortunately the EIT competition closed at midnight on January 22nd.

        • Chun on January 27, 2016 at 11:48 am

      I am in my last semester and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography this April (2016). I also have a Liberal Arts Diploma, for which a graduation request has been submitted to my school. However, I am still waiting for this to be reflected in my official transcript. Am I eligible to apply for the TELP program?

      Thank you.

        • Applicant on January 12, 2016 at 10:51 pm

          Thanks! 🙂

          I’ve submitted my application and sent my transcript. I didn’t really come across a questionnaire in the application process, other than asking the places I’d be willing to relocate to. Just want to make sure I’m not missing anything important!

          • tranbceditor on January 13, 2016 at 10:36 am

            If you received a confirmation from the BC PSA website saying your resume and cover letter were successfully submitted, that is it. Good luck!

      Hello,

      I was interested in whether the TELP program will be available to apply for in 2016?

      Also, I have a Bachelor of Planning and I had heard that in past years, the Ministry offers opportunities for planning students. I was curious as to whether the opportunities for planning students fall under the TELP program?

      Thank you for your assistance.

      Marli

      • tranbceditor on September 9, 2015 at 11:20 am

        Hello Marli,

        Yes, the TELP program will be up and running late 2015 early 2016. Please visit the Employment Opportunities website (https://search.employment.gov.bc.ca/cgi-bin/a/searchjobs_quick.cgi) and create a job search agent and you will be notified as soon as the posting goes live. Historically, planning degrees have been included in the list of acceptable focuses, but we have sent a message to the program lead to confirm. Hope that this helps!

Would it be possible to submit an application via e-mail? I feel that my credentials and work experience would be an asset to the TELP program and would love to participate.

      • tranbceditor on February 4, 2015 at 1:36 pm

        Would it be possible for you to scan your hard copy and send it that way?
