New Employees

Find in-depth information and resources that will help you settle into a new job in the BC Public Service, from the first day through the first four months.

Use this website to learn what you need to know to feel comfortable in your first few days, and then come back for more in-depth information as you progress in your new role over the weeks and months to come.
