Regular Appointment

A regular employee is "one whose work is of a continuous full-time or part-time nature."

Positions are typically filled on a full-time basis but you may consider staffing a part-time employee.

Regular appointments must be based on the principle of merit and a process used that appraises the knowledge, skills and abilities of eligible applicants. Typically, the hiring manager obtains approval to fill the vacancy, the job is posted and a job competition is then held.

A lateral transfer is another way an employee can be moved to a regular vacancy. In exceptional circumstances the head of the BC Public Service Agency may approve a direct appointment. Please contact AskMyHR for more information.

Regular bargaining unit employees who have been laid off have recall rights. Contact AskMyHR before hiring to check if you have any obligations and how to proceed.

Check to see if there is an existing eligibility list of pre-qualified applicants available from which to make an appointment.
