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 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. For more information, contact AskMyHR by submitting a service request using the category A Hiring Manager > Hiring Process > Hiring Options & Programs.

Regular Bargaining Unit employees who have been laid off have recall rights. Before hiring, check if you have any obligations and how to proceed by submitting an AskMyHR service request using the category A Hiring Manager > Hiring Process > Hiring Options & Programs.

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