Should I attach a resume to my employment application?

How long does the hiring process take?
Some job vacancies may take longer than others, but most are filled within 3-4 weeks of the application deadline.
If I’m not selected for the vacancy, will my application or resume be considered for future vacancies?
To be considered for any future vacancies, you must submit a new BJWSA Employment Application during the timeline found in the announcement.
