"I already had a good perception of the Bank when I stopped by its booth at a job fair, as I had been benefiting from the newcomer offer since I arrived in Canada in 2018. The hiring process was simple, professional and fast. I had the warm welcome and I appreciate that my potential is recognized and that I have the opportunity to develop within this great bank."

Once you’ve created your profile (your name or “My Profile” should appear in the top right corner of the screen), choose the option you want: upload a new résumé, track your application, delete, change or create a job alert, change your password or your profile.

8. How old do I have to be to work at National Bank?

You must be at least 18 years old to work at National Bank. Exceptionaly, a person aged 16 or 17 could be hired during the vacation period or as part of an internship program recognized by their school. In this case, a person under the age of 18 cannot work between 11 pm and 6 am.

9. Do I need a work permit to work at National Bank?

Yes. In accordance with government requirements, to work at National Bank, a person must be a permanent resident or Canadian citizen or have a work permit before they’re hired. Candidates are responsible for completing these steps.

12. What are the conditions regarding the use of my career file?

The personal information that you entrust to National Bank is subject to the Privacy Policy, which is available on our website. When you sign up for our recruitment site, you’re responsible for updating your profile and making sure it reflects your current situation. You can access your personal information at any time to change or correct it.

13. Why am I being encouraged to answer diversity-related self-identification questions?

The purpose is to ensure that everyone finds their place, here at National Bank and in society. We want to hire qualified, professional people who represent the communities where we do business. The data collected from the self-identification questionnaire may be used to support our inclusion and diversity programs and initiatives under Canada's Employment Equity Act. This self-identification is voluntary and confidential. You can choose "I'd prefer not to answer" for each question. Your application will be processed regardless of the answers selected.

14. Do I have to answer the self-identification questions when I apply for a job?

No, this self-identification is voluntary and confidential. Although an answer is required for each question, you can choose "I'd prefer not to answer." Completing this questionnaire is optional and is not intended to disqualify applications. Rather, it is used to improve how we do things, particularly in terms of inclusion and diversity.
