A EC06 tops out at 107258 currently.

I'd like to see some proof from that poster saying the OPS paying 20K more.

Looks like 100K or 107K in some cases.

I've talked to a senior policy analyst in the Federal Public Service who says he considered OPS jobs but it paid way less. Seems like misinformation being spread about 20K more pay.



Proof?
Proof? Years of experience in both the Federal and Provincial Government.

Also not sure where people are getting this 20k figure from. Pretty easy to search the sunshine list for "Senior Policy" in the OPS and see that most senior policy advisors make between $100-110k, well in the range of an EC-06 and below the max for an EC-07.

Do temp OPS contracts have to be advertised though competition cia their website or is it possible to go from staffing agency temp (with the OPS) to OPS temp directly?

Yes to both. For staffing it, Marberg and HR Associates to name some.

It can be done through their website or through an agency like the other poster mentioned. Altishr is another agency that is good with Ontario Govt jobs, register with all 3 and you have a great chance of landing something.

Thanks for the replies,
I've already had a few contracts though mentioned firms and am currently getting contracts of increased length.
Looking to cut out the middleman and gather seniority to be able to become perm one day.

(and I really like working there too)
