Entry-level jobs aren't often considered to be the highest-earning, but there are exceptions to the rule. There are some Ontario government jobs open right now that require little to no previous experience. They also happen to pay a high hourly wage.
These positions, as listed on the Ontario Public Service Careers website, are varied in their scope and located in different regions across the province.
Currently, the Ministry of the Attorney General is looking for someone to fill the position of Court and Client Representative in Kenora.
The job is a 12-month contract with the possibility of extension, and the salary is an impressive $25.13 to $29.29 an hour.
The only mandatory requirements are a valid driver's licence, the ability to travel, and a criminal records check.
The posting calls this a "challenging opportunity," where you will "provide technical guidance, information and support for the provision of an accessible, fair, timely and effective justice service to the public and justice participants."
If working in a courtroom isn't up your alley, there are a variety of other positions available to apply to, as well.
