Careers

Solutions Private Investigators employs a team of skilled professionals throughout Ontario, Canada. In compliance with the Private Security and Investigative Services Act, enforced by the Ministry of Public Safety and Corrections, all of our investigators are properly licenced with the Ministry.

For more information on becoming licenced to work as a Private Investigator visit the Ontario Ministry of Community Safety and Correction Services Application for a Security Guard or Private Investigator Licence.

At Solutions, we look for individuals with the right blend of aptitude, experience and intuition. There is nothing easy about a career as a Private Investigator. The circumstances of an investigation may require long hours at any time of the day or night. Investigators often work under harsh conditions, remaining anonymous and receiving little recognition for their hard work. Investigators are required to document their work in reports that are used in court and can withstand scrutiny.

Joining our team begins with the application process as outlined below:

  • Submit resume
  • Complete telephone interview
  • Complete Wonderlich Personnel Test
  • Complete Psychological Inventory
  • Complete In-person Interview
  • Participate in Field Work Evaluation

Successful investigator candidates may be offered a position, or invited to participate in our Apprenticeship Program in which they receive in-class and field training to introduce new employees to the methods and standards required of their position.
