Position Description

Explore, develop, and ignite your passion for the world of Finance!

Scotiabank’s UpLIFTED Women in Finance Development program is a selective program designed for female-identifying, first- and second-year students who have an interest in finance. Our program supports and develops women early in their academic career by providing exposure, insights, and opportunities to learn about finance from experienced professionals.

The development program will run from the beginning of January 2024 to the end of April 2024. During the program participants will be assigned a mentor, have access to targeted workshops to help participants prepare for a career in finance, and have the opportunity to participate in candid discussions about what it means to be a woman in finance.

Program topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Career Pathways Workshops
  • Leadership Speaker Series
  • Networking and Interview Workshops
  • Technical Skills Workshops
  • Office Tours (location dependent)

Participants will also have regular 1-1 sessions with their mentors and Scotiabank career advisors.
