Committed to supporting Aboriginal communities.
February 11, 2019 (Mississauga, ON) – Express Scripts Canada (ESC) has proudly added another internship opportunity to their Indigenous Internship Program as part of the organization’s larger commitment to supporting Aboriginal communities. The paid internship opportunity will be in Marketing for one year and will support various marketing projects and event planning efforts in the Mississauga office.
ESC has a long history of serving Aboriginal communities, and are in the process of certification in the Progressive Aboriginal Relations (PAR) program, which sets standards of excellence in aboriginal relations and assesses organizations' adherence to those standards. The internship is part of their Indigenous recruitment and retention strategy.
In developing the internship program, ESC is working closely with Indigenous consulting firm Acosys Consulting, with the goal of ensuring that the program delivers highly relevant real-life work experience that will qualify participants for full-time employment at the end of the internship. This means a well-structured engagement that integrates the intern into the day-to-day business of the organization. Put another way, interns won’t be fetching coffee.
ESC’s PAR commitment also includes the following activities:
• A focus on identifying and supporting aboriginal leaders within ESC
• A plan to build awareness of aboriginal history and culture across the organization
• A commitment to engage aboriginal vendors where appropriate
• Strategic support for aboriginal charities focused on youth education
Acosys Consulting is accepting resumes for the Marketing Intern and hopes to have the successful candidate in place early in 2019. If this opportunity speaks to you submit a resume with cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
