A rewarding career is here for you.
NPower Canada launches Canadian job seekers into meaningful and sustainable careers in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) field. We pursue our mission through a proven, employer-driven workforce development program, providing low-income Canadians with a full spectrum of support from skills training to direct job placement.
This requires a team that is skilled, passionate and committed to our mission and our core values.
NPower Canada is certified Great Place to Work® and named a 2023 Best Workplace™ for Giving Back
This is an outstanding opportunity to see the tangible results of the work you do, connecting directly with diverse learners, many of whom have struggled to access or complete post-secondary education in a high-touch environment. This is a genuine chance to impact a young adult’s life, empowering them to contribute back to their community as they grow personally and professionally.
You will have ongoing opportunities to expand your skills and grow your career. As we continue to expand our program offerings both locally and nationally, we will increase the size of the Alumni Placement team. You could move up to a Team Lead, a Manager, or an Account Manager role and beyond. Over 75% of our staff have grown their capacity and moved up in roles and responsibilities since starting here. If you are passionate about our purpose, you will find a fulfilling career path here.
You will have the opportunity to work with leaders, team members, and partners in the workforce development field to address the growing issue of un/under employment. Your work will also directly impact the growing skills gap in the I.T. industry in Canada.
“We are having a long-term impact on people’s lives. It’s a rewarding experience to hear the success stories and to hear alumni reflect on how we helped them change their job search into a career trajectory.”
• Shane Lyons, Director, GTA Programs
You will be part of our continuously evolving purpose, to reflect the needs of our employers and respond to the needs of the Canadians we support. We are always looking for ways to change, and we want team members to propose and try new ideas.
You will make a measurable difference in people’s lives. Everything we do, and every action we take at NPower Canada is motivated by the chance to change lives.
You will have the opportunity to channel the desire and drive of the youth and adults we serve. We support Canadian jobseekers in overcoming adversity to achieve their career aspirations. The people who make up our teams are genuinely committed to making a difference.
You will be part of an industry-driven program that is growing strategically. We are always testing and evaluating new curriculum and approaches to programming. We foster a growth mindset and take pride in the way we change lives.
You are all in. And so are we. From admissions to alumni, from operations to fundraising, everyone within the organization works in partnership with each other. We are wholly focused on the opportunity we have to elevate NPower Canada’s mission and build a work and life skills program that is unique to Canada.
You will be rewarded personally and professionally as you become a part of the communities we are raising up. What we offer is transformative, and each of us has a chance to see and hear the direct impact we have on the lives of the youth and adults we serve.
“I feel like I’m part of the best group of people who don’t back down from challenges our youth face. We are goal-oriented and want to help young people succeed in all aspects of their lives.”
