You’ll also flex your research, editing and writing skills to bring key organizational messages and content to life for our customers and the general public.

 

We're committed to building a greener future with our 30BY30 target to reduce our customers’ emissions by 30 per cent by the year 2030. We need collaborators, innovators and leaders like yourself to help us achieve our goal. Join us in re-thinking our energy future.

  • Act as an effective content developer for the Conservation and Energy Management business unit, handling the production of written pieces throughout the year.
  • Integrate into our communications structure and grow as a productive and collaborative member of the broader team.

In year 2, you will:

 

  • Assume regular strategic duties with the Conservation and Energy Management portfolio and run corporate communications activities for projects.
  • Provide strategic support to our communications advisors on an ongoing basis while managing your portfolio and duties.
  • Contribute to a higher-level communications strategy encompassing several business priorities, most notably energy conservation and efficiency.

What it takes:

  • Exemplary writing, editing and content development skills.
  • A natural passion for connecting with others and collaborating to meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment.

Our engaging workplace offers a wide range of challenging opportunities, while being safe, inclusive and diverse.

This includes a requirement for all new employees to provide proof of full vaccination, prior to their first day of work or the start of their employment. And of course, we will consider an accommodation for anyone who’s unable to be vaccinated due to a protected ground as defined by the Human Rights Code.
