Employment Bridging Internship program

Cenovus staff at our head office in Calgary

Our Employment Bridging Internship program allows us to work closely with Aboriginal communities and organizations to identify internship candidates near our operating areas in northern Alberta. Once accepted into the program, we provide employment opportunities that allow for mentorship and training along the way, building the necessary skills to obtain full-time employment.

This unique program offers pre-employment training and paid work opportunities at either our Foster Creek or Christina Lake oil sands projects with the goal to qualify for a full-time career at Cenovus. The length of each internship varies depending on the role requirements.

Since the programs start in 2012, we've had 32 interns go through the program. Four participants continue to work full-time at Cenovus. Positions the interns are engaged in include power engineering, instrumentation technology, millwright, electrician, field operator, lab assistant, and training and orientation administration.
