Graduating Students (12-18 months) Remote/Hybrid

SOAR is Scotiabank's brand new 12-18 month development program designed exclusively for Indigenous Peoples completing post secondary education. Our new graduate rotational programs provide the coach-supported opportunities to learn, practice, and apply the skills required to succeed at Scotiabank. We recognize the important contributions and perspectives that Indigenous Peoples provide our society and are committed to removing systematic barriers that have, in the past made it difficult for Indigenous Peoples to obtain meaningful careers in banking.

This program was designed to incorporate the teachings of many nations across Turtle Island to provide a culturally welcoming and supportive environment. When you begin your journey at Scotiabank, we will work with you to understand your interests and will find the best career journey to align with your skillset. Whether it be public speaking, community involvement, or those excel spreadsheet formulas, this program will create a pathway to a long-term career with Scotiabank.

What to Expect?
Dependent on which program is best suited for you, you will be placed within full-time employment and complete various rotations within one line of business (Technology, Global Banking & Markets, Canadian Banking, etc.). You will have the constant support of program managers who will help navigate you through your program which will entail peer networking, 1:1 mentorship, masterclass workshops, lunch & learns, and internal career fairs. While participating in your core curriculum, you will also have many opportunities to participate in cultural programming. You will come out of the program with an enhanced skill set and a deeper connection to the organization and your peers.

How do I Apply?

For students, we are focused on learning about who you are and what you're interested in to uncover your true potential. In short, we don't believe resumes will provide us with an accurate depiction of what you're truly about to properly assess your potential. Instead we want to get to know YOU and hear about the experiences that have shaped you. We know... this might sound crazy but for students applying to one of our co-ops, internships or TILT new grad programs we are no longer requiring resumes. Instead we ask that as part of your application, you complete all three below:

Complete your PLUM Profile here
Complete a short one-way video interview here
Apply to the role through our career site! When the application asks for your resume, instead upload a screenshot of your plum to show us you've completed it, we have full access to your entire profile from Plum and won't use the screenshot but it's a great reminder for each of you to have completed it. Alternatively, you can submit a resume if you want, we just will not be relying on it when we assess you.
