Important next steps in the process

Employment Discovery Workshop
An important first step in the Specialisterne recruitment process is an Employment Discovery Workshop. It is a hands-on, task-based experience where you will work on specific projects in a relaxed setting. It is an opportunity to learn about our approach to hiring, and for us to get to know you – what motivates you, your interests and your skills. Every participant who attends will receive a summary profile useful with future employers.

Training Program
Candidates whose profiles are well suited for the role will be invited to participate in a four week skills evaluation and training program on the employer’s site that will include case studies, real life projects, as well as training relevant to the roles and working environment.

On the job support
Employment offers are made to the candidates with the best fit. Once accepted, the individuals will transition into their positions at the financial services business. Specialisterne Canada will provide support where necessary, which may include modifications to the work environment.
