Summer employment

More in this section

We offer more than 200 summer employment opportunities in the energy industry to university and college students (with limited opportunities for high school students).

We typically hire students who are enrolled in academic programs that support our operational needs. Preference is given to students who live in Manitoba.

Jobs are available in a number of areas including, but not limited to:

  • accounting;
  • business administration;
  • construction;
  • engineering;
  • entry-level (undeclared, U1, etc.);
  • environmental;
  • general labour;
  • geography;
  • information technology;
  • trades & technology.


To be eligible for summer employment, you must be a student who is:

  • at least 16 years of age;
  • able to work in Canada;
  • living in Manitoba for the full duration of your work term;
  • enrolled in full-time studies both before and after the work term.

If you will not be returning to school after the work term but need a co-op term to graduate, you are still eligible.

How to apply

To apply, you must complete the summer student application questionnaire, posted until May 1, 2024. Apply before January 31, 2024 to be considered for career-related positions. Resumés are matched to available positions starting February 1, and work terms run from May to August.

You will need a PDF of your resume and cover letter.


We are committed to hiring students from designated diversity groups and want to encourage students to self-declare employment equity status in the application process.

Co-op students

Co-op opportunities vary annually, with most of them being offered during the summer term. Students interested in a summer co-op position follow the same application process as summer students, except for RRC Trades Technology students. RRC Trades Technology students will apply through the RRC Career Bridge Portal.

Any co-op positions available during the fall or winter terms will be posted on your school’s website, and we encourage you to submit your applications there.
