CBC Seeking Persons with Disabilities for Paid Placements

CBC launching a twelve-week paid placement pilot for persons with disabilities

CBC is launching a twelve-week paid placement pilot for persons with disabilities starting the fall of 2018. The pilot is based in Toronto with plans to expand in other cities across Canada in year 2.

The successful candidates will be immersed in selected departments within CBC’s Broadcast Centre. Over the course of twelve weeks, six selected candidates will gain valuable hands-on experience and industry knowledge, and have the opportunity to build their careers and network with CBC’s team of accomplished leaders. Because each of the six roles is unique, criteria will be different for each role.

The goal of this program is to help launch meaningful careers for those facing barriers to employment by offering networking and development opportunities as well as on-the-job training.

The program will run from September 10 to November 30, 2018. The deadline to apply for any of the six positions is Monday, June 25, 2018 at 11:59 PM.

Applicants must be able to work legally in Canada. Compensation will be based on the individual role according to the specific classification. The regular workweek will consist of 38.75 hours.

Applications are now open for the following positions:
