Seriously, we’ve been waiting for you. What we are proposing is a pretty simple partnership -- you bring the education and the ambition, and we’ll find you the opportunity that plays to your strengths and puts you on the path toward a great career.
Uh, aren’t you late for work?
Frankly, we believe that your newly-minted engineering/finance/business admin/accounting/marketing/good-old- fashioned-liberal- arts degree is your ticket to a long and rewarding career – and we want that career to be with TELUS.

Diversity in technology scholarship program
Recognizing women and minorities in technology
Wow, you’re almost there! We know how hard you’ve worked and the sacrifices you’ve made to continue your education. As a leader in technology, we also know that diversity drives innovation, and we believe in a friendly future where youth are provided with the resources and technology they need to reach their full potential.
That’s why, through our TELUS Diversity in Technology Scholarship program, we’re investing in $5000 scholarships for women and minorities in their final year of a technology related program, at a Canadian post-secondary institution. If you’re passionate about technology and compassionate about your community, we want to hear your unique story.
The application process is open May 16 to July 31.
After assessing all applications, final candidates will be selected based on eligibility, quality of application, demonstrated passion for technology, and the ability to overcome adversity. Help us make tech more diverse.

“I am honoured to be a recipient of the TELUS Diversity in Technology Scholarship and extremely grateful for TELUS' commitment to furthering diversity in technology and innovation leadership. As a result of receiving this scholarship, I am able to spend my final year focused on completing my Engineering degree as well as planning for my future in the field. This scholarship has also provided me with an opportunity to connect with mentors, other students and women who, like myself, will be launching their careers in STEM fields after graduation. I'd like to say a big thank you to TELUS for this opportunity and for their support throughout the process! I'd also like to encourage other students to apply for this opportunity at TELUS.”
What you can expect from TELUS
Working towards a common goal
It’s one of our core values, and we know a lot of companies say that, but at TELUS we know that our success, and that of each individual team member, is tied to working together, toward a common goal. If you’re joining us on a rotational program or work-term, we’ll move you around the organization and you’ll see that teamwork in action every day. And, if you are joining us part-time or full time, so much of what we do is cross-functional and collaborative, that you’ll be working with your team and so many others right across TELUS. And, you’ll find we’re all pretty cool.
The value of learning
Clearly, with your education and your experience, we don’t have to sell you on the value of learning. You’ll find that your co-workers are just as into continuous learning as you are. We think that a degree is important, but that it’s just the beginning of our learning process. If you want to pursue a professional designation or hone your leadership skills, we’re here to support you. It’s important to us that you grow personally and professionally as part of the TELUS team, and we offer you lots of programs that encourage you to find your bliss.
The most engaged team on the planet
Not to brag, but the TELUS team is the most engaged team on the planet. We mention this because we are all about creating a working environment that promotes happiness. We get that it’s still work, but we don’t see any reason why you can’t be happy doing it. Depending on where you start your career with TELUS, you might work in one of our LEED-certified workplaces, in one of our state of the art retail stores or, in some cases, at your home office.
TELUS is all about making connections – connecting Canadians to the technology, information, and people that mean the most to them. Every day of your working life, you will be enabling those connections. And, outside of work, there are 78,000 of us giving where we live and making an equally meaningful connection in the communities where we live work and play. If this sounds like the place you’d like to start your career – and maybe even finish it, too – join us. We think you’ll really like it here.

"My team works to maintain financial integrity and analyze operational efficiency. The greatest part about my job is being surrounded by positive and inspiring team members who put in a full effort both in and outside of the workplace."
Andrew Lowe, Co-op student (Finance Operations)
"I lead our Managed Private Network DevOps team at TELUS, we work with the latest technology in the industry, standardize how we use it to provide managed services to our customers and deliver them through leading automation frameworks. I started at TELUS as part of the Graduate Engineering & Leadership Program, which gave me the opportunity to develop a diverse set of skills while working with multiple teams to understand the business landscape. The network of people made and variety of experiences gained also allowed me to truly engrain myself in the company culture and build a sense of community. Through this journey, I was able to not only find my ideal technical engineering path, but also accelerate into a leadership role early on in my career."
Radwa Rawoof, Director (Managed Private Network DevOps, Chief Technology Office)
