The Marketing Development Program (MDP) is a unique two-year rotational program designed to develop and equip graduates with the skills to become marketing leaders.
The mentorship, growth opportunity, and overall TELUS culture are what attracted me most to apply. I'm excited to begin my journey working alongside great teams and for one of the top employers in Canada.
The MDP has allowed me to gain breadth of skill and exposure so that I can quickly learn and impact any part of the Marketing business, giving me that upper edge even after the 2 years in the program. This has led to MDPs developing a great reputation for excellence within TELUS!
The MDP provided me with the opportunity to trial a diverse mix of roles across the organization. It allowed me to both strengthen my existing skillset through exposure to areas of familiarity and broaden my skillset by challenging myself in areas outside of my comfort zone. Ultimately, the MDP put my interests to the test, giving me chance to pursue a career I’m truly passionate about.
MDP roles are posted in August of current year for Sept starts the following year. Screening and selection takes place in Sept-Oct of current year with offers extended close to the end of October.
