With the breadth of knowledge and professional experience in the FI Community, there is no better way for FIs to learn than from one another. Similar to elements of the FI Interchange program, the Job Shadowing program will provide the opportunity for FIs across Canada to shadow FIs in their respective cities and host FIs in their respective departments. There is no cost or travel component to this program but participants must have been in the same substantive FI position for three years.
Through the program, you will be grouped with an FI of equal or higher level to you in their department and you will rotate between shadowing (two days) and hosting (one day). The shadowing will take place one day a month over three months, shadowing twice and hosting once. In contrast to the Interchange program, scheduling of shadowing dates is flexible and will be arranged following the selection of candidates by random draw.
Some of the many benefits of this job shadowing program include:
The program is part of the Joint Career Development Program. Details on how to apply for the JCDP can be found here.
