Welcome Winter Co-op Students!

We are excited to be welcoming and celebrating the accomplishments of our newest student employees! All 78 students will be working across eight of our divisions, supporting business needs and gaining valuable hands-on experience within our operations.

This winter, our students are joining us from universities across Canada including the University of New Brunswick (UNB), University of Waterloo, Memorial University (MUN) and New Brunswick Community College (NBCC). They will complete a four-month work term with an opportunity to gain full time employment post-graduation. 

Keeping and growing talented young people, here at home, with rewarding career opportunities is important to the team at J.D. Irving, Limited (JDI). Our goal is to offer students with leadership potential the chance to step directly into a full-time role and continue to focus on their personal growth and development beyond the classroom.

With 3,000+ student roles to fill in the next three years, having an on-campus presence is an integral part of our recruitment strategy. And through investments in scholarships and our student co-op program, each year we hire 1 in 4 new co-op students before graduation. 

We are a company focused on investing in the talent and potential of the next generation, offering a unique opportunity to join one operation and grow a career with many of our businesses. 

We are developing the next generation of leaders and in the next three years, we expect to fill over 11,000 jobs across all levels of our organization. With programs like educational co-op, partnerships with local universities and opportunities to be hired before graduation, our goal is to recruit and grow new graduates, investing in not only the future of our business but the grow and development of our community.
