The Job

The RBC Career Launch Program is a year-long, work experience and development program that helps you gain diverse experience and network with both seasoned and aspiring professionals. In short – it helps put your career on the fast track!

If selected, you’ll be a part of three exciting work rotations in different areas at RBC, including:

  • Learn the ropes: You’ll apply practical business skills and contribute value to both clients and branch objectives while working in our retail banking division.
  • Help the community: You’ll gain exposure to the operations of a partnering not-for-profit organization, applying practical business skills to help enrich local communities – something you can feel good about.
  • Take it to the next level: You’ll provide project-based support within one of RBC’s broad-based business areas (such as marketing, HR or operations), maintain ongoing business development, support community events and participate in internal development activities.

It’s all designed to help you learn about the many opportunities within RBC and take on new responsibilities with each rotation. Work hard, learn quickly, and RBC Career Launch will help get your career on the right track.
