Sponsorship is another way we show our commitment to nurturing homegrown talent beyond jobs and financial awards. We support the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) Palliser and Kelsey campuses with sponsorships that fund the purchase of new equipment, enabling students to learn new skills on state-of-the-art equipment. The skills learned can be directly applied to equipment in many of the SaskPower generating facilities across the province.

Co-op programs

You bring the bright ideas; we energize your career with valuable work experience. If you’re a student registered in a post-secondary co-operative work study program, you may apply for current co-op positions. If you’re unsure about your eligibility, check with your co-operative education coordinator.

Co-op work placements are available in engineering, business administration, electrical engineering technology and CADD technology. Placements are located throughout Saskatchewan and are offered each year in September, January and May.

Summer jobs

Gain more than just money. A summer job at SaskPower gives you the right combination of education and work experience. If you are registered full time at a post-secondary educational institution and have registered to attend full time again in the fall, apply for current summer positions.
