Work Placements

Cameco has a number of programs and partnerships aimed at building an educated and skilled workforce in northern Saskatchewan.

Student work placement

As part of Cameco’s HRDA commitments, RSN students attending post-secondary courses with a workplace component may come to a northern mine site for a one, two or three-week shift in their area of study.

Summer students

Cameco’s summer student employment program is directed at northerners and offers university and technical school students the opportunity to work at a mine or mill operation. The typical work term is May to August. Students work in a variety of areas such as safety, environment, engineering, warehouse, camp maintenance and administration.

Co-operative Education

Cameco work locations hire RSN students from varying educational backgrounds for co-operative education work terms. Duration of terms may range from a minimum four-month term to a maximum 16-month term, depending on the candidate’s availability, program of study and Cameco’s business need. Students must be majoring in a relevant field to Cameco’s workforce requirements.
