TREK Leadership Pipeline Program

Posting ID:     23371
Position Type:   Regular/Full-Time   
City:   Vancouver, BC,CA
Location:   Vancouver Head Office


You are ready to step into a versatile senior leadership role and make an impact at a global company. Hungry for a challenge, you also possess the humility to learn, and have a strong reputation for your ability to effectively navigate people and business problems. Does this sound like you? Canfor’s TREK program may be right for you. We are actively recruiting for the first cohort to blaze the trail on this fast track toward senior leadership at Canfor, one of the world’s largest producers of sustainable lumber, pulp, and paper. 


TREK is Canfor’s project-based accelerated leadership program designed to grow a strong team of future leaders. Its purpose is to accelerate talented and high potential mid-career professionals on the path to key senior strategic corporate leadership roles in Canfor at the completion of the one-year program. You’ll gain a deep knowledge of the business through two assignments in one of our operations and at corporate office. In each assignment, you’ll learn our business by immersing yourself into the Canfor community and developing solutions to complex business challenges. Throughout the program, you will be supported by executive sponsors, mentors, and coaches.


If you relish the opportunity to bring in different ideas, the status quo is a definite no-go, and “good” is simply never good enough, then this is a perfect match for you. In a perfect world, you have a graduate degree in a relevant field such as an MBA, Master of International Forestry, Master of Finance, Master of Business Analytics, or equivalent additional work experience. You also have multiple years full-time work experience, the flexibility to work temporarily from any of our Canfor Canadian or American locations and a valid passport. Bonus points awarded if you have a proven track record of both high-level strategic thinking and detailed execution coupled with experience in operations (any industry), consulting or general management.


If you are ready to fast track your way to senior leadership and are comfortable with being uncomfortable, then please consider this unique experience at Canfor. We have plenty of challenges along with a mission to make the planet a better place through sustainable wood products and need your perspective, drive, and passion to make it happen.  Want to learn more about this opportunity?
