Canada's Best Companies For Women Were Just Revealed & They're Hiring

The report ranks companies based on the number of women in the company (and the roles they have) and employee wages and benefits, along with several other factors.

Canada has four companies in the Top 100, and all of them are banks — CIBC is the highest at 19, followed by RBC at 58, BMO at 65 and Scotiabank at 70.

And the good news is that all four of those equitable companies are hiring right now.

Universal Banker

Company: Scotiabank

Location: Toronto, ON

Who Should Apply: If you're looking to get your start in the banking industry, this customer-facing position could be a perfect fit. Scotiabank isn't looking for people with experience but rather people who are outgoing and conversational to help Scotiabank clients navigate mobile and online banking.

Company: CIBC

Location: Toronto, ON.

Who Should Apply: CIBC is looking for people who can offer administrative support and organizational skills for this entry-level position with no experience required.

Associate

Company: Royal Bank Of Canada

Location: Vancouver, BC

Who Should Apply: If you've got your IIROC certification and you've completed your CSC and CPH, then RBC wants you to work at a branch in the heart of downtown Vancouver.

They're looking for someone with great customer service skills and a "passion for investments," so cash in that GameStop stock for a new outfit for your interview and get going.

Personal Banking Associate

Company: Bank Of Montreal

Location: Calgary, AB

Who Should Apply: This is another great entry-level job because BMO is asking for one or two years experience or the equivalent in education — plus, you can finish getting registered to sell investments within a year of getting hired.

If you've got a passion for finance, great customer service skills and an ability to work in a team, you could be working with BMO customers and helping them sort their banking out in no time.

Client Advisor

Company: Royal Bank Of Canada

Location: Milton, ON

Who Should Apply: If you've got fluency in a second language, you'll be ahead of the competition in this position which requires helping people in an RBC branch with a focus on "education and demonstration."

No experience necessary, but a Mutual Funds accreditation and a track record in financial customer service is "nice to have," RBC says.

Senior Financial Services Representative

Company: CIBC

Location: Vancouver, BC

Who Should Apply: Don't be fooled by the name — there are no explicit requirements for this position. Applicants will meet with CIBC clients and use their financial knowledge to advise them and help them reach their money-related dreams.
