Your Challenge

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) itself is home to one of the country’s best known government support programs for small and medium-sized innovative companies – the Industrial Research Assistance Program, commonly known as IRAP.  In 2018, the Government of Canada designated IRAP as one of four flagship programs that will consolidate program initiatives and focus on providing customized support that Canadian businesses need to succeed and grow.

The uniqueness of IRAP has been the method in which NRC provides services to companies through a network of field staff known as Industrial Technology Advisors.  These people deliver both advice to our clients to further their business growth, and in some situations, make the case for IRAP to fund their client’s innovative projects.   Do you think you have what it would take to be part of this dynamic and exciting team? Are you passionate about clients? Love getting involved in challenging and complex business and technology problems?  Have a gift at sharing your wisdom with others and finding the way that will help them succeed?

We are looking for highly qualified Industrial Technology Advisors to support our multiple technical sectors and regional offices across the country.

As an ideal member of this team, you are focused on results, but you also understand that large success can sometimes mean taking risks.  You are honest and frank, but at the same time offer a gentle helping hand to your clients.

 

Your Challenge, Continued

IRAP is a program that is growing rapidly and full of opportunity and excitement.   We are changing fast and must remain agile.  But more than this – so are our clients.   We need people who champion change and look for ways to apply their vast knowledge and experience in innovative ways to the benefit of their clients.

This job poster is a general call to action for locations across our country – while we have some particular technical sectors that we are looking to meet for our clients, we are also looking for people who are technology conveners and would thrive in our environment and create success all around them.   The job action is going to remain open and we will be screening and assessing potential candidates throughout the next six months.   Apply early and don’t miss out on our opportunities.

As an employer who values diversity in its workforce, we encourage and welcome women, visible minorities, aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities to apply to our positions.

Are you ready to be part of Canada’s tomorrow?
