The Future Skills Centre will be hiring new talent. Please check back often for updated job postings.
The Future Skills Centre – Centre des compétences futures (FSC-CCF) is a forward-thinking research centre with a focus on how best to prepare Canadians today for workforce opportunities of the future. It brings together expertise from multiple sectors and leverages experience from partners across the country to test and rigorously measure innovative approaches to identify emerging in-demand skills, and help Canadians develop the skills they need to take full advantage of and succeed in the new economy. The FSC-CCF is a partnership of Ryerson University, The Conference Board of Canada and Blueprint. The consortium brings together deep knowledge of economic and technology trends, public policy, rigorous applied research and evaluation expertise, extensive knowledge mobilization and convening experience, and longstanding commitments to skills training and development. Working in collaboration, FSC-CCF will access a network of more than 150 partners linking thousands of services providers, employers, community groups, academic and practitioner researchers. Building on this growing community of practice, the consortium will complement existing structures and drive systems change by expanding understanding, reducing fragmentation, and promoting effective policies and practices. With leaders in developing and testing innovative practices, the FSC-CCF will identify, replicate, and scale evidence-based solutions to improve knowledge of trends and skills, promote more inclusive and responsive career development processes, and improve access to high quality training.
The FSC-CCF welcomes those who have demonstrated a commitment to upholding the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion and will assist us to expand our capacity for diversity in the broadest sense. In addition, we encourage applications from members of groups that have been historically disadvantaged and marginalized, including First Nations, Metis and Inuit peoples, Indigenous peoples of North America, racialized persons, persons with disabilities, and those who identify as women and/or 2SLGBTQ+.
