University of Toronto Scarborough

Work Term Engagement Coordinator 

The Opportunity


The University of Toronto Scarborough has been a leader in co-operative education and work integrated learning (WIL), for 40 years. Co-op and WIL give students an opportunity to apply skills learned in the classroom, and to expand their knowledge through related work experience. The Department of Arts and Science Co-op is responsible for preparing over 2,700 undergraduate students from 37 academic areas to complete for paid co-op work term opportunities. The department is also responsible for engaging industry partners who provide these work terms. A coordinated effort among the stakeholders of student, employer, and university co-op programming contribute to the development of well qualified graduates who are prepared to assume a productive role in society. With a commitment to the equity, diversity and inclusion and the campus’ ‘Inclusive Excellence’ mission, the department works closely with academic departments and support services on campus and with employer and community partners to support students as they work to achieve their academic and co-op/integrated learning aspirations.

Reporting to the Assistant Director, Student Services, the Work Term Engagement Coordinator works with Arts & Science Co-op students as they engage in the competitive process of applying for co-op work terms. During the co-op recruitment cycle, the Work Term Engagement Coordinator provides support, guidance and advice to students with their job search, with the goal of obtaining 100% hiring targets. The incumbent will work pro-actively with students to ensure that they are fully engaged in applying for positions, and track student application levels and overall participation in required workshops, meetings and interviews. The Work Term Engagement Coordinator will also support students who are on work term by being a resource to address questions or concerns.


This search aligns with the University’s commitment to strategically and proactively promote diversity among our community members (Statement on Equity, Diversity & Excellence). Recognizing that Black, Indigenous, and other Racialized communities have experienced inequities that have developed historically and are ongoing, we strongly welcome and encourage candidates from those communities to apply.
