Several new positions in the operating model were also hired over the summer across all of the six administrative workstreams. We're pleased to note that of the 24 positions hired below, 23 were filled with key, existing talent within the organization.

Be sure to regularly review future opportunities posted on the Position Opportunities Page; please remember that POP only provides the upcoming opportunities created as a result of restructuring. The Careers website is the place to watch for all opportunities you can apply for.
