Become a Host Employer

We can help you recruit talented and passionate people to help build a cleaner world.

Summer Internships

Clean partners with impact organizations to invest in training and employment for students in clean tech and environmental jobs. We help equip Clean Leaders with the knowledge and aptitude to become stewart in their communities while delivering on meaningful environmental projects during either 15-week or 9-week summer internships.

By tapping into a student’s journey mid-way through school, our training + internship program offers exposure and experiential learning in new green career path opportunities – while giving young minds the tools they need for future success.

Stages professionnels

Recruter les meilleurs talents représente la moitié de la bataille ; l’autre moitié consiste à s’assurer que les talents restent dans l’organisation, ou du moins dans le secteur, à long terme. Nos stages professionnels offrent aux employeurs un moyen à faible risque d’évaluer l’aptitude des employés, ce qui est essentiel à la conservation à long terme, tout en augmentant la réserve de talents pour les projets de croissance qui répondent à une gamme de défis complexes en matière de durabilité à l’échelle mondiale. Les stages sont généreusement financés par le programme Horizons sciences d’Environnement et changements climatiques.
