TMX Group's Summer Associate Program is open to university students entering their final year of studies. The program has been set up to create a talent pool of Associates who will be under consideration for acceptance into our two-year Rotational Associate Program, upon graduation.
"As a Summer Associate with TMX Group, I had the opportunity to work with the Enterprise Risk Management Team for TMX’s Post Trade Services (CDCC and CDS) where I led different projects related to risk identification and risk assessment. This experience taught me how to strategically evaluate the business resiliency of a systematically important financial institution.
TMX’s environment has helped me quickly evolve as a professional member of the team and I'm looking forward to coming back in September 2018 as a full-time Associate in the Rotational Program."
By joining TMX Group's Associate Program, new and recent grads will have the unique opportunity of working at the heart of Canada's capital markets as well as benefit from the diverse experience each rotation provides.
Our two-year Rotational Associate Program has four consecutive six-month work-term assignments and cross-functional opportunities.
"I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University in their Business and Financial Mathematics Double Degree Program. I chose the double degree because I love to be challenged and I wanted to be able to stand out against my peers.
I found the mix of business and math was perfect for me as math gave me strong analytical skills and business enhanced my critical thinking. I chose this program since I wasn't completely sure of what I wanted to do right after graduation. This program gives me the opportunity to test my strengths and weaknesses, as well as learn what I enjoy doing most.
I am currently in the Internal Audit rotation learning about TMX from an interesting point of view. I've learned about many facets of the business in this rotation and have been able to assist in financial audits since my background is in finance. The major benefit of this program is that it is what you make it. As an Associate you have several doors available to you. You can learn so much from the people you work with and you can meet so many different people within the organization."
"I graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with a Major in Business Administration, Specialization in Finance, and Minor in Economics.
I chose the Full-Time Rotational Associate Program here at TMX Group because I saw the rotational aspect as an opportunity to explore my interests and strengths, and improve upon my development areas at a growing and evolving company.
My first rotation was with the Tax Operations group at the Canadian Depository for Securities Limited. One of my responsibilities included certifying the amount of tax withheld and remitted to the CRA on Canadian divided payouts to Participants. Additionally, I helped to perform an analysis of our Canadian, US, and International Tax Services.
My second rotation was with TMX Enterprise Risk Management group. In this role, I was able to create and facilitate a risk rating session with the company's Executive Committee, where they rated enterprise wide risks on the basis of Impact, Likelihood, and Velocity. Based on these ratings, we analyzed the controls we had in place to ensure we were within our risk appetite.
My current rotation is with the Relationship Management group in Equity Capital Markets. I work with my team to carry out Company Services that enhance the experience for companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange. I have also been working to map out our client journey to determine how we can proactively reach out to clients and provide more value."
"I graduated from the Telfer School of Management (University of Ottawa) with a Bachelors of Commerce, specializing in Finance. In my 2nd year, I joined three of my friends to start the first student-run investment fund, in which the executive sponsor of TMX Associate Program (a Telfer Alumni) became a mentor of mine throughout my university career.
It was through him that I began learning more about TMX, and once the Associate Program launched, I applied to join the first cohort. I was really drawn by the company's culture, its leadership, and breadth of opportunities.
Having joined TMX in 2015, I had the pleasure of going through 4 rotations, most notably; change management for the firm’s migration to Google for Work, and was the first Associate to rotate in sales in the Equity Capital Markets division.
The Associate Program was an amazing experience for three main reasons; it allowed me to find my area of passion within the capital markets, pushed me outside of my comfort zone by working in various departments, and gave me the ability to adapt to change (teams, environments, and tasks).
Upon finishing the Program, I joined full-time with Sales and now lead our efforts in Ontario and Central US covering the innovation sector, helping build a pipeline of prospective companies looking to go public."
At TMX, we offer our Associates the opportunity to participate in various campus recruitment initiatives. Our Associates have been the ambassadors of our program, both on and off-campus by attending Career Fairs and Information Sessions, mentoring and guiding applicants and new Associates, as well as, assisting with the pre and post-interview process.
