The Government of Manitoba is launching a new Data Science stream of the Leaders in Training Program (LTP). The Data Science LTP is an 18-month paid internship for data scientists and data professionals interested in pursuing a career in the public service. We are seeking data scientists and early career researchers with curious, innovative minds and a passion for using data to join us in pushing the boundary of data metric use and innovation in the public service.

This program offers professional experience and training at the intersection of data science and policy, allowing you to put your data skills to use to positively impact the lives of Manitobans. Under the guidance and mentorship of senior leaders and data professionals in the organization, combined with a variety of opportunities for classroom and online training, skills and knowledge will be strengthened through three unique work placements.

Interns will work on exciting data projects that span multiple domains and datasets to support the development of evidence-informed policies and decisions that shape services for Manitobans. This program offers exposure to data not available in any other sector and an opportunity to leverage data science techniques in the service of whole-of-government priorities.

The program will:

  • Provide interns with broad exposure to and experience in using data to drive government decision-making and innovation across diverse domains.
  • Help interns pursue their career goals, including the development of professional networks, technical skills and involvement in high-priority projects.
  • Attract talent to support the work of the organization and push the boundaries of data usage by government decision-makers.

Career Gateway Program (CGP)

The Career Gateway Program is a placement and referral program for external job seekers who register in the Public Service Commission's inventory, have relevant skills and abilities to perform jobs within the Manitoba government and who self-declare as a member of one of the following employment equity groups: Indigenous people, visible minorities or persons with a disability.

Successful candidates for the program are provided professional development, learning opportunities and on-the-job training.

The program has 2 streams:

  1. Placement Stream
  2. This stream provides placement opportunities for job seekers looking to gain government experience. Term placement opportunities may be identified for up to one year. Participants may have an opportunity to be directly appointed into a department position following the placement.

  3. Referral Stream

    This stream provides departments the resumes of qualified job seekers from the CGP inventory when department positions are being filled, upon the request of the hiring manager. Placement opportunities are identified in government department program areas where there is either the need for a term employee, or where vacancies in regular positions are expected in the near future. When the department identifies a placement opportunity, applications are reviewed to identify individuals that meet the required qualifications (education, training and/or experience) for the position. Candidates are required to go through an assessment process (see After you apply).

Who is eligible?

External job seekers who self-declare as a member of one of the following employment equity groups are eligible to apply: Indigenous people, visible minorities or persons with a disability.
