Working at Desjardins

Why work at Desjardins? To be part of a people-focused organization, feel fulfilled at work and make a difference in the lives of people and communities.

Benefits that improve your quality of life

Maintain work-life balance with flexible working conditions

Teleworking

Depending on your position, you could enjoy more free time by working from home and eliminating a long commute.

Work-life balance

With your manager's approval, you can adjust your workday based on your personal obligations.

Vacation and leave

Get 4 weeks of vacation after your first year, plus different types of leave (family leave, education leave and more).

Thanks to my flexible schedule, I'm able to pursue my passion: long-distance triathlons. I start my workday early at home, leave mid-day to train, then come back and finish my work later in the day.

Values that match yours

Express your individuality

We foster an inclusive and respectful work environment where you can feel comfortable being yourself. A workforce that is diverse in its backgrounds and points of view makes us stronger and more creative.

Choosing people who don't look like you, who bring other perspectives to the table due to their culture or way of thinking—that in itself is innovation.

Support sustainable development

Keep up your eco-friendly habits at work, including composting, recycling and reducing your paper use. You also get discounts and rebates for using public transit or an electric vehicle.

Give back to the community with us

Is giving back important to you? It is to us, too. As a cooperative organization, mutual aid and solidarity are in our DNA.

In 2020, we invested $71.5 million in sustainable community development through donations, sponsorships, philanthropic partnerships and scholarships.

In that same year, 51% of our employees helped raise $4.5 million to support community organizations across Canada.

Find innovative solutions

You'll work with creative and curious people to develop innovative products and services that meet the needs of our members and clients.

At the Desjardins Lab, we use our imaginations to rethink the future of finance, in addition to holding workshops and lectures for the public.

A people-first focus that makes all the difference

What people like most about working here is how we're different. When you work at Desjardins, you:

  • Work for an authentic and compassionate organization
  • Create value for our members and clients, not shareholders
  • Find personal and professional fulfilment

I've found an organization that values simplicity and puts people first. My managers have confidence in me, and I get recognition for the quality of my work and my behaviours. Joining Desjardins is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'm motivated and happy at work.
