Application Process

1. Apply to be an intern to confirm your eligibility.

2. Create your account on The Hive, and browse the Job Board. Apply for jobs of interest. Approved employers will contact you if you are selected for an interview.

*You can also find your own internship with an employer that meets the eligibility criteria (above). They will need to apply to be a host and submit their internship job on the website for approval before you can start as their intern.

3. Once you are matched with a host, Clean will work with you and the host to get the required documents signed prior to the start of your internship.

4. You can start your internship once all the required documents are finalized. At the halfway mark and the end of the internship, you will need to respond to a survey that will serve as a progress report, along with at minimum two check-ins (via phone or, when possible, in person).

We are committed to Employment Equity and our goal is to be a diverse workforce that is representative at all job levels. We welcome applicants from Indigenous People, Visible Minority Groups, Persons with Disabilities and Women in occupations of positions where they are under-represented. If you are a member of one of the equity groups, you are encouraged to self-identify on either your cover letter or resume.
