Director, Global Head of Trade Floor Supervision

"Before I had children, I was anxious about how having a child would impact my career and the way I was perceived as a working mother. At Scotiabank, I was promoted to Director when I was 8 months pregnant with my first daughter and then named Head of U.S. Trade Floor Supervision immediately upon returning from my second maternity leave. I think my experience highlights how Scotiabank is supportive of women and mothers in the workplace."


Regulatory Onboarding Analyst

"As soon as one joins the bank, they are greeted with a supporting community that wants to see each other grow and improve every single day. Everyone on the team is always prepared to set their work aside and help one another. There have also been many instances where experienced colleagues have come to me for advice or help. When they do, it makes me feel heard and appreciated as a valuable member of the team."


Managing Director, Corporate Banking

"Scotiabank provides a strong platform for growth fueled by the energy each team member brings to work everyday. The firm has created an environment where diversity of thought and experience are encouraged and celebrated, and leadership go above and beyond to make sure all employees feel safe to share ideas or highlight concerns. It is incredibly inspiring."
