1 in 6 children across Canada and the United States live in economically disadvantaged homes1. For these children, opportunities and environments that promote their growth into healthy individuals are often limited.

A Foundation camp experience provides programs to help these children develop lifelong skills. When they return home, they bring with them a positive attitude about their future, and the confidence to achieve goals they learned to set for themselves.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

Founded by Tim Hortons, Co-Founder Ron Joyce, the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation was established in 1974 to honour Tim Horton’s love for children, and his desire to help those less fortunate. Our programs are designed to change the way young people from economically disadvantaged homes think about themselves and the opportunities that exist for them.

The TDL Group Corp. (“Tim Hortons”) owns and licenses the Tim Hortons® brand of café and bake shops throughout Canada, the United States and select other countries.

We live and breathe a performance-driven environment that rewards top performers, and with success you can accelerate your career as quickly as your talent will allow.

We are looking for the next generation of transformational leaders for Tim Hortons, who are hungry to own responsibilities from day one, that otherwise take years to achieve at similar multi-national corporations. You will have the opportunity to be part of an iconic brand, yet your day-to-day will have the invigorating, entrepreneurial energy of a growing start-up.

The Leadership Program (LDP) is designed to give recent top-tier Undergraduates and MBA graduates an entrepreneurial opportunity to gain international experience within the walls of a globally recognized organization. This program is viewed by our executive team as a critical means of developing future leaders both now and for years to come.

Opportunities include: Marketing, Finance, Global Operations, Franchise Sales and Development, Human Resources, Field-based positions and more. This program is open to international graduates.

Here's just some of the things our recent LDP associates are saying about the program;

Throughout the hiring process for the Leadership Development Program (LDP) with Tim Hortons, I was surprised by how approachable and down-to-earth everyone I met was – including members of the senior management team! My first week as an LDP involved a field trip to a coffee plant, the opportunity to bake and glaze fresh donuts, and the chance to work in the kitchen of a real Tim Hortons restaurant – making this one of the most unusual, fast-paced and exciting experiences of my career! The energy and passion expressed by the staff at Tims is quite infectious, and I can’t wait to see what’s next!

"Going through the process in joining the Tim Hortons Leadership Development Program was both challenging and insightful. It provided me with the opportunity to experience the Tim Hortons culture first hand and I am excited to be a part of the team moving forward."

Andrew  | Leadership Development Program (LDP) Associate

My experience with the Tim Hortons LDP Program so far has been exactly as I was expecting; fast-paced and exciting. I believe strongly that to manage a company effectively you have to know the business inside and out and am thoroughly enjoying my time in restaurant. The Tims University is an amazing training tool that allows employees, franchisees and managers to learn how the restaurant works before actually serving customers. I think it is a great idea and ensures that the guest is getting consistent fast service everytime. The culture at Tims is great, everyone is friendly and helpful, you can just tell that the people who work here love what they do and are passionate about this company.

    Pros

    Great workplace environment, close, friendly relationships with your fellow workers and the management is both competent and not heavy handed. Would seriously suggest this as a viable employment opportunity for those seeking a high-school or college occupation.

    Cons

    You might grow to dislike some of the food, due to the constant proximity, and there is quite the variance in character in the number of customers to walk through the doors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, be management, not dicators, and remember the greatest asset are those that make the company work.

    I applied online – interviewed at Tim Hortons.

    Interview

    They called me and asked me to come in for an interview at the home Tim Horton's location-my boss owned three-and I wasn't waiting for long at all. She came out almost immediately to interview me, she asked me simple interview questions, at least simple enough for a fast food restaurant.
