The position is located within the Sahtú, ideally in Tulita. The majority of the SYN intern’s time will be spent working in an office setting, with some time spent at community events, and networking and meeting with various stakeholders and the community at large.

On occasion, and depending on operational requirements, the SYN intern may be required to work evening and weekends.
The SYN intern may be required to travel between Sahtú communities. Travel may take place using, but not limited to, small plane, boat, snowmobile, or canoe. Occasional travel to centres outside the NWT may also be required.
