Summer Jobs with UFCP in Saskatchewan and Manitoba!

For motivated students looking to get the most out of their education, UFCP provides management opportunities across Manitoba and Saskatchewan every year.


For the last 30 years, student managers have operated painting franchises every summer, working with a full-time staff of student painters and marketers. The franchise managers run their business for the summer months and learn real-world business skills as they go.


The franchise management position is comprised of all the duties and responsibilities necessary to run a successful business. This position is the perfect opportunity to gain relevant and fulfilling experience. Managers will learn how to operate their own business and will develop and hone techniques necessary to manage sales, marketing, human resources, production and accounting.


The Management Development Program was created to provide training for students as they enter their first summer with UFCP. Students will develop their business with support from the company and the confidence they need after having spent the year in part-time management seminars. They can be selected for MDP if they have demonstrated strong academic achievement, participation in leadership roles, applicable work experience or interpersonal skills necessary to manage their own business.


Along with the franchise manager position, UFCP is proud to offer several other positions for students seeking employment. UFCP hires students every summer as painters, marketers and foremen, and during the year the company looks for motivated students to assist with recruiting efforts. 


UFCP works with students to help them find work experience that will be relevant and valuable!

    “My experience with UFCP this summer has been a great learning curve. UFCP has taught me how to manage and operate a small successful business. This job teaches you how to manage employees, deal with clients, quote and sign jobs, and learn about all the different paint products. This is a self driven job where no one is gong to tell you what to do everyday, you have to learn and find out what works for you. It has been a great experience and I’m looking forward to next year.”

    “Being a Franchise Manager with UFCP has been an incredible opportunity, loaded with a tonne of learning experience. I have been forced out of my comfort zone many times, as the amount of responsibilities that fall on our shoulders doesn’t compare to a regular, hourly waged summer job. I firmly believe that I am better prepared for the rest of my school years, as well as my future work, as a direct result of this work.”

    UFCP has been a great experience overall. I can’t say enough good things about the staff and support that goes with the brand name, they are all incredible. This is my 4th year managing, and it’s great to look back and see how much I’ve grown and learned from all the experiences I have had. Glad I did not pass in this opportunity.

    UFCP has been an incredible experience and a ton of fun. The entrepreneurial skills acquired through managing a franchise have been valuable to my future business endeavours. UFCP gives a glimpse into real world business and how things works. Being your own boss can’t be beat! The support network has been a huge part of my success and I am very thankful for all the help that has been provided.
