UP is an initiative sponsored by the City of Sault Ste. Marie and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, and our cluster partners OLG, Canadian Banknote, Pollard Banknote, and BMR, to develop the lottery and gaming industry in Sault Ste. Marie, Canada.
“The Soo” sits on the banks of the Saint Mary’s river, at the heart of the Great Lakes. Aside from being a centuries-old meeting place and pivotal transportation hub, the city of Sault Ste. Marie, Canada (not to be confused with our sister city Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, USA), has been the home of Ontario Lottery and Gaming since the late 1980’s, making it one of the largest lottery and gaming centres in North America.
The business of lottery and gaming is undergoing transformational change. Technology has transformed the way people buy, and their expectations of their experiences. Every aspect of this massive entertainment industry is rapidly evolving. Smart companies know this and are re-imagining their customer base, how they reach them and how they keep them engaged. We understand that change, and we’re actively looking for talented people who want to develop new and exciting solutions to industry challenges.
The UP team works with one of our cluster partners, Credence HR, to manage our talent bench. We are creating a pool of talented individuals who can help our growing cluster to solve their business needs. If you join our pool, we’ll keep you looped in on opportunities in our sector that are relevant to you. Our cluster partners will engage us to help them find good people, in which case we may share your info with them in order to qualify you for a specific position. You may opt out of our pool at any time and we will ensure that you are removed from our contact list.
We get asked this one a lot. Seriously, the only thing we’re in this for is to create the coolest and most vibrant lottery and gaming cluster outside of Las Vegas. We don’t get commission or bonuses for attracting business or talent. Our funders have given us the financial support we need to build our cluster. We all live in and love this community, and want to see it grow by sharing it with super-cool and talented people. That’s all there is to it.
No. Giving us your info simply means you are signing up to be part of our talent pool. The only way you’re applying for a specific position is if you click to apply to it. You may, from time-to-time, be contacted about a position we think you might be interested in. If you are, great. If not, simply ignore it and we won’t bug you about it again.
