Sechelt Trades Hiring Fair: February 16th, 2018
Calling all job-seekers and employers in Sechelt trades!
We are excited to be partnering with the shíshálh nation to host a Trades Hiring Fair on Friday, February 16th. This event couldn’t come at a better time: according to BC’s Labour Market Outlook Report, employment in mining and other trades-related industries will expand over the next 5 years as residential construction grows across the Coast and Vancouver Island.
Date: Friday, February 16th
Location: Sechelt Indian Band Hall, 5532 Xenichen Avenue
Although the Narrows Inlet Project is slowing down and displacing tradespeople from the Band, we have many local trades and construction businesses on the Coast that will need skilled workers as demand increases. To support these opportunities, the Band is hosting a Heavy Equipment Operators Program on January 19th to re-train and certify members before the Hiring Fair.
We are excited to work together with the Sechelt Indian Band for the Trades Hiring Fair, and to start an ongoing partnership for future events. Come say hello and check out your employment opportunities at the Fair.
Finally, stay tuned for other upcoming hiring fairs in Pender Harbour and Gibsons.
