new-workingin-logo-300pxOne of the key challenges construction companies are facing is finding the right person with the right skills for the right job. With looming skill shortages, companies are starting to look further and further afield for new hires.

But for a small company that search can seem overwhelming. That’s why ICBA has a strategic partnership with Working In. Their job fairs have been running for more 10 years and are a proven mechanism to target people who have decided to migrate to Canada. Click here to see the special ICBA rates.

The next job fair tour takes place July 6-14, 2013 and will visit London, Birmingham, and Newcastle.  Have a look at the brochure here.

The March 2013 expos helped connect many of BC construction companies with industry professionals looking to work in the province. Numerous job offers were to project managers, welders, electricians, millwrights, steel fabricators, carpenters, estimators, rebar, mechanics and many more.
