CALGARY, April 12 /CNW Telbec/ - IMV Projects, a Wood Group company, today announced that a strategic hiring initiative has resulted in the recruitment of more than 100 professionals at the company's Calgary headquarters.

"We held a job fair in January and were delighted to meet more than 1,000 prospective candidates in a single day," says Kevin O'Brien, president, IMV Projects. "The job fair was a great way to showcase our company locally, but it is only one aspect of our ongoing talent acquisition strategy. Since the New Year, we have recruited more than 100 new professionals. The team at our Calgary headquarters is now approaching 600 and the search for exceptionally-talented engineering, procurement, project and corporate professionals continues. On behalf of IMV Projects, I would like to welcome our new people to the team. We look forward to our continued growth and shared success.

However, during this time, we have worked very hard to position IMV Projects to respond quickly when economic recovery occurs. We believe that the time is now. We are very pleased our hiring initiative has attracted talented candidates looking for challenging and rewarding career opportunities.
