EDMONTON, July 13, 2012 /CNW/ - The robust construction marketplace and the resulting demand for workers has prompted the PCL family of companies to launch a recruitment campaign geared to helping the organization meet its existing and future employment needs. The My Legacy campaign aims to attract people who are interested in a rewarding career where they can build their own legacy with PCL.
"PCL has developed a culture of expertise and mentoring that is unique in the industry," said Rob Holmberg, executive vice president, Canadian Buildings, and director of construction, Australia. "At PCL you have the chance to join one of the most dynamic companies in North America and contribute to a successful team that works hard, plays hard, and makes a difference in your community."
Currently, PCL has more than 950 projects underway across the country with an extensive backlog of work that continues to grow. The emerging opportunities, and growing demand for labour, have created openings in all areas of the company, both for individuals new to the workforce and those who are experts in their field.
"The construction sector is a key part of Canada's economy, and like many other sectors is experiencing labour shortages across the country," said Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism, Jason Kenney. "Our Government is taking concrete steps to improve our immigration system to help address these shortages, including the creation of a new stream that will make it easier for skilled tradespersons to immigrate to Canada."
PCL's recruitment campaign will seek to attract prospective employees from across Canada, the United States, and overseas.
The My Legacy campaign brings a unified voice to PCL's recruitment efforts and a specific listing of job openings in each of the unique markets where it operates.
The PCL family of companies is consistently ranked among the best to work and is recognized for offering career advancement opportunities and a challenging and supportive work environment that promotes personal and professional growth.
