Sawmill Supervisor

Posting ID:     23538
Position Type:   Regular  
City:   Chetwynd, BC, Canada 
Location:   Chetwynd  




Sure, there are plenty of companies out there looking for great supervisors, so what sets Canfor apart?  We’re the only one looking for YOU.


You’re an industry leader who gets stuff done, and we need you at our Chetwynd sawmill for just that reason. You get people.  When you walk through that door and the urgency ramps up, you’re in it.  You’re the person who, when the going gets tough and production is on the line, can navigate this role safely and with purpose.  It’s what makes you a great leader of people and it’s what we expect of our Supervisors.


Much like yourself, Canfor doesn’t compromise.  Our Supervisors are ambassadors of their people and of the company itself.  If you’re going to be successful here, you’re going to understand the importance of balancing production, maintenance, and your team’s needs while being accountable to our safety culture. 


You bring several years of supervisory experience in a unionized, industrial environment and, for bonus points, a trade qualification. What will really put you over the top is your willingness to get out from behind the desk, balancing your professionalism and confidence with a dash of humility. If this describes you, Canfor is the right fit for you.  Come find out why Canfor is consistently rated amongst BC’s best employers.  At Canfor, we’re innovators in the forest products industry and if you are too, it’s time to grow your career working alongside some of the best and brightest in the business.


Canfor is a global forest products company, with operations in Canada, the US and Europe and we are committed to creating a safe and productive environment for everyone. All qualified applicants will receive equitable consideration.


There has never been a better time to join the Canfor team and become part of the modern forest industry. We have a wide range of rewarding careers in some of the best communities in North America, with plenty of room for advancement. Our mills are modern, high-tech and safe; and our marketing and sales activities are world-class. We offer competitive compensation and benefits packages, and are committed to the professional development of our employees.



Our Talent Acquisition team is actively recruiting on this role and in order to be considered, please apply today!


At Canfor, diversity means understanding, recognizing and valuing the differences that make each person unique. We see inclusion and diversity as an essential part of our productivity, creativity, innovation and competitive advantage. We strive for a fair and equitable recruitment process, where hiring decisions are based on the individual qualifications and experience of each applicant. 


We are not your run of the mill forest products company, join us and find out why. #canfortalent
