Posting ID:      19131
Position Type:    Regular/Full-Time    
City:    Various Locations, BC, Canada 
Location:   Prince George Sawmill (BC11) 


As the Covid-19 Pandemic has created an unprecedented business climate, we have temporarily suspended any hiring across our business. We expect that in the coming weeks, as the situation begins to normalize, we will be ramping up our hiring. This posting is for a position that we will very likely have in the future. While we’re waiting for normal hiring activities to resume, we will be reviewing applications, conducting assessments and telephone interviews over the coming weeks so that when hiring begins again, we will be ready to proceed. If you’re interested in this role, we encourage you to apply today!


Canfor’s strength comes from the diversity of our skilled and resilient workforce. As our company continues to grow and diversify, so do our career opportunities. Let us take this opportunity to tell you how you could be the best fit for Canfor.  


You, just like the very best electricians are a do-er, who enjoy hands-on challenges, where you can focus in on a particular task, to get the job done right the first time! You might even say it’s just hard-wired in your system (Pun intended).


As a safety conscious team player, you’ll soon recognize why Canfor is consistently rated as one of the industry’s leaders when it comes to safety. For bonus points, you’ll bring your knowledge of PLCs and a couple years of experience in an industrial or manufacturing environment.


Put your Electrician Red Seal to work as you join our world class operations. Your ability to troubleshoot, perform installations, and analyze safety hazards, in an electrically charged environment will serve you well in this role. Sure, you may have to pull some cable every now and then, but don’t let that fool you; this is an exciting opportunity to put your skills to use with one of BC’s best employers.


We’re innovators, and that’s why we need people like you to make a difference, and work alongside the best and brightest in the business. It’s time to grow your career. What are you waiting for?
