Developer and contractor Broccolini, based in Montreal, says it is looking to hire “several new talented people in anticipation of the rapid resumption of its activities in the coming weeks.
“Given the diversity of services that Broccolini offers, ranging from planning to construction to property management, a number of positions are open and need to be filled in order to help meet the company’s immediate needs,” the company said in a statement.
“We are proud to have been able to keep our entire team employed throughout the pandemic, with the exception of the day labourers directly affected by the closure of the construction sites. Our exceptional positioning in the real estate market is now affording us the opportunity to further expand our team following these difficult times,” said chief operating officer Anthony Broccolini.
He said the available positions are spread across the main Canadian markets where the company operates, namely in the Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal regions.
Once construction activities resume, Broccolini’s expectations for growth are excellent, thanks to a full backlog of contracted projects; a reflection of the quality, scale and prestige of the various industrial, commercial and residential projects the company has delivered over the last few years the statement says.
In order to carry out the projects already underway, and those that will be launching in the coming months, Broccolini is looking to hire qualified resources, particularly to fill the following positions:
• Senior project manager
• manager, real estate development
• site superintendent
The company says there are “many more” other opportunities.
“The conditions offered are more than competitive: group insurance, access to telemedicine, Employee Assistance Program and much more.”
The company likely qualifies for the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy program (CEWS), through which the federal government is covering 75 per cent of salaries and wages (to a maximum annual income of about $58,000 per year) for workers employed through May. The program allows the subsidy for new employees as long as they are arms-length from the company’s ownership.
“We’re looking into it of course,” Jean Langlois, director, communications and marketing, said in an email. “I can’t confirm at this time if we qualify or not.”
