The company, based in Edmonton, recently made visits to Croatia and the Czech Republic in an effort to recruit skilled workers to fill the current labour shortage in western Canada. Many of Actyl Group’s candidates come from “visa-free”
Actyl has recruited candidates for a broad range of positions, including warehouse workers, long-haul drivers, hotel front desk staff, heavy-duty mechanics, carpenters, dry-wallers, pipefitters, car mechanics and craft laborers, among others.
“We are thrilled to announce that we currently have more than 1,000 ready-to-work applicants from visa-free countries throughout Europe and the Caribbean region,” said Linda West, president of Actyl Group. “There are many exciting job opportunities available right now for those seeking rewarding employment. We are confident that our applicants have the skills, knowledge and motivation necessary to fill many of western Canada’s most in-demand jobs.”
Actyl Group is also working closely with applicants who have been granted “working holidays,” or one-year work permits. Canadian employers do not need to seek a Labour Market Opinion (LMO) before hiring applicants who are on working holidays, which is another major perk for many businesses. Hiring applicants for the duration of their one-year permit is a good option for employers aiming to fill temporary or seasonal positions.
Right now, Actyl Group is working with candidates who have work backgrounds as shipbuilders, hydro-geologists, junior geologists, childcare workers, a former business owner with an MBA, economists and electrical engineers. Many of these candidates are also willing to take jobs outside of their current fields.
“All of our applicants, whether they’re temporary or permanent immigrants, are skilled and hard-working,”
