People looking for employment with municipalities in Canada will find the search a little easier now.
Hastings County CAO Jim Pine told county council Thursday there is now a one-stop shopping site for that.
Pine says the idea came out of the fact there are “thousands of retirements coming” in the municipal ranks and that something had to be done.
In an interview, he said that working with colleagues and a company, they “put together a national job site dedicated to municipal jobs across the country, a single point of reference where municipalities can post the jobs and potential employees can look for work. One of the big challenges we’ve found over the years is that it’s hard for people to find where municipalities have posted their jobs. We’re trying to make it easier for people to find work and for employers to find employees.”
He said municipalities are now being encouraged to post their jobs on the site at www.munijobs.ca
