Kim Day President of Steele Auto Group announced a "come home" campaign to attract those interested in a career in the auto industry in Atlantic Canada. Said Day, "we have exciting career opportunities for those who may have left the region to start their career or those who are looking to enjoy the awesome lifestyle found here in Atlantic Canada. We're growing, we believe in advancing careers inside the group and today we are announcing financial assistance to those outside the region to come back to Atlantic Canada and for those inside the region to relocate to their province of choice.
Steele Auto will, based on the role, contribute up to $7,500 relocation assistance for those outside the region and up to $2,500 for those relocating within Atlantic Canada. We are also in discussions with organizations in all 4 Provinces, including provincial governments, and they have programs and support services to assist in our HR recruitment efforts."
Ruth Meagher, Director of HR, added, "we have an immediate need for 59 posts, 70 positions and a near term need for 100+. We feel that the time is right to encourage those from away to come back home. There are terrific immediate positions, terrific career advancement and mobility options and of course there's the benefits offered by living in Atlantic Canada with vibrant economies, affordable housing and the beauty of our geography. We're growing and our need isn't going away - if you are looking to make a change please check out our careers page or if this has planted a seed for the future follow us on social media or our website to monitor the openings. We also really want to stress that we welcome and encourage diversity on our team - we're super proud to share that in a historically male dominated industry 23% of our 2100 team members are women including 50% of our Executive Leadership team".
Colin Jamieson, General Manager of Steele Chevrolet added, "this is a terrific organization to work for - the culture, the people, the opportunities - quite frankly Steele Auto Group has the ability to change the lives and the path of our team members. There's a reason Steele Auto has been the recipient of the Platinum Award for Canada's Best Managed Companies".
