Finally! A job board devoted to Canada’s construction sector

March 30, 2021 | By Anthony Capkun

March 30, 2021 – Annex Business Media—publisher of numerous construction-sector business magazines, including Electrical Business—has launched an industry-specific job portal designed to make both recruiting and job searching more focused and efficient.

ConstructionJobsite.ca is powered by seven of Canada’s leading construction media brands, including:

• Electrical Business
• On-Site
• Canadian Contractor
• Rock to Road
• Crane & Hoist Canada
• Canadian Consulting Engineer

Together, these omni-channel brands reach 468,000 industry professionals—a reach that is amplified by 76,000 CASL-compliant emails, 150,000 monthly qualified unique site visitors, social media through Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram, and audience extension (as required).

“As we exit the Covid pandemic, the need for qualified talent in this sector will be greater than ever,” explains Scott Jamieson, Annex’s chief operating officer. “A recent BuildForce study forecasts the sector will need to recruit 309,000 workers to replace retirees between now and the end of the decade.”

Traditional, general-purpose job boards will not be sufficient for recruiting the right talent at that scale, Jamieson adds. “We believe a vertical, focused approach will be more efficient and cost effective. Our multi-platform reach creates the perfect opportunity to launch—and then to grow—among an audience of new industry entries.”

Annex has partnered with recruiting specialists ConstructionGigs to ensure a simple user experience and client success.

“Partnering with Annex and its construction media brands is an exciting opportunity,” says Duncan Brown, ConstructionGigs’ CEO. “We bring the platform and knowledge of the recruiting space, and what we need to do to be successful matchmakers; they deliver a massive audience to start, and experience in building new audiences.”

Single job postings start at $199, and sets of five (5) as low as $160 each.

A limited-time discount of 20% is available until May 15, 2021, by using the code CJS20.
