Posted on Oct 29, 2018 by Brad McCabe

FirstOnSite Restoration, Canada’s largest independent restoration company, today announced its title sponsorship of the Tradeswomen Spotlight at the 2018 Trades Expo in Surrey, British Columbia. FirstOnSite will be at the Expo, which takes place from October 25 to 26, inviting jobseekers to learn about the industry and how to become a member of its growing team.

“The Trades Expo is an amazing opportunity for job seekers – male and female – to come and talk to us firsthand and learn more about the restoration industry and our growing team. We have more than 60 women working with FirstOnSite in the B.C. region alone and we are excited to be supporting the Tradeswomen Spotlight.” said Erik Hecht, Director of Operations, B.C., FirstOnSite Restoration. “The majority of our leadership team came up from the field in trades, myself included, and we see it as an excellent opportunity for a great career helping people in times of crisis, with lots of opportunities for advancement. “

While many industries may be dwindling, one that is growing is the restoration business. Restoration specialists have had their hands full as many Canadian communities have been on alert. Currently an industry worth $210 billion in North America, restoration specialists are set to be more in demand due to the increasing intensity of disasters, aging infrastructure and the increase in water damage.

The Tradeswomen Spotlight gives attendees the opportunity to meet the women on the front lines of trades professions. Women represent 50 per cent of the population and there are an estimated 123,000 jobs available in the trades over the next five years as Generation X is set to retire. The opportunity for women to join a profession where they can own their skills, have long-term job security, and earn great wages has never been better than now.

The Trades Expo and FirstOnSite welcomes students, newcomers, and adults who are interested in the trades to stop by booth #320 and speak to leadership and field staff about the growing industry and job opportunities available across Canada.
