Calling all Cape Breton Employers! Cape Breton Partnership launches Online Job BoardAugust 11, 2020

Cape Breton island, NS – The Cape Breton Partnership has created, Cape Breton’s first online job board for Cape Breton employers and job seekers locally, nationally and internationally. Employers from across the Island are encouraged to promote any vacant jobs and job seekers are asked to visit the site frequently as new job opportunities are advertised.

“We know that to grow our economy, we must grow our population as well. The creation of a Cape Breton job board will play a role in both,” says Carla Arsenault, Cape Breton Partnership President & CEO. “This platform has the potential to help address current and future labour shortages while attracting talent to Cape Breton.”

Shortly after the COVID-19 global pandemic outbreak, job fairs were no longer a viable option for employers and job seekers. As a result, the Cape Breton Partnership began working with digital agency NovaStream to create an online job board platform. 

The Cape Breton Job Board is unique for three reasons;

  1. Every job advertised will be located on Cape Breton Island.
  2. Employers will have access to Cape Breton Partnership staff to assist them with advertising jobs they have not been able to fill or may not usually promote.
  3. Job seekers will have the option to include immigration-related information to enhance an employer’s recruitment and selection capacity.
