Jobs in Oshawa, Canada

Did you know that BMO Capital market report for 2016 named Oshawa the best city in Canada for job-seekers? Last year, Oshawa boasted an impressive annual employment growth of 6.9%, while the unemployment rate went down by 1.6% compared to the previous year. So what is it that makes Oshawa the number one city for work?

Situated on the shores of Lake Ontario in the eponymous east-central province of Canada, Oshawa was once known as the “Automotive Capital of Canada”. It is, after all, home to the headquarters of Canadian General Motors. While the automobile giant remains an important source of employment in the region, the meteoric growth of the city’s economy in the past decade has transformed Oshawa from a predominantly blue collar town into a bustling research and education center.

Since Oshawa is recognized as one of the fastest-growing hiring markets in Canada, employment opportunities are abundant as long as you know what you’re looking for. Here are some of the options to explore:

Auto Industry                  

The General Motors assembly plant in Oshawa currently employs over 3,600 hourly and 400 salaried employees, and is regularly ranked as one of the employers in country in terms of salaries and benefits.

In May 2017, General Motors announced plans to add up to 500 new jobs at the Oshawa plant. The current openings include office manager, site services technician, self-driving car engineer, controls test engineer, image processing specialist, software developer, truck driver, laborer, and warehouse assistant.

Construction Work

Oshawa continues to break the records in the number of construction permits issued every month. In July 2017, the city issued 626 new building permits, surpassing the previous record from July 2010 by 271 permits. The combined residential and industrial construction value reached the whopping figure of $145 million in just one month.

Hundreds of construction jobs are currently advertised on Indeed.com, including construction manager, bricklayer, track laborer, renovation carpenter, heavy equipment operator, insulation worker, blacksmith, cement finisher, stone mason, handyman, and loader, among others.

Education

Oshawa is home to 28 elementary schools, 6 secondary schools, and 3 higher education institutions (Durham College, Trent University Durham, and University of Ontario Institute of Technology). The provincial government is noted for its generous investments in educational institutions across Ontario.

These institutions offer plenty of employment opportunities for younger professionals such as early childhood educators, teacher assistants, foreign language teachers, social workers, curriculum developers, residence assistants, and administrative officers.
