Jobs in St. John’s, Canada

Ever since the city was heavily impacted by the collapse of cod fishing industry in the early 1990s, St. John’s has been struggling to redirect its economy toward other sectors, such as oil production, public service, and small businesses.

While the economy of St. John’s, the capital of Canada’s most easterly province Newfoundland and Labrador has experienced some growth over the past few years, the unemployment rate is still quite high. Between May and July 2017, the unemployment rate reached 14.9%, which is more than twice national average.

Still, owing to the gradual diversification of economy, things are looking up for St. John’s. Today, service industries, oil and mining, and tourism are doing the most to help lower the jobless rate in the region. St. John was also recently voted one of the top ten friendliest Atlantic cities for small businesses in Canada.

Oil Production

St. John’s is a major oil and gas industry center in Canada, as well as a member of the World Energy Cities Partnership. The city is home to the headquarters of ExxonMobil Canada, Chevron, Husky Energy, Suncor Energy, and Statoil. The region currently has three oil producing fields – Hibernia, Terra Nova and White Rose.

Current openings in local oil companies include laboratory technician, offshore installation manager, field supervisor, H2S supervisor, procurement professional, structural designer, marine chief engineer, valve engineer, piping designer, field supervisor, scaffolder, and surveyor.

Other in-demand jobs in the oil production industry include a wide range of offshore crewing positions, including seaman, driller, crane operator, derrickman, electrician, engine room operator, floorhand, materials coordinator, mechanic, motorman, radio operator, rig clerk, roughneck, rigger, toolpusher, and welder.

Public Service Jobs

Federal, provincial and municipal governments are the largest job generators in the area. The city of St. John’s is involved in a number of business and economic initiatives, and continues to make capital investments across different industries.

The City of St. John’s is currently advertising jobs for field workers in local schools and neighborhoods, housing development facilitators to help implement the City′s Affordable Housing Business Plan, as well as administrative staff specialists, planning and research analysts, and program administrators for the Memorial University of Newfoundland.

Tourism

St. John’s has the look of a city that has perfected the balance between traditional and modern, and knows how to capitalize on its unique tourism potential. As a popular cruise destination, St. John’s is teeming with tourist shops, clothing stores, bars, restaurants, urban parks, and leisure facilities.

Jobs in the tourism industry include everything from travel consultants, sales associates, waiters/waitresses, bartenders, and cooks to fitness and sports instructors, massage therapists, and aquatics coordinators.
