More than 396,000 jobs were lost in BC through March and April. Finance Minister Carole James recently expressed the huge impact that COVID-19 has had on employment in the province; our unemployment rate was sitting at just 5% before the pandemic, it jumped to 11.5% in April, and May isn’t looking much better.
You might be dealing with job loss or reduced hours on a personal level or within your family, and perhaps you’re worried that your current career isn’t the right fit anymore.

If you’ve got a strong work ethic, it might be time to make a change, even if you’ve never considered a career in roofing or construction before.
We’re all spending a lot more time at home and in front of our computers during the ongoing crisis. Working at Villa Roofing means you’re not stuck inside a stuffy living room or office, and you’ve got diversity in your role as projects are primarily on the large-scale residential towers that being built all over Vancouver. It’s a great alternative to the 9 to 5 rat race of the office job and corporate environment we know all too well.
The company is currently hiring for both qualified roofers and sheet-metal installers. Don’t have a background in roofing or construction? No problem. Villa Roofing wants to train you in the art of roofing, from the ground up.

One of the best things about working for an industry leader in roofing and waterproofing systems is that the work offers a competitive wage with benefits including medical, dental, pension and a retention bonus program. That’s not to mention the fact that there are plenty of opportunities for career advancement within the company.
Staff are encouraged to have a work-life balance with a typical schedule from 7 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday. This means you still have time left in the day to see your friends or go for a bike ride after work.
If you’re struggling to live the lifestyle that you desire in Vancouver, working with Villa Roofing can help you get to where you want to be, all while developing new skills.
Canada’s construction and maintenance industry is forecasted to grow by 50,200 workers by 2029. And since there is a strong construction market here in Vancouver, now is a great time to start your career in an exciting and growing industry.
