McInnis Cement and Emplois Compétences have announced the signing of a partnership agreement for the recruitment and development of the local workforce for the cement plant at Port-Daniel–Gascons.

Emplois Compétences opened its offices on October 13 in Port-Daniel–Gascons to support McInnis Cement in the recruitment of all employees. The positions to be filled are varied and include executives and professionals for technical, industrial and operational positions.

“McInnis Cement is dedicated to becoming the new benchmark for the cement industry in North America,” said Plant Manager Alexandre Rail. “To achieve this goal, it’s essential that we attract the best employees and train them to be completely prepared for the operational phase scheduled to begin in autumn 2016. The coming months will be very intense for McInnis Cement, and we are especially pleased to be able to count on the expertise and support of Emplois Compétences in the recruitment and development of our future employees.”

According to Maryse Tremblay, McInnis Cement director of communications and corporate social responsibility, “The arrival of Emplois Compétences in Port-Daniel–Gascons is a tangible example of the benefits directly flowing from our presence in the region.”

“By creatively engaging in the communities where the firm operates, Emplois Compétences could become a major driver of the skills development of the Gaspé workforce, impacting well beyond the needs of our business. This creates a very interesting snowball effect for area employers and training institutions,” she concluded.
