Do you have a passion for tools, construction, and a job well done?
Are you in the market for a good starting wage with opportunities for overtime?
We’re Sanderson Concrete, and we design and manufacture exceptional concrete products for the landscape, building, and architectural trades. Whether we’re making walls, steps, planters, or signage for parks and buildings, we provide our clients with an incredible range of products and finishes to choose from.
We’ve been growing in the last few years, and now we’re looking to add a few sets of hands around the shop to keep our business going in the right direction.
That’s where you come in.
As our new Concrete Labourer and Finisher, you’ll be involved in the manufacture of a range of concrete products coming through our shop: we’ve done everything from concrete ping pong tables to art installations (like 12-foot long salmon sculptures), so you really never know what’s going to be coming through the door next.
We make precast concrete for some of the most exciting and iconic projects in and around Vancouver – UBC, SFU, Robson Square, Kits Beach, Metro Vancouver Parks and more (hey – our precast concrete is even at the Grand Canyon and New York City!)
All of this and you work at one location – here at our Surrey plant – and mostly under cover (some outside work – but our buildings are heated in the winter, so if you are a construction labourer, say goodbye to 8 hours a day outside in the rain!)
And lay-offs? Nope! We haven’t had seasonal lay-offs in over ten years!
Your most important qualification for this role will be consistency and reliability: you’ll need to be punctual, do good work, and finish tasks on time to succeed here. You’ll also be doing a fair bit of learning on the job, so you must be good at taking direction and don’t need to be told everything twice.
We’re willing to train for this position, so if you’ve got some competency with tools and a good work ethic, you have everything you need to start a career with us.
Practically speaking, you will:
- Pour concrete moulds
- Strip, oil, and prepare concrete forms
- Polish and sandblast forms
- Troubleshoot for inconsistencies in finished products
- Maintain the shop floor for cleanliness and safety
- Work according to safety guidelines at all times
- Learn other aspects of our trade, like welding and working in our carpentry shop
We’re looking for people right away, so if you’re great with your hands and looking to make a good wage, we’re waiting to hear from you.
