A great resource for what is available to you locally, whether it be opportunities for training, employment or simply inspiration! Check out the Hot Sheet for this week…

Canadian Electric Vehicles Ltd. – October 2021

 

Tell us about your business/organization and what makes you stand out as an employer?

Canadian Electric Vehicles Ltd. (canEV)  is British Columbia’s original electric vehicle company!  Founded in 1995 in Errington, BC we have been designing and building zero emission electric vehicles and products for more than 25 years.  With electric now driving the car industry, there is surging demand for electrifying everything else – from work trucks and equipment to classic cars.  canEV is expanding both its consumer and commercial product lines to service its local and international customers.

How many employees do you have?

We are a team of six and are currently hiring for various positions.

What do you look for in a new employee?

We seek people who are focused on successful outcomes for the work they do, learning and perfecting skills and abilities, and being an effective communicator to enable our team environment.  We are a small company that is growing: each one of our team members serves and important role in our team.  We are looking for individuals who can work outside a narrow job description and are multi-talented.  Your interest in zero-emission vehicles and sustainability will enable the fit with our team, and company philosophy.

What advice would you give someone who wants to work for your organization?

If you have an interest in electric vehicles we would recommend working with anything related to gain experience whether that be joining your local electric vehicle association, events, or on-line video streaming (youtube.com) to learn more about EVs, or getting direct hands on experience.  Convert a bike to an e-bike or build a battery powered radio-controlled model; better yet convert a car to electric.  Any experience with electric motors and lithium batteries is helpful.  In regard to education, mechatronics and automation courses give a broader scope compared to mechanical or electrical engineering/technology.  Any related engineering, technology background education combined with personal hands-on experience either from work, EV associations or hobbies is attractive.

Do you anticipate hiring in the next 6 months? If so, for what types of positions?

  • Technologists and Engineers in Mechanical, Electrical and Mechatronics
  • Metal fabricators
  • Parts/Supply Chain Coordinators
  • Customer Service and Administration
