Organigram Holdings Inc. (TSXV:OGI.VN) (OTCQB:OGRMF) (the “Company” or “Organigram”), a leading licensed producer of medical marijuana based in Moncton, New Brunswick, is pleased to announce that preparations are underway for the company’s first-ever career fair, to be held at the Delta Beausejour (750 Main St., Moncton) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 21.
Organigram is anticipating significant business growth as the company expands its existing medical cannabis production, and as it prepares for the adult recreational cannabis market (with legislation set to come into effect on July 1, 2018). The company is in the midst of a $60-million expansion at its production facility, located in the Moncton Industrial Park. “This is an incredibly exciting time for both our company as well as the industry as a whole,” said Greg Engel, Organigram CEO. “We’re delivering on our vision to be a major national player in both the medical and adult recreational cannabis markets and we are excited to do that by tapping into the incredibly skilled workforce right here in New Brunswick.” Organigram is seeking qualified candidates in multiple disciplines within the business, though the bulk of imminent opportunities exist in the areas of cultivation and production. Departments with future growth potential include, but aren’t limited to: sanitation, maintenance, quality assurance, security, laboratory, sales, accounting and client services.
“Our expansion and growth plans have put us into a very favorable position where we’re looking to grow our local workforce considerably,” continued Engel. “Our Moncton facility currently employs roughly 110 full-time employees, and we expect that number to grow beyond 250 by the end of 2018.”
Those interested in pursuing a career at Organigram are encouraged to attend the company’s #DiscoverOGI Career Day, scheduled to take place in Beausejour Rooms A & B at the Delta Beausejour (750 Main St., Moncton) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on October 21.
