Driven by a love of plants, Pure Sunfarms is one of Canada’s largest, single-site, licensed producers of high-quality, greenhouse-grown cannabis based in BC’s Fraser Valley (Delta). We are proud to bring together individuals from a wide breadth of industries, backgrounds, and experiences, and promote a culture of belonging where everyone can truly be themselves – in every form of expression that is natural to them. This is our priority and guiding light at Pure Sunfarms, driving our uncompromising approach to quality and success within the Canadian recreational cannabis market. We believe our differences are our strengths, letting us look at cannabis in a whole new light.
Reporting to the Manager, Recruitment and Employment Brand, the Recruiter will support all hiring activities, from workforce planning, to interviewing candidates and closing hires, to establishing and building effective processes, and training our hiring leaders on interviewing tips and techniques.
The Recruiters responsibilities include connecting with future Pure Sunfarms employees online and offline, screening applications and supporting hiring managers every step of the way. If you have 5+ years of experience evaluating people for roles of various fields and seniority levels, most importantly in a manufacturing/operations environment and have a love for all things recruitment, we’d like to meet you.
Relationship building and story telling are at the heart of what we do, your passion for recruitment, candidate and hiring manager experience, your desire to build and grow, your understanding of all the moving pieces and critical thinking skills will drive your success in this role.
We work in a fast-paced environment, rolling up our sleeves to build something bigger than ourselves. Other duties may arise from time to time/most of the time and as a team, we look to support each other.
