Edmonton, Alberta (November 4, 2013) — Actyl, a leading Canadian workforce solutions firm, will make a special recruiting trip to Zagreb, Croatia to interview candidates to fill more than 400 jobs in the hospitality industry throughout Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The trip, which will take place in mid-November, aims to bring temporary foreign workers (TFOs) into Canada to fill the labor gap that currently exists, particularly in the western part of the country.

“We are very pleased to embark on this trip to Croatia and meet with hard-working and talented candidates who are interested in both a job and a new adventure,” said Dr. Linda West, president of Actyl. “While most of the world has experienced slow economic growth over the past several years, western Canada has been booming thanks largely to oil and gas exploration. As a result, there is a labor shortage in a number of industries, including hospitality. We aim to help fill the gap by finding exceptional temporary foreign workers from Zagreb this month.”

Actyl works with more than 75 employers in Canada and seeks candidates who have experience working in restaurants and the trades. The firm has years of experience finding and recruiting TFOs, which are critical for businesses that need to fill workforce gaps. Individuals who accept jobs in Canada find them to be highly fulfilling, while the chance to travel and live abroad can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia are somewhat unique in today’s global marketplace, as they represent some of the few places where rapid job growth is evident. Paired with the growing economy is the fact that the region has an aging population, leaving more jobs open than can be filled by its current labor force.

“In many ways, western Canada is still an open frontier, with a wide range of possibilities for entrepreneurial and industrious individuals,” said West. “In many cases, these jobs lead to other great opportunities, so this is a chance you won’t want to pass up. We are looking forward to visiting Croatia and meeting potential candidates from many different backgrounds.”

Actyl officials will be available at the Four Points by Sheraton Panorama Zagreb from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. November 13-18, and will offer free information sessions and interviews. To learn more about this opportunity and to apply for open positions, visit
