Construction-centric job board launches

March 30, 2021  By Crane & Hoist Canada

Annex Business Media, publisher of numerous construction sector business magazines, including Crane & Hoist Canada, has launched an industry-specific job portal designed to make both recruiting and job searching more focused and efficient. The portal – – is powered by seven of Canada’s leading construction media brands, including:

  • On-Site
  • Rock to Road
  • Crane & Hoist Canada
  • Canadian Contractor
  • Electrical Business
  • HPAC
  • Canadian Consulting Engineer

Together, these omni-channel brands reach 468,000 industry professionals, a reach that is amplified by 76,000 CASL-compliant emails, 150,000 monthly qualified unique site visitors, social media through Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram, and audience extension as required.

“As we exit the COVID pandemic, the need for qualified talent in this sector will be greater than ever,” explains Annex Chief Operating Officer Scott Jamieson. “A recent BuildForce study forecasts the sector will need to recruit 309,000 workers to replace retirees between now and the end of the decade. Traditional, general-purpose job boards will not be sufficient for recruiting the right talent at that scale – we believe a vertical, focused approach will be more efficient and cost-effective. Our multi-platform reach creates the perfect opportunity to launch, and then to grow among an audience of new industry entries.”

Annex has partnered with recruiting specialists ConstructionGigs to ensure a simple user experience and client success.


“Partnering with Annex and its construction media brands is an exciting opportunity,” says ConstructionGigs’ Chief Executive Officer Duncan Brown. “We bring the platform and knowledge of the recruiting space and what we need to do to be successful matchmakers; they deliver a massive audience to start, and experience in building new audiences.”
