First recruitment event was held by Flying Colours Corp. on Friday 22 March and Saturday 23 March to attract new and existing talent to the expanding North American maintenance, repair, overhaul and completions company. More than 230 people sent resumes prior to the event, and of those 50 face-to-face interviews were held with pre-screened candidates. An additional 110 walk-in candidates attended and met with human resource and technical professionals to discuss opportunities.

Existing employees explained their roles, management responded to specific company questions and the HR team accepted resumes and organized interviews. “We’re optimistic that we found some great candidates and will be working over the next week or two to make offers to some of those interviewed,” says Ian Ross, director of human resources, Flying Colours Corp. 

“It was obvious from the look of surprise on some of the faces that they were impressed by the scale of our operation here and our capabilities in terms of program quality and complexity. As well as finding some great new talent I think we clarified to many just what we do. With a Global business aircraft on display, we also showcased the diversity of skills it takes to complete and maintain such a machine. It was an extremely successful event and we anticipate we’ll hold more here in Canada, as well as in the USA over the next year.” 

A combination of existing and new roles were highlighted as the business plans to fill in excess of 50 openings in its paint, avionics, maintenance, interiors, cabin installation and upholstery departments by the mid-summer. 

With facilities in Canada, the USA, & Singapore, international aviation services company Flying Colours Corp, brings more than 30 years of experience to every facet of its business, which includes Green Completions, Interior Refurbishment & Modifications, Heavy Maintenance, Exterior Paint, Special Mission Modifications, and Avionics Installations and upgrades.

Flying Colours is an Authorized Service Facility for Bombardier and a Bombardier Preferred Completion Center.
