Flying Colours Corp. is launching a series of recruitment events to attract new and existing talent to the expanding North American maintenance, repair, overhaul and completions company. They take place Friday, March 22nd and Saturday, March 23rd at its Peterborough headquarters. 

A combination of existing and new roles will be highlighted during the two-day showcase. Flying Colours Corp. is hoping to fill in excess of 50 openings in its paint, avionics, maintenance, interiors, cabin installation and upholstery departments by mid-summer.

Many of the new roles are being created to support the addition of a new paint and maintenance hangar, which when completed will add a further 100,000 squared feet to the Peterborough facility.

Existing employees will be on hand to explain their roles, management will respond to specific company questions and the HR team will be accepting resumes and organizing interviews. Flying Colours specializes in the custom completion and maintenance of mid to large size business jets. Every project is unique and requires the talents and skilled labour of a variety of technicians and artisans to perform detailed, hand-crafted work.  

“We’re looking for additional people to join our work family as we continue to expand,” says Sean Gillespie, Executive VP Flying Colours Corp. “We’re interested in everyone from recent grads who want the opportunity to work towards their license to seasoned professionals, skilled craftspeople and aircraft technicians. Many people in other industries might not realize that their skills are transferable, which is why we’re holding this event.”

The event hours are Friday, March 22nd from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday, March 23rd from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To preschedule an interview, resumes can be sent in advance to HR@flyingcolourscorp.com with “FCCN Careers" in the subject line.
