As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our world has changed.
Those who are working in what the PEI government deems as essential services are challenged by work overload and the call for social distancing and heightened hygiene measures, yet they are in constant contact with people.
Those who are working in what is deemed as non-essential services are either working from home or have been laid off.
In spite of all of these changes, we are still seeing jobs being posted, which is very good news. The jobs are for both essential and non-essential services.
On March 27, 2020, the Government of Canada announced tremendous support measures to help small businesses keep their staff and maintain their operations during this time.
We can only hope with the existing and future provincial and federal support measures, staff who have been laid off as a result of COVID-19 can return to work and more hiring will take place.
The job posting sites listed below advertise jobs that are available on PEI. Take a look through them all and if you have any questions about the site or as you do your research, email [email protected]
