RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Irish Tower Crane operator here,finally got my journeyman status after a shitload of back and forth with the Albertan certifiying body due to the fact that most of my former employers have gone bust here in Ireland and so couldn't be contacted to verify my experience.Am planning on heading over(am still in Ireland at the moment) to look for work in approx 3 months and am trying to formulate a plan.
Can anybody point me in the right direction for potential employers(have checked out the union but there seems to be fuck all happening there with Tower Cranes)-I'm talking about agencies who supply Tower Crane Operators or the like?There doesn't seem to be that many Tower cranes in the tarsands so I'm thinking I need to be looking in the cities like Edmonton/Calgary or where ever.
I'm wide open to suggestions here so don't be shy.
